Greeks Dread Election Results

Greeks say they’ll head to the polls Sunday with a dark cloud over them, fearing that no political party may be up to the Herculean task of rebuilding the nation’s economy. “I would be very surprised if—ta da!—everything is clear” on Monday after the elections, said Vanguard Asset Management economist Peter Westaway. Greek voters could not choose a clear winner in the last round of elections in May, but this time around politicians have said they’ll make the compromises necessary to form a government. With talk of a Greek exit whispered around the continent, a deal may be a painful necessity to prevent further catastrophe.
