Greece needs a second election

blogs.reuters.com — Most scenarios facing the country are bleak, but there is one outcome that is not too bad. This will require the prime minister not only to eat his words, but also to call a new election to get a fresh mandate. The timing is tough, but just doable.

Key to a Greek Deal Lies With the People

nytimes.com — Most scenarios facing Greece are bleak. The country could default, introduce capital controls, forcibly convert savers' deposits into bank capital, quit the euro and so forth. But there is still a chance that things will end up relatively O.K. All those who care about Greece, starting with Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, need to work hard on the least bad path forward.

blogs.reuters.com — David Cameron needs to realise this as he builds up to the referendum on the UK's membership of the EU, which could take place as early as next year. The UK prime minister may get little from set-piece renegotiation of Britain's EU relationship; reforms are more promising.

Making Sense of the Options for Greece

nytimes.com — Greece seems to lack a strategy for extricating itself from its parlous state. Not only does the government, led by Alexis Tsipras, lack a credible plan for reaching agreement with its eurozone creditors and the International Monetary Fund, it doesn't seem to have a thought-out fallback plan of how to default while containing the damage.

Concern for Business Leaders as Cameron’s Win Edges Britain Closer to E.U. Exit

nytimes.com — David Cameron's re-election as Britain's prime minister increases the risk that the country will quit the European Union in the next few years.
