Bloomberg reporter covering Greek economy, banks, politics, serious stuff. Views my own and retweets are probably the baby eating the phone.

Tsipras Defeat in Attica Battle Bolsters Bank of Greece Governor — Advantage Yannis Stournaras. In the battle of wits between Greece's central bank governor and Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, the former seems to have won the latest round, giving him a leg up should he harbor any ambitions of a return to politics.

No Man’s Land for Greek Bonds as Tsipras Vacillates on Reforms — As the latest season of the Greek drama premiers this week, investors are steering clear of the country's bonds and stocks. Greek government bonds have delivered the worst returns of all European sovereigns tracked by Bloomberg's World Bond Indexes in the past three months, even after Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras managed to secure an accord with creditors for the disbursement of emergency loans in June.

Euro-Area Economic Confidence Declines as Brexit Shock Sinks In — Euro-area economic confidence worsened more than analysts predicted in August in a sign that the reverberations of Britain's decision to leave the European Union may finally be reaching companies and households. An index of industry and consumer confidence fell to 103.5 from a revised 104.5, the European Commission in Brussels said on Tuesday.

Bentley in Belgravia Shows Greece Is Good for Buyout CEO — Few financiers in London covet a job with a government-owned Greek bank. A glimpse of Pavlos Stellakis's Bentley or his townhouse in Belgravia might have changed their minds. For more than a decade, Stellakis has presided over a private-equity business for Greece's oldest and largest lender.

Euro-Area Economic Sentiment Unexpectedly Rises After Brexit — Euro-area economic confidence unexpectedly improved in July in a sign that the immediate impact on growth of Britain's surprise vote to leave the European Union may be muted.

Greek Economy Grew in Second Quarter Despite Dragging Review — Greece unexpectedly averted a recession in the second quarter when the country and its creditors haggled over the release of bailout funds. Gross domestic product expanded 0.3 percent in the three months through June after shrinking a revised 0.1 percent in the previous quarter, the Hellenic Statistical Authority said in an e-mailed statement on Friday.

Apocalypse Delayed in Europe on Brexit Tale of Two Economies — The euro-area is shaking off the divorce. Economic confidence in the 19-nation region unexpectedly rose this month, indicating the immediate impact of Britain's vote to leave the European Union may be muted. The same may not be true in the U.K.

In Greece’s Economic War of Attrition, Tsipras Counts on Peace — From street protests and collapsing governments to eleventh-hour deals and financial lifelines, Greece has gotten used to lurching from crisis to crisis during its endless economic meltdown.

Greece Running Out of Time for Quick ECB Waiver Reinstatement — Greece may be running out of time if it wants to restore regular European Central Bank refinancing lines for its banks as soon as this week.
