Change Won't Be Legislated By Greece

Most Americans, including Jamie Dimon, could care less whether Greece stay or leaves the Euro. Sentiment, if anyone really has an opinion, varies from where's Greece to let the bums default.

What happens in Greece does matter. Inter-connectivity between not only domestic but also global financial institutions, a similar backdrop that fueled panic during the Great Depression, exists today. If Greece goes down, so do all the institutions and nations supporting it. Default in Greece could force liquidations in other markets characterized by declining liquidity since 2007. An institution forced to raise cash as a result of margin call(s), for example, may find limited to no bids for assets they need to sell. Other other words, they'll be up the creek (without a paddle).
