  • Berlin's firm stance on Greece exposes divergence with Paris

    Germany has broken ranks with Paris and Brussels in slamming the door on talks with the Greek government on a new bailout deal before Sunday's crucial referendum, analysts say. After weeks in which German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande appeared united in their efforts to end a stalemate with Athens, the discord could hardly have been clearer.

  • Greek deposits may be seized to save banks: FT

    Greek savers could lose at least 30 percent of their bank deposits which could be seized to help shore up the country's banking system as fears grow of financial collapse, the FT reported Saturday. Depositors with over 8,000 euros ($8,900) in the bank may be made to take a "haircut" similar to those taken by Cypriot account holders in 2013, when uninsured funds were seized to stabilise the financial sector, the FT said, quoting bankers and businessmen close to negotiations. Greek banks have been shut since Monday, and the system faces collapse if the ECB declares the banks insolvent should Greece refuse to pay back its debts.

  • 6 best part-time jobs for retirees

    You’re not alone in your want — or need -- to work in retirement: 72% of adults age 50 and older say they want to keep working after they retire, and nearly half (47%) of current retirees say they either have worked or plan to work during retirement, according to a survey of more than 7,000 adults conducted by Merrill Lynch Bank of America Corp. released last year. Working in retirement isn’t just about the money (though, let’s be serious, most of us could use a little extra). The most popular reason for working in retirement is to “stay mentally active” for 62% of retirees and 51% of older adults cite it as one of the top reasons they are working in retirement, according to the Merrill Lynch Bank of America survey.
