    Newlyweds Valasia Limnioti and Konstantinos Patronis' long-planned "dream trip" to the U.S. ended in New York City, where their three-week honeymoon quickly turned into a nightmare: Their Greek-issued credit and debit cards were suddenly declined and they were left penniless.

  • China points finger at 'manipulators'

    Chinese stocks fell again on Friday, as the securities regulator said it was investigating suspected market manipulation amid increasingly desperate attempts by Beijing to head off a full-blown crash. A flurry of policy moves over the past week, including an interest rate cut and a relaxation of margin lending rules, have failed to arrest the sell-off, which has started to spill over into some commodities markets such as iron ore and steel. The Shanghai benchmark had slumped below 4,000 points on Thursday for the first time since April - a key support level that analysts had expected Beijing to defend.

  • The case for Greece: when it forgave Germany's debt

    The International Monetary Fund certainly thinks so, according to a new report in which it argues Greece should get help. After the hell of World War II, the Federal Republic of Germany — commonly known as West Germany — got massive help with its debt from former foes. The 1953 agreement, in which Greece and about 20 other countries effectively wrote off a large chunk of Germany's loans and restructured the rest, is a landmark case that shows how effective debt relief can be.

  • 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.

  • Greeks struggle with daily grind as foreigners head to beach

    With cash withdrawals cut to 60 euros ($67) per day, many Greeks aren't spending in restaurants for fear that they will run out of cash they would need if a family member got ill or another serious problem developed. On the streets of the Greek capital, resplendent in the early days of summer, there's still a veneer of normalcy — at least for foreigners, who aren't affected by the draconian rules imposed on Greeks.
