Greek debt talks end Day 2 with no deal ... yet

A deal on restructuring Greek debt remained elusive Thursday as talks with the nation's private sector creditors ended for a second day without agreement.

The Institute of International Finance, which represents the private sector investors who own Greek government bonds, said negotiations would resume Friday.

The talks in Athens hinge on a plan that that cuts the value of Greek government bonds in half.

The deal would result in significant losses for the private sector, which holds over €200 billion of Greece's €350 billion debt load.

    I shouldve probably worded that differently. While it may not have an immediate impact on the American people it will most definitely impact wallstreet and the l%ers which in turn trickle down to the rest of us.
