A maior ameaça

Quentin Peel, "Schäuble view on eurozone at odds with US" (Financial Times):
"Wolfgang Schäuble, Germany's finance minister, has dismissed speculation about any Spanish request for eurozone support in buying its sovereign bonds, and ruled out making more concessions to help Greece, on the eve of talks on the eurozone crisis with Tim Geithner, US Treasury secretary.
The tough German resistance to launching any new initiative in the two most embattled member states of the eurozone looks set to clash with Washington's constant appeal for action to stem contagion in the crisis.
In evidence to the US Congress last week, Mr Geithner said the eurozone crisis was the "greatest danger" for the US economy, urging European leaders once again to act swiftly and credibly in dealing with it".
