Greece’s possible exit from the euro moved to the center of Europe’s financial-crisis debate, rattling markets as authorities in Athens struggled to form a government.
Meetings brokered by Greek President Karolos Papoulias were set to continue today after Syriza, the leading anti-bailout party, rejected a unity government following inconclusive elections May 6.

There is, of course, a realistic chance that this will start a chain of events that will cause a complete collapse of the Euro. Stay tuned for the next exciting episode.
