Greece to vote on
new economic plan

Financial reform
expected to affect
U.S. stock market
NEW YORK (AP) - A wave of
selling swept across Wall Street
and stock markets around the
world yesterday after Greece's
prime minister said he would
call a national vote on an unpop-
ular European plan to rescue
that nation's economy.
The Dow Jones industrial
average finished down nearly
300 points. It swung in 100 point
bursts throughout the day as
investors reacted to sometimes
conflicting headlines about the
next steps in Greece's long-
running debt crisis. Treasurys
and other assets considered
safe surged. The stocks of major
banks, including Citigroup and
JPMorgan Chase, were hit hard.
Intense selling roiled mar-
kets in Europe. Italy's main
stock index dropped 6.8 percent.
France's fell 5.4 percent and Ger-
many's fell 5 percent.
The value of the dollar rose,
and bond prices jumped so dra-
matically that analysts said they
were stunned. Analysts said the

bond action reflected fears that
the turmoil in Greece would tear
at the fabric of Europe's financial
system and create a crisis that
could engulf the entire European
Union, which together forms the
world's largest economy.
"This brings all of the con-
cerns about Europe back to the
front burner," said Scott Brown,
chief economist at Raymond
James. "If this ends up turning
into a financial catastrophe in
Europe, then no one will escape
it."
The prime minister of Greece
said unexpectedly Monday that
he would put the European res-
cue plan to a popular vote, the
first referendum to be held in
Greece since 1974.
The plan requires banks that
hold Greek national bonds to
accept 50 percent losses to help
keep the Greek economy afloat.
It also beefs up a European bail-
out fund and requires banks to
strengthen their financial cush-
ions.
There were also late reports
that Greek lawmakers dissented 0
from the plan, raising the possi-
bility that Greece's government
would not last until a confidence
vote on Friday.
