Greek consumer inflation accelerated to a 5.4% in May, more than three times euro zone level.

This should work out well with the new austerity measures.

cheers Mr. Unum! regarding heavy sour shrimp:

There is a widespread misconception that the chinese character for "shrimp scampi" results from the superimposition of the character representing "moist" upon the character representing "decapod crustacean". 

This psuedosinophilic reductionist propaganda is to linguistics as chow mien (west coast bitches! ) is to cuisine -- the truth could not be further from this dribble.

If one wanted to reproduce the AUTHENTIC character for "shrimp scampi", he or she would superimpose the character for "biofuel organism" upon that for "Billy Nungesser". Upon this dyad our scribe would then superimpose the character for "I surrender. I just want maria beltramwhateverthef*ck to sit on my face – just once – before the golden horde Donner-Parties me".

So the markets in the US go up becuase China had exported more shit (and keeps the money in China), the EU is so fucked that they are keeping rates at current levels (probably have to lower the rates in a month), jobless claims had to be revised to 456,000 (which is still higher than alchemist....er economist estimates), and the US tade deficit widened (partially becuase our exports are contracting, which I am sure is helping our jobless problem).  These markets are definitely on some very shaky broken legs.  The crutch will get kicked out any moment now.
