    Marc Faber: Let's face reality, Greece is bankrupt

    CNBC
    Greece is bankrupt and should default, well-known investor Marc Faber told CNBC on Friday. "Even if Greece grows at 10 percent per annum for the next ten years, it will not be able to pay its debts back. It's bankrupt. We better face the reality and not kick the can the can down the road. Greece should default," Faber said. But he added that while Greece could leave the Eurozone and adopt a parallel currency, geopolitics are coming into play and there is no appetite in Europe to let the country exit from the single currency bloc.

    3 Numbers: UK jobs robust; US March CPI; US consumer sentiment
    A strong UK jobs report could drive the pound higher. Employment will be a key factor in the Bank of England's monetary policy deliberations; but the consensus view is that it is unlikely to hike rates before spring next year.

    Bets are off on Grexit as default fears grow

    CNBC
    A UK bookmaker has stopped taking bets on Greece leaving the Eurozone, saying it is increasingly likely that the country could "begin the process of departing" very shortly, CNBC's Holly Ellyatt reports. William Hill closed its book on whether Greece will leave the Eurozone during 2015, and on which country would be first to leave the bloc. It comes as one analyst told CNBC Thursday that the country faced a "slow-death scenario"—including a default and messy exit from the Eurozone—as the country's economic crisis took another turn for the worse following a credit rating downgrade.
