President Karolos PapouliasPresident Karolos Papoulias of Greece failed in his endeavors to draw a consensus among various political leaders for a final round of talks in order to avoid new elections. A wave of fear emerged among the masses that the country is heading for a bankruptcy and exiting from the euro zone. With this news, the European shares tumbled down and caused a rise in the Spanish and Italian bond rates. The debt crisis in the euro zone seems to be provoked once again.
