  1. Morgan Stanley's John Mack said he was in Greece last week, as the southern European nation mulled a $6.8 billion bond offering to ease some of the country's financial woes.

    He said the country's fiscal problems "spooked" currency markets, particularly trading in the euro and U.S. dollar.

    But he downplayed the severity of Greece's problems, calling them no worse than Portugal, Spain or Ireland.
