AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Forget Fort Knox or the Federal Reserve. Texas has decided to start keeping its gold holdings within in its own borders. But what makes sense politically in such a sovereignty-loving place is creating a logistical conundrum.
Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis told a German newspaper he expects to get a deal with international creditors on Monday, regardless of the outcome of Sunday's aid-for-reforms referendum. "I expect that we will have an agreement on Monday.. And it will be independent of whether a majority vote 'yes' or 'no' in the referendum," the Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung quoted Varoufakis as saying in extracts released on Saturday. "Mr Schaeuble made clear in 2012 that he would prefer a Grexit," the paper quoted Varoufakis as saying.
