Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras Has Resigned; 3rd Bailout Underway

Will Biden run for president? Several sources in the Democratic Party have said that the vice president is seriously considering throwing his hat into the ring.

There are advantages and disadvantages for Biden should he run, and pundits and other politicians have been quick to weigh in.

Here's more of what we've learned so far...

Greece's Drastic "Plan B" Tells Us to Prepare a Financial Survival Kit

Greece and its "troika" of creditors – the European Central Bank (ECB), the European Commission, and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) – have finally agreed on terms for its latest bailout, worth about €86 billion ($95 billion).

Athens will pay a heavy price in sovereignty, becoming a "debt colony" of sorts. The terms require Greece to surrender policymaking power over huge swathes of its economy and, indeed, its entire society, to the troika.

So, more than ever, I'm convinced that we need to prepare a "financial survival kit" as global debt hits record levels.

I'm going to show you how to do that today...

What's Next After Greece Bailout Agreement?

After a 23-hour discussion, a Greece bailout agreement was reached Friday between the country and its international lenders. The Greece bailout is worth 85 billion euros ($93 billion).

Now many are wondering what's next for the country amid this debt crisis.

Here's everything investors need to know now...

What Happened in the Greek Stock Market Today?

What happened in the Greek stock market today was a good indication of the floundering confidence in the struggling Hellenic Republic.

The Athens Stock Exchange today crashed as much as 22.9% before it recovered and closed down 16.4%.

So, with what happened in the Greek stock market today, does that mean it's time to buy Greek stocks on the cheap and wait for a bounce?

Global Economy

Greek Bailout Will Feed the Joint EU-NATO Energy Empire

The Greek bailout is the latest exercise in a geopolitical ploy to expand European business interests and reinforce North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) doctrine.

The only logical conclusion to this point is that this Greek bailout and the two preceding it were never about helping Greece repay.

The Greek debt crisis is about way more than just Greece or holding together the Eurozone...

The Greek Vote and What It Means for the Energy Sector

The energy sector is about to be rocked by the Greek vote. Because whether European creditors like it or not, to avoid contagion to the rest of Europe, they'll need a contemporary version of the Brady Bonds that allowed emerging market countries to refinance defaulted debt some four decades ago.

What happens next will fill the streets of Greek cities with angry citizens who voted a resounding "No" barely two weeks ago.

Here's how the aftershocks of the Greek vote will be felt throughout the energy sector...

We Have Tsipras and Merkel to Thank for This Market-Crushing Profit Play

Greek banks were hanging onto a cliff's edge by their fingernails when Greek and European parliaments and finance ministers debated the future of Greece within Europe.

But less than a week after the referendum that said "όχι!" (No!) to more austerity, Prime Minister Tsipras had already betrayed that vote, proposing considerable cuts in exchange for yet another lifeline.

That is just where our can-kicking profit opportunity lies...

Recent Greek Bailout a Sign of Political Crisis and Syriza Failure

It's hard to imagine a situation where this most recent 86 billion euro ($94.1 billion) Greek bailout will succeed where the first 110 billion euro ($120.4 billion) Greek bailout in 2010 failed.

Or where the second 130 billion euro ($142.2 billion) Greek bailout in 2012 also failed.

Here's what is going to happen with this recent round of funding, and what is to become of Greece...
