opposition view of this town. >> mr. tsipras and five months has brought the real economy to it stand still and turn us to a recessionary cycle. undo everything that has been done basically. now we are fizzling -- facing the following choice. an a deal that will cost greek people 5 million euros on one hand and now a deal that will mean we are facing uncharted waters, bankruptcy, and a possible exit. that is where we argue we are hearing optimism come out from mr. tsipras'circle all the time. it seems there's something being discussed at the moment. it was that there will not be a staff level agreement today. naturally, we want the best thing for greece. the vast majority of greeks once ant to stay in the eurozone.
was to keepance within the eurozone. he cannot take us out of the eurozone. a lot of people are going to be protesting about that later tonight. guy: the greek people are voting with their wallets. they're taking their money out of the banks at a fairly alarming rate. are they doing the right thing at this point? is that what you would be doing? >> i'm not going to judge anybody. there is a large amount of uncertainty at the moment. this is a critical thing for greece's future. it is not a little bitty decision. it is a huge decision. he is not allowed to jeopardize our future and the eurozone. he does not have the mandate to do that. yes, people are taking money out of banks. the public sector has stopped making any payments toward anybody except for wages and salaries. we are not really sure how long that is going to last. he has really put himself in an impossible situation.

greek people are voting with their wallets by taking money out of banks come about the same time, polls seem to favor him. be athink elections would bad idea at the moment. the one thing we have going during the summer is tourism. i think that would create a lot of problems. i'm not sure it would solve anything. plus, time is running out. who knows what it will be like in the 25 days leading up to elections, which is the soonest they could happen? mr. tsipras is up to the polls and still has a good rating, but he has not hurt anybody yet. people are still hoping that he could bring something in the steel that is good for them. you have to remember that he promised just about everything -- higher minimum wage, abolishing property tax, lowering taxes, something for pensioners. he has promised a whole host of things. thele are still hoping of
last minute that he will be able to make good on some of those promises, which is clearly out of the question at this point. guy: thank you very much. she is joining us from new democracy. coming up a quarter past 5:00 athens, there is a pro-euro membership rally in the square. we will seek what comes on the summits and the banks tomorrow. it is going to be another interesting week for the greek economy. olivia: thank you so much. that is bloombergs guy johnson. great joined by the opposition finance minister. still to come, more health care deal drama. why and from is not giving up -- them is not giving up the fight quite yet to cigna. ♪

greece paying, according to bookmakers. for whatever that's worth. let's as the stock market goes, you wake up and look at about $100 billion for these deals. is not necessarily a bad thing if someone comes back with higher yields. but there's all sorts of deal talk in the health insurance. olivia: maybe u.s. equity investors reacting. earlier, iere saying get all this investor critique, guess come in and say doesn't really happen -- doesn't really matter. you say marketer under reacting. was: i thought the story fascinating. it was about chief executive officers and other major european countries -- companies saying we are really concerned about greece. ,f greece leads the eurozone that could be a potential real problem for the economy that's already fragile. even just the concept of eurozone, you looked at spanish
yields over german yields last week rising to the highest in more than a year because people were concerned about contagion. people do feel they will probably come to a last-minute deal, but there's a lot of question marks about what the potential for contagion is. it may not be lehman style, most people say it's not, it could be a different style event though. on september 12, 2000 eight, there was an article about how money market funds were saying if lehman brothers to clear his bankruptcy, everything will be fine. i'm just saying, markets don't always get it right. sometimes it's hard to extrapolate out what exactly would happen. the moves areon, dramatic in most of the market. it is risk on because people have been expecting them to come to a deal. maybe the euro finance ministers are saying we are not going to risk it. to someoneg to cater
who is not dealing with us the way we want them to deal with us. or posting things on twitter. mark ina big question markets. people are saying what are we missing? olivia: is the u.s. treasury marketolivia: really thinking about it? investors are betting greece will stay in the euro. if they do leave, maybe that changes the timing? mica: this thing has dragged on so long that obviously people expect them to leave. if they were to leave, would anyone be surprised? lisa: i would. mike: i don't know how surprised i would be. investor, i would have protected myself in the event of an exit. hadstrategist at jpmorgan an interesting note, calling a sideshow. saying most of the obligations to greece is to the ecb and the
