6:21 am
life in america during the five year period from two thousand and five to twenty ten a total net of one point four million mexicans immigrated to the united states down by more than half from the three million who had done so and the five year period nine hundred ninety five to two thousand mexicans that come here to the u.s. to take jobs far worse than labor it is whites right the ranks because the jobs that. we feasted so this trying to limit the range raises the question just well still and. ron gotcha is a teacher and a community organizer believes those sharp downward trend can lead through more drastic consequences if they leave the crisis in the united states and be far greater than it is now because you know mexican have to go to the grocery store they have to buy a bike like anybody else so that's a lot of buying power we're talking about billions of dollars of buying power that

6:23 am
japan but over in europe this is a positive sentiment has already made a way to pass remember them and fears over the political dead. in greece and the fact that greece might actually leave the euro zone so therefore we're seeing selling continue into thursday and actually economist every him around barry says that the chances are that greece will leave the euro zone they're pretty high and that could cause a shock wave which is which will have a more a bigger impact than deep. the lehman brothers in two thousand and eight. it's a two thirds chance at least to greece will leave either this year or next then we could we could know the answer really quite soon the primary concern is about exit contagion that is the concern that greece will not be the only country that would exit in its footsteps would follow other vulnerable countries including say portugal ireland or of course italy or spain and in that case i think the financial system in europe but also elsewhere will be under very heavy strains and another
6:24 am
much greater strain than was the case in the aftermath of lehman. having seen those moderate losses over in europe just take a look at this over here the r.t.s. and the my six down more than two and a half percent with my sex coming below the thirteen hundred psychologically important market for the first time in two years so really ladies and gentlemen we're seeing a huge slump and it's definitely a bear market in russia we haven't seen a rebound in weeks now just take a look at towards moving the my saxon's burbank the most liquid stock on the market the flagship store is down almost four percent seven continent the supermarket chain his down one point nine percent despite reporting profits in the first quarter almost double and their floor is a bit better than the market down just half a percent after promising that twenty percent of its net profits would go to a dividend. over on the currencies market the ruble continues to decline against
