CITY VIEWS: ARE YOU MORE OR LESS OPTIMISTIC ABOUT THE EUROZONE SOLVING ITS DEBT CRISIS THIS WEEK?

RYAN LEHMANN | BLOOMBERG
“Yes, I’m hopeful, because it looks as if things are moving along and they are under pressure to do something. I think since the expectancy is there, that it will be solved.”

DEEPAK ARORA | FOX WILLIAMS
“They have had so many meetings where nothing was solved, that I am not any more optimistic. If even Commerzbank could be nationalised, I don’t have much hope for all of the Eurozone.”

ED NEWMAN | GRANT THORNTON
“I was so pessimistic a week ago, I guess you could say I’m optimistic this week. There are just so many things they have to get right; it is still an incredible hurdle. But we are close to the summit and the markets are up.”
