The miraculous story of Iceland – WaPo
You just have to get the big question right—what currency should I use?—and you'll have a decent enough recovery. The right monetary policy, in other words, can cover up a lot of mistakes. The question now is what Greece thinks of this.

Leaving the euro would be a much better option for Greece. But politics points in one direction, economics in another
Finland Economic Outlook: Recovery will have to wait – Nordea
2015 will be the fourth consecutive year without growth in the Finnish economy. The economy has again been in a slight decline since last fall, so the pick-up in exports during this year will not be enough to turn growth positive. The growth forecasts for this year and the next have been revised downwards. GDP is expected to contract 0.2% in 2015 and grow 1.0% in 2016.

Euro area: Contagion or just volatility? – Nordea
Greece-related worries have come back to haunt the markets, and this time the worries look much more real than has been the case in general recently. Bond market spreads have seen huge volatility, and this volatility has not been limited to the Periphery. The volatility will no doubt continue in the coming days and weeks, but another sovereign debt crisis remains only a distant possibility. The Euro area has the tools to prevent another explosion in bond yields, even in the case of a Grexit.

Morning Markets – TF
The big news is never the only news, and today's FOMC meeting must contend with Greek tensions, UK jobless data and a New Zealand GDP update for investor attention. Who are we kidding, though? Barring a last-minute meltdown on the part of, say, Alexis Tsipras (or UK employment?), the Fed remains the one to watch.

FX Update – TF
The market is expecting very little from tonight’s FOMC, meaning that it will be very easy to surprise this market, especially on the hawkish side. Still, it is more likely that the reaction function will be dominated by sentiment rather than any new rhetorical hints from Yellen and company.
From the Floor – TF
Greece may shout for attention in the way that only Greece can, but really, all eyes tonight are on the FOMC and what sort of timeline it may tentatively hint at for that much-talked about rate hike.
