Interest rates in Greece have been rocky over the past few weeks in response to uncertainty surrounding Greek debt repayment and tense talks between the Greek government, Eurozone creditors, and the IMF.

The EU wants Greece to hit a surplus on its budget of 3.5% of GDP by 2018, but the IMF and the Greek government argue this is unachieveable and want a lower, 1.5% target.

With pessimism and optimism on all sides of the issue, the outcome will have implications on fiscal policy, employment, and stability throughout the Eurozone.
