6:18 am
the differences. >> we are talking about sovereign debt versus a corporation going out of business. they are different initially because typically a country doesn't go out of business or cease to exist when it stops paying the debt. the default process is simply that if a country stops a payment or principal payment, that's considered default. often it's a political decision. the easiest way to look at it, a company going into a default situation typically has nothing left. they don't have the ability to repay. a country has the ability to repay but chooses not to for political reasons or economic reasons. it's more of a choice factor versus an absolute factor with the company. >> grease-- greece is playing a big role.
