Bruederle Sees Greek Euro Exit Controllable, Handelsblatt Says

A Greek exit from the euro would be “controllable” though expensive, Handelsblatt cited Rainer Bruederle, floor chief of the Free Democratic Party, as saying.

“Unlike two years ago, the euro zone would be rather able to cope with a Greek exit,” the newspaper quoted Bruederle as saying, according to the e-mailed preview of an article to be published tomorrow.

Bruederle rejected concessions to win support from the opposition Social Democrats for the European Stability Mechanism, Handelsblatt reported. “We are not at a bazaar,” the newspaper quoted him as saying.
