Goldman’s Hatzius Warns Against Greek Euro Exit, Welt Reports

May 30 (Bloomberg) -- Goldman Sachs Group Inc. chief economist Jan Hatzius warned against Greece exiting the euro as depositors in other countries might pull funds from banks on concern their nation could leave the common currency, Die Welt reported.
