The Greek Debt: What Creditors May Stand to Lose

Greece says it will run out of money at the end of the month if a deal with its creditors the European commission, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund cannot be reached.
The lack of an agreement before the IMF payment deadline of 30 June will not mean an automatic exit from the eurozone. If Greece were to default on the IMF and then also leave the currency union, pinning down the precise losses to creditors will not be a straightforward task.
Any calculation will need to not only consider the size of the Greek debt (roughly €320bn, which translates into 175% of its GDP) but also take into account possible contagion – a market panic spreading to other countries – and the amount Greece chooses to not pay.
