“The crisis in Greece could pose as big a risk to the global economy and financial markets as the collapse of Lehman Brothers did in September 2008”, said Julian Jessop, of Capital Economics.
He added: “It crystallises the worries about the dire state of the public finances in many countries in the same way that the collapse of Lehmans raised fears of a domino effect throughout the financial system.” Lee Hardman, a currency strategist at Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, said: “There is evidence of contagion from Greece. The UK’s fiscal position is dire and I think the market is selling sterling on the back of that today.”
