Greenspan said he expects the stock market slide to continue Monday in the wake of a decision by credit rating agency Standard & Poor's to downgrade the U.S. credit rating. He said it will take time for the markets to bottom out, but he said he sees no risk in investing in the United States and says that S&P's downgrade won't change that. (AP Photo/NBC News, William B.
