Euro summit: not as long as I live?

So, under huge pressure from Italy, Spain and France, German Chancellor Merkel capitulated. Spain and Italy got the right to ask for money from the European funding mechanisms, the EFSF and the upcoming ESM, to recapitalise their banks and support their government bonds without having to enter a dreaded Troika programme of austerity that has already been imposed on Greece, Portugal and Ireland.

The crisis of the euro and the confusion on the left | money money money | Scoop.it
The Greek crisis is reaching a decisive turning point. In the run up to the recent elections many reassurances were made, but everyone knows that what is actually being prepared is a plan for an exit from the euro in an attempt to minimize the consequences and then to put the blame for this on the "irresponsible" Greeks.

The Euro In Crisis, Part I: All the Kings, Their Horses, and Their Horses' Horses - Blogcritics.org (blog) | money money money | Scoop.it

"The Eurozone is in crisis. Since the onset of the sovereign debt debacle in 2008, economic conditions in nearly all of its member states have grown worse as pro-austerity economic policies have all but silenced prospects for renewed growth. Of the seventeen nations that use the Euro, the economies of five are in danger of defaulting on their debts and two have already had their financial sectors bailed out at least once already. Seven have seen their sovereign credit ratings lowered to near non-investment grade and eleven have unemployment rates at or near 10 percent."

The Great Global Bargain Hunt - Gulf Times

The Great Global Bargain Hunt - Gulf Times | money money money | Scoop.it
Few recent elections have grabbed world attention in the way that Greece’s vote on June 17 did. Now that the centre-right New Democracy, which finished first, has formed a coalition government with the centre-left PASOK and the Democratic Left, the key issue for Prime Minister Antonis Samaras’s administration is whether it can implement the austerity measures agreed with Greece’s eurozone partners in exchange for continued support from the International Monetary Fund and the European Union.

17 Reasons To Be EXTREMELY Concerned About The Second Half ... | money money money | Scoop.it
What is the second half of 2012 going to bring? Are things going to get even worse than they are right now? Unfortunately, that appears more likely with each passing day. I will admit that I am extremely concerned about the second half of 2012. Historically, a financial crisis is much more likely to begin in the fall than during any other season of the year.
