Grecia: No secondo salvataggio, No Euro | Philadelphia Inquirer | 2012-01-04

ATENE, Grecia – Greece’s government warned Tuesday that the debt-crippled country would have to ditch the euro if it failed to complete the details of its second, $169 billion international bailout and that more austerity measures may need to be implemented.

A key component of the package, which was agreed to in October, is that Greece has to persuade its private creditors such as banks and investment firms to take a steep hit on the value of their holdings of Greek debt. Greece has the highest debt burden relative to the size of its economy in the whole of the 17-nation eurozone and the write-down will help get it down to more manageable, though still high, livelli.

Greek government spokesman Pantelis Kapsis said that negotiations in the next three or four months with international debt monitors woulddetermine everything,” including whether Greece escapes a disastrous bankruptcy.

Greece is being kept afloat by a $142 billion international bailout agreed to in May 2010, after investors shocked by the country’s huge budget deficit and debt mountain demanded sky-high interest rates to continue buying Greek bonds.

Un pacchetto di salvataggio supplementare è stato concordato nel mese di ottobre, dopo che è diventato chiaro che il primo lotto di fondi non sarebbe sufficiente, ma questo accordo deve ancora essere completato.

Chiarire i dettagli del piano di salvataggio è il compito principale del governo di coalizione guidato dall'ex banchiere centrale Lucas Papademos, mandato di cui a breve si prevede che scadrà ai primi di aprile.

“Questo accordo di prestito famosa deve essere firmato, altrimenti siamo al di fuori dei mercati, fuori dall'euro, e le cose diventeranno molto peggio,” Kapsis ha detto televisione privata Skai.

In cambio la sua prima serie di prestiti di salvataggio dai suoi partner europei e del Fondo monetario internazionale, La Grecia ha dovuto adottare misure di austerità profondamente risentita per contenere il deficit di bilancio – impostato per colpire almeno 9 per cento del PIL 2011 nonostante i ripetuti tagli alla spesa e aumenti delle tasse.

Kapsis said further cutbacks, possibly including new taxes, might be required to address a revenue shortfall. “I . . . don’t believe it is easy to impose new taxes, but what does cutting spending mean? To close down the public sector?”

Getting final approval of the new bailout has been delayed because talks with Greece’s private creditors over a huge bond swap, designed to cut Greece’s debt by some 100 € 1000000000 (circa $130 miliardo), have dragged.

While representatives of banks and insurance funds that hold a lot of Greek debt tentatively agreed in October to cut the face value of their holdings of Greek bonds by 50 per cento, they have so far failed to agree on crucial details of the deal.
