"...Greece doesn’t have a hope of growing fast enough to work off its unsustainable debt pile of 180% of GDP. This package has alleviated but not solved the problem; the debt burden has just been pushed “further into the future”. At some stage, however, “either a managed haircut or a disorderly default seem inevitable”.

How Alexis Tsipras went from being the Greek Corbyn to the EU's poster boy - UK Independent

"...Both the left and right denounced the iniquities of German politicians who didn’t feel able to tell their voters to hand over money to a Greece where the nation’s biggest industry, the ship owners, paid no tax; where the country’s biggest land owner, the Church, paid no tax; where trade unions copied the worst of British industrial relations practices that helped destroy Labour in the 1970s and where politicians of the left and right had taken the avalanche of cheap euros that flooded into Greece after 2000 and used them to buy votes. Like Emmanuel Macron in France or Pedro Sanchez, who has just ousted a corrupt centre-right government party in Spain, Tsipras and his Syriza party soaked up votes to displace the alternating clientelist Pasok and New Democracy parties."

Greece's Deal Leaves Too Much to Chance - Bloomberg

"...Greece will get an additional 8 billion euros ($9.3 billion) of breathing space, bringing the country’s total buffer to 24 billion euros. Germany, too, has relented: It has acquiesced to a 10-year extension of Greece’s debt maturities. None of this proves Greece can access the bond market in the same way as other European countries. Before this crunch meeting, Greece had planned to sell 4 billion euros in three and 10-year bonds this year. But May’s political turmoil in Italy put paid to the idea. With yields this high, it’s tough to see how the country can still issue.
