With the European Financial Stability Facility set to increase to $1.4 trillion, it marks a significant move forward to strengthen the safety net in place for Europe's most troubled countries. Private bondholders of Greek debt are settling at a 50% haircut as another $180 billion in fresh aid is set to arrive, enabling banks to recapitalize at a healthy 9% reserve. Overall, these measures will bring Greece's debt burden down to 120% of GDP by 2020. An important consideration is political commitment to this road map.
