22.52 The Euro Group has gone back to work after a 10-minute break.

22.55 Eurozone ministers discuss nominal private sector loss on Greek bonds of at least 53.5pc, rather than initial 50pc.

23.22 The FT is reporting that the worst case scenario would see Greece needing a €245bn bailout, up from €136bn.

"According to diplomats close to the talks, ministers meeting in Brussels tonight to decide on a E130 billion ($159bn) loan package may require a delay to the Greek election due in April so the nation's unelected technocratic government can implement harsher austerity measures."

Very much so, all efforts now it seems, is for the creditors to be made good prior to any proverbial hitting the fan.
These bailouts have only given the Greek government enough money to meet the interest payments on the amount in the previous bailouts.
They keep upping the credit card limit, in other words just to be able to borrow to pay next months interest payment.

58 seconds to 4 minutes in, for non-Greek speakers.

How Greece Could Take Down Wall Street WEB OF DEBT BLOG

"there is one bit of bad behavior that Uncle Sam himself does not have the funds to underwrite: the $32 trillion market in credit default swaps (CDS). Thirty-two trillion dollars is more than twice the U.S. GDP and more than twice the national debt. "


"The money made by selling these derivatives is directly responsible for the huge profits and bonuses we now see on Wall Street. The money masters have reaped obscene profits from this scheme, but now they live in fear that it will all unravel and the gravy train will end. What these banks have done is to leverage the system to such an extreme, that the entire house of cards is threatened by a small country of only 11 million people. Greece could bring the entire world economy down. If a default was declared, the resulting payouts would start a chain reaction that would cause widespread worldwide bank failures, making the Lehman collapse look small by comparison."
