It's Official- Greek Debtor In Possession Loan Now €100-125 Billion; US Contribution To Greek Bailout: At Least $7 Billion

Tyler Durden's picture

It's Official: Greek Bailout Expanded To €100-€120 billion over three years (40 billion a year) according to Strauss-Khan, which would eliminate Greek funding needs for the next 3 years via a primed DIP funded by Europe and the US. German contribution to be no less than €25 billion. IMF role will likely be at least €25 billion if not more. At about 20% US contribution to the IMF, the US taxpayers just got hit with a $7 billion bailout fee to make sure French and German banks don't have to Mark-to-Bankruptcy their Greek exposure. This is definitely not a done deal: Germany's SPD says they will not vote for the aid, which according to preliminary rumors will make all eurozone member states subordinate creditors to the new "DIP" facility. All those buying this rally are assuming that Germans will go quietly with the new proposal even though they threw up all over the old "only" €10 billion demand. Oh, and wait until Greeks realize what the "austerity" terms of the new IMF package are. We are sure the Greek airforce will just call in sick for the rest of the century at that point.

What is this plan #10?


Yeah, it's official until you don't hear anything for a few days.

Time to start planning Portugal because Greece is already toast.

Before responding to the virtually ubiquitous ZH poster "HarryWanger", please be aware of just whom and what you are dealing with in this person:

His real name is James Kostorhyz, and he is here posing as a troll in dishonesty and in disregard for the fundamental purposes of this forum. He is NOT posting here in good faith, but is purposely antagonizing those with independent, anti-establishment views and opinions for his own selfish and cynical purposes, as part of a study on "the psychology of permabears". 

He believes that anyone who opposes the current widespread fraud, corruption and rampant lies within our societies and governments are "utopian" and unrealistic, pollyannish dreamers.

And for those ZeroHedgers who are advocates of sound money backed by gold, this bankster shill is already out there with one of the most disingenuous, dishonest pieces of pro-establishment propaganda on the topic, expounding on how such financial integrity is "impossible", and merely "the rants of an ideological fringe":

Please do NOT respond to this reprehensible troll, here or anywhere else on ZeroHedge.  He is NOT here in good faith, and should be shunned!

I never understand why people get so mad at him, he is trading.   Eventually their will be no trade but until then "party away" Garth. 

Eventually there will be less and less chairs in the game of musical chairs, until everyone is without a chair.

I think this guy used to hang around over at the Daily Reckoning. Used the same name Harry along with the same American flag.

Would stalk Bill Bonner and lambast him every time he even dared mention that there was a possibility the economy was in a depression.

When ever there was a down period in the market he would disappear, only to reapper when the market shot back up and make snide remarks on Bill Bonners articles and publish ridiculous comments about how the economoy was bouncing back because the market bounced back that day.

His favorite ploy was to ridicule Bill Bonner on days the market was up, but you never saw him post comments on down days like yesterday.

I'm amazed he hasn't taken Tyler to task for Tyler's pessimistic attitude toward the economy, the stock markets, the SEC, the Federal Reserve, the Vampire Squid, the Obama administration, pure unadulterated evil, and the corrupt politicians running this serfdom.

He's nothing more than a pollyanna cheerleading the supposedly resurging economy and markets and he probably originates right out of Cass Sunsteins propaganda war room, eh Comrade Goebbles.

Mako's picture

Well, all I am saying is cycles within cycles so you will be able to trade until there is no trade.  

If he is saying there is a such thing as an infinite up cycle well on that I would say he is a retard.  

He is free to trade while the credit market is slowly collapsing.   I for one expected huge bounces and huge falls.

I don't think so, unless the trading day ends at 10:00am today.

I have noticed since the fall of 2008, when our fiat money syetem started to unravel, that certain people I knew would argue vehemently against my explanations of the unfolding crisis.

It seemed strange at the time.  Several different unrelated people would become very angry during discussions about the inherent flaws in our fiat money.  This wasn't a normal disagreement about theory when someone would refute your argument with their views and then ignore you.  This was serious anger.

I have finally come to the conclusion that people who place their trust in the money systems of this world are actually very scared and that fear sometimes reveals itself as anger. 

It is much better in the long run to seek the truth and face reality than to get mad at the truth.

The lie is their comfortable blanket... their Snuggie if you will.

They will defend it until the end.  If everyone believed what you did, the system would crease to exist this second.


Morpheus : You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to

be unplugged. And many of them are so inert, so hopelessly

dependant on the system, that they will fight to protect it.

Were you listening to me, Neo? Or were you looking at the

woman in the red dress?


Morpheus : No. It's another program, designed to teach you one thing :

If you are not one of us, you are one of them.

Neo looks at the frozen agent.

Doesn't the Doche believe you can just let the bad ones go under and the rest will just some how magically survive? 

They don't call them a death spiral for nothing.

trav7777's picture

Yep...seems to believe we can just "default" and everything will be fine.

The basis of all negative emotions is fear. Fear = anger

Mako's picture

Yeah but not all things are emotion, sometimes they are facts that people interupt as emotion.


trav7777's picture

So if my kids spill kool aid all over the couch, I am actually afraid???  Learn somethin new every day around here

SteveNYC's picture

Good trick question. Depends, if it makes you so angry you beat your kid, it quickly turns to fear when child services rocks up at the door.

A common bond market for eurozone countries would solve most of the problems Europe currently face, yields spread, contagions risks etc

heyligen's picture

would give Greece, Spain, Italy the keys for further milking unsuspecting creditors

kaiten's picture

Sure, but if the common bond market comes with Stability Pact reform (automatic penalties for extensive deficits, better data verifying, kick-out possibility for laggards etc), than, in medium term, eurozone would become structuraly healthier and probably also slimmer (without some current southern countries)

yabs's picture

I'm confused by why you always say the money in the IMF comes from US taxpayers
I thought ALL banks create loans out of thin air
thus maybe the us tax payer is only on the line when the loan defaults or am I missing something?

kaiten's picture

US contributes 17% of IMF funds, so of course it´s nonsense to claim that IMF bailout equals US bailout. Actually, european countries contribute more than the US.

About time someone mentioned this on ZH

FINALLY I am starting to hear about Greece, etc. here in Italy.  I guess they now know that for awhile at least they get to help Greece...

Why should US taxpayers give even a single penny to Grease? The Frog banks shouold take it in the shorts. Its a Euro"peon" Union - let them unite and hold hands as they jump off the cliff. I shoose not to particpate.

AnAnonymous's picture

US taxpayers? European tax payers? By what miracle?

I am certain that somebody  can manage to show that US/European tax payers money is involved in some sort of way but presenting US/European tax money in that obvious way is fraudulous.


taraxias's picture


You are not missing a thing.

Stop saying it's the US taxpayer. It's Uncle Ben's printing press.

Great point!  Keep those computers chugging and keep the free money coming!

AnAnonymous's picture

Providing electricity to keep up computers is one of the few  ways US tax payers money is involved in the business.

Maybe even not. Maybe the bill is paid with emitted credits.

There will be a lot of Californians asking why they cannot get a similar deal.

The 50 states already got that deal.  It was the 787B stimulus

Do we wake up one day when "fiat currency" is declared worthless? Is that how this ends? Otherwise, I see no sign of resolution and we keep playing this "YO YO CHARADE".

Acrylicist's picture

It ends for a lot of people when fiat money doesn't buy enough oil to keep all of them fed.  They'll work very hard to keep it from becoming worthless, but it may not be worth "enough."


rubearish10's picture

Then, "Blood on the Streets".  

taraxias's picture

Bingo, give this man a cigar. Until fiat currencies are recognized as worthless this charade will continue. All else is noise.

never declared, but when you are using a wheelbarrow of cash for a loaf of bread, its pretty much dead.

Whizbang's picture

there aren't going to be any austerity measures, the whole thing was a sham. They will spend the money until it is gone, and the same thing will repeat itself in twenty years, long after anyone remembers that this all happened before.

As soon as it looked like that banks might go down, the bailouts were made. because of the derivitives web, no major international banks will be allowed to fail. EVER. I hope you all made a killing selling CDS into the slide.

The united states has decided it will bail out the world at 6% interest on money we borrow from china at 1.4%. I'll only say it once. Told ya so.
