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.

Bloomberg article asks and answers a list of questions: 1. Is the economy strong enough to exit the bailout smoothly? 2. Why did Greece need so many bailouts? 3. What has Greece done to address its budget problems? 4. What else does Greece need to do? - etc., there are several more points and a depressing "bad loan" chart that puts "Greece is in a league of it's own" with a 46.5% non-performing loan rate.

"...Regardless of any agreement with our creditors for public debt reduction, supervision will continue ... the general situation has not improved. Public debt is greater than it was in 2010, whereas private individuals now owe more than 100 billion euros in delinquent debts to the tax office, another 100-or-so billion in overdue loans to banks, and more than 20 billion in overdue fees to social security funds. After eight years of bailout agreements, reforms and austerity, we still don’t know when and how our country will stand on its feet.
