Editor's choice of the week
Dear member, These are fascinating times for the current eurozone crisis - some experts say that zero risk weights would have to be removed for euro nations in the Basel Accord.

The reall question is: are we better off with one set of banking regulations for all countries? Or would economies be better off if each nation decides its own standard for risk weighting of asset classes and capital requirements? Yesterday it was announced the new bail-out plan for Greece. It will add another €109 billion ($157 billion) in official help to the first bail-out, worth €110 billion, which is still being disbursed. Moreover, interest rates on new lending from the European Financial Stability Facility (EFSF), the euro area’s rescue fund, will be more relaxed (interest rate roughly 3.5%) while the maturity of the loans will be doubled from the current 7.5 years to 15 years. On top of this, private-sector holders of Greek government bonds will contribute a net €37 billion.

By the way if you got a frog for a picture, hurry up and replace it!
