Greece's Debt Crisis

Bankers Guru
Greece, the weak link in the eurozone, is inching closer to defaulting on its debt. If the country goes bankrupt or decides to leave the 19-nation eurozone, the situation could create instability in the region and reverberate around the globe. here is a lowdown on the current crisis. 

What's the latest?

The European Central Bank said that it would not expand the emergency loan program that has been propping up Greek banks in recent weeks. But at the same time, the bank did not cut off support entirely, giving the Greek government some extra flexibility in the coming days.

Meanwhile in Greece, the Parliament approved a request from Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras for a public referendum on Greece's debt negotiations, to be held on 05th July 2015. Tsipras said he was calling the referendum because Greece's creditors — the International Monetary Fund, the European Central Bank and the eurozone countries had refused to negotiate in good faith and present a fair compromise.

The approval came after eurozone finance ministers rejected Greece's request to extend its existing bailout program past a deadline on 30th June 2015.

How did Greece get to this point?

Greece became the epicenter of Europe's debt crisis after Wall Street imploded in 2008. With global financial markets still reeling, Greece announced in October 2009 that it had been understating its deficit figures for years, raising alarms about the soundness of Greek finances. Suddenly, Greece was shut out from borrowing in the financial markets. By the spring of 2010, it was veering toward bankruptcy, which threatened to set off a new financial crisis.

To avert calamity, the so-called troika: the IMF, the European Central Bank and the European Commission issued the first of two international bailouts for Greece, which would eventually total more than 240 billion euros, or about $264 billion at today's exchange rates.

The bailouts came with conditions. Lenders imposed harsh austerity terms, requiring deep budget cuts and steep tax increases.

They also required Greece to overhaul its economy by streamlining the government, ending tax evasion and making Greece an easier place to do business.

Why do Greece and Europe disagree?

With Greece nearly bankrupt, the government struck a deal with European officials on Feb. 20 to extend the bailout program for at least four months and give Athens €7 billion in funds, if Tsipras made structural changes. But creditors say the plans Greece has submitted fall short, and they accuse Tsipras of trying to roll back the austerity measures unilaterally. 

Greece needs a deal to keep paying its creditors and to finance government operations. Athens seems to be betting that its creditors will want to reach a compromise to avoid the huge unknowns that could arise if Greece defaults or possibly leaves the euro.

If Greece has received billions in bailouts, why is there still a crisis?

The money was supposed to buy Greece time to stabilize its finances and quell market fears that the euro union itself could break up.

While it has helped, Greece's economic problems haven't gone away. The economy has shrunk by a quarter in five years, and unemployment is above 25 percent. The bailout money mainly goes toward paying off Greece's international loans, rather than making its way into the economy.

And the government still has a staggering debt load that it cannot begin to pay down unless a recovery takes hold. Many economists, and many Greeks, blame the austerity measures for much of the country's continuing problems.

The leftist Syriza party rode to power this year promising to renegotiate the bailout' Tsipras said that austerity had created a "humanitarian crisis" in Greece. But the country's exasperated creditors, especially Germany, blame Athens for failing to conduct the economic overhauls required under its bailout. They don't want to change the rules for Greece.

As the debate rages, the only thing everyone agrees on is that Greece is yet again running out of money and fast.

If things are so bad, shouldn't Greece just leave the eurozone?

At the height of the debt crisis a few years ago, many experts worried that Greece's problems would spill over into the rest of the world. If Greece defaulted on its debt and exited the eurozone, it could create global financial shocks bigger than the collapse of Lehman Brothers.

Debt in the European Union

Some people argue that if Greece were to leave the currency union now, it wouldn't be such a catastrophe. 

Europe has put up safeguards to limit the financial contagion, in an effort to keep the problems from spreading to other countries. Greece, just a tiny part of the eurozone economy, could regain financial autonomy with its own economy, these people contend and the eurozone would actually be better off without a country that seems to constantly need its neighbors' support.
Others say that's too simplistic a view. Despite the frustration of endless negotiations, European political leaders see a united Europe as an imperative. 

At the same time, they still haven't fixed some of the biggest shortcomings of the eurozone's structure by creating a more federal-style system of transferring money as needed among members; the way the United States does among its various states. 

They also worry that if Greece were to default and leave the eurozone, it could ignite turmoil in the financial markets that might stall the budding recovery in Europe and impede the United States' rebound.

What happens next?

Tsipras has said he doesn't want to take Greece out of the euro currency union. Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany, Europe's paymaster, says the eurozone must stay together but not at any cost.
Right now, Greece must work out a deal to get some of the €7 billion to meet looming debt payments. It also has billions more in additional payments coming due later this year to the IMF and the European Central Bank. As a result, Greece might need to try securing yet another multibillion-euro bailout package its third since 2010.

Next week's referendum could test whether Greek citizens want to stay in the eurozone. New elections could also be held if Greece's financial situation worsens. Or Greece could test the willingness of Russia or China to help should talks with Europe falter.

The heavy betting is that Greece and Europe will find a way to muddle through the mess yet again even if many people might be quietly drawing up emergency plans.

Know Your Organization - ITTO

Bankers Guru
The International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO) is an intergovernmental organization that promotes conservation of tropical forest resources and their sustainable management, use and trade.

The organization was established under the International Tropical Timber Agreement (ITTA), which was sponsored by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development and was ratified in 1985. Its mandate was renewed by the International Tropical Timber Agreement, 1994 and again by the International Tropical Timber Agreement, 2006, which aims to promote sustainable management and legal harvesting of forests that produce tropical timber, and to promote expansion and diversification of international trade in timber from these forests.

The governing body is the International Tropical Timber Council (ITTC). Half the votes on the ITTC are assigned to producing countries and half to consumers. Within each block, votes are assigned based on market share.

The ITTO was at first primarily a commodity organization, regulating the international trade in tropical timber. The original mandate mentioned conservation but did not give any details. In 1990 the ITTC proposed that by 2000 all exports of tropical timber would come from sustainably managed sources, and this goal was adopted. In 1987 the ITTO commissioned the Harvard Institute for International Development to prepare a review of current knowledge of multiple-use management of tropical forests. Of interest was the potential for non-timber forest products and services that could assist in sustaining the forests. HIID completed the study in 1988 and issued updated versions in 1990 and 1992.
