    “On July 21, when Greece’s second rescue package was agreed, the EFSF was also bolstered from €250bn to €440bn and the terms of its operations broadened to make it more nimble. But, to provide a real firebreak, the EFSF needs about €2 trillion, analysts reckon – to cover Italy’s €1.8bn national debts and Spain’s €640bn. As it stands, the EFSF is woefully inadequate..”
