What Europe has done is created a bifurcated market for European sovereign debt where public holders will be treated differently than private holders creating two risk profiles depending on who is the buyer.

This will cause European yields to rise in the private market as everyone takes into account this new angle to credit risk.

Honestly, if you have to get this cute in crafting a solution then it is not a viable solution.

Nothing to do with the Troika, the ECB is not in position to exchange bonds with Greece as this would be direct monetary financing prohibited by statutes, same for the National central banks. EIB is different, it has de jure preferred creditor status by agreement with some countries to which it lends, it also owned by govt. some of them (EZ) funding Greece that would have to recap the EIB if it took (greek related) losses. It serves no purpose for the EIB to take losses and wouldn’t improve Greece position in any way since these losses would be charged back to Greece.

If all your doing is talking about one step in the process as if it is all the process there is, then you might well form the conclusion you have. I’m just saying, I think you’ve forgotten something…

If so, why did you make the comment that you made?

Which means, in effect, that it is not really getting a better deal than the private creditors. I don’t understand what possible reason the ECB has for first poisoining the market by forcing this de factro subordination and then not making any money out of the havoc it has wrought.

Would it be fair to say that the first time any of the CAC bonds was favoured over a non-CAC bond, the non-CACs would be de jure subordinate? It sounds like if they don’t get enough participation to force full participation then the Credit Event is just a matter of time.
