Debt restructuring the only option for EU

The EU is planning to top up its rescue fund and improve the quality of funding by way of reassuring the markets. These are cosmetics. They just won't work. The EU has to act collectively to get investors (creditors) to restructure. Either that or you will have serial defaults down the road.

Sovereign default is regarded as taboo, as something that countries must avoid at all costs. But countries that have defaulted haven't done badly at all. More on this in in ET column, Who says it doesn't pay to default?
