However, the question is, is the bailout really helping Greece long term? I think not.
And what exactly was the alternative??? And no the lets print Drachma and everything will be fine is not a solution, if for no other reason than they are unable to earn foreign currency to pay for things as basic as medical supplies!!!

Without the bailout the situation in Greece would be far worse, but the solution, the need to make massive changes to the economy and the political structure would be exactly the same.

It comes down to a question of just how much misery you want to see visited on the Greek people.
