Greek Prime Minister Papandreou has narrowly averted economic disaster as parliament agreed to the Greek austerity measures.
This will lead to a further bail-out of the country and fends off the risk of default. The austerity measures will see a €28 billion (£25 billion) package of tax increases but he now faces unrest in the country and like the mythological Greek king Sisyphus - condemned to roll a boulder up a hill only to have it roll back down again just before reaching the top - will have only survived one crisis in order to face the next.
Unless Greece can pull off the seemingly impossible and grow its way out of debt, which we doubt very much, the solvency issue will still have to be tackled.
However, delaying the inevitable is the best option.
