brussels which continued well into the night among other measures the eurozone and the i.m.f. will give the country another one hundred billion euro in rescue learns there's also an agreement on expanding the bailout one to one trillion europe all that follows immense pressure on the leaders after multiple delays in anti crisis action promises of a solution marshall and other news of global investment strategist at madison street partners says the european financial system is to blame for the current turmoil. it's fundamentally unfair look for the problem of the whole. order of the eurozone economy is one of financial architecture you've got to go back to this flawed financial architecture would start with with the currency union without a fiscal union but we were all told one ball was the same as another whether it be italian bond or german born and now effectively the rules of the games have been changed in the bank has been forced to take this haircut in effect they are being
1:08 am
punished for the wrong thing the response has been completely the wrong way around the problem is fundamentally one of national sovereignty is trading at very distressed levels because these countries are all perceived to be insolvent it's not just greece it'll move on to portugal italy spain and maybe ultimately france and germany so you have to first deal with the problem of national solvency and the way you do that is by creating a mechanism whereby all the bonds are deemed to be money good and you can only do that by involving the european central bank once you deal with the national solvency problem you won't have this issue of the distressed bonds and therefore you won't be needing the substantial haircut and you won't need the substantial banking recapitalization the banking recapitalization in any case will create a huge debt deflation spiral because all the banks they will want to raise money at these prices and try to shed assets and if they do it all once it will create an even bigger economic disaster. where the crisis plan is effective or not for the austerity hit the greek people any help history of long layoff many are finding new

ways to survive in hard times. that time is money for a country where cash is now in short supply time is taken on a whole different value in the time bank or exchange want to services and sometimes they give a painting lessons for free but they take your for free also somebody else is teaching yoga banks just one of the growing number of scientists working alternatives that are providing people. another way to cope with the tough economic conditions services can include anything from language classes to babysitting all home cooked meals huge huge everything we do without money like looking after people are making things by ourselves for a country in crisis building social unity can prevail extremely hard crisis is a terrible thing it creates fear it divides people from public sector workers to
1:10 am
from private sector workers it divides richer workers to poor workers immigrant workers from home workers and that's a terrible thing. for the past networks have been a great way of bringing together large groups of people the populous slogan here in greece now is no one's alone in the crisis organizations are arranging swap shops to exchange clothes and one town in greece is even started its own bartie currency we still have the memory of. agricultural society in greece where people used to do things together like they would do the olive tree of my family this week and then next week with the olive trees of your family and then the next week of the other neighbor so they would exchange services and the like that nicky gives me and her friend alexander he's also a member of the time bank and lesson one of the free services she provides and in exchange alexander helps out with the gardening so the time is repaid it's an

amazing way. of receiving finally by giving to the other. as many greeks struggle with wage cuts tax increases and with unemployment in the country now cripplingly high there's been huge interest in the time banks and bars and networks places in aladdin's cave of arts and materials it's no wonder really that this idea of swapping gets in services has proven so popular. building solidarity is a time when the economic situation is extremely uncertain. networks won't solve greece's financial problems they do provide a massive amount to support the participants it's not to respond to you cannot make crisis in the sense that it's going to overturn the guard but it's giving support. to both. terrible economic policies that are being hosed by the troika it's giving
1:12 am
people support to feel that they can do something. with the tough economic times leaving many greeks feeling worthless there is real value in projects like the time bank with the greek government drowning in debt these creative solutions are offering any support but encouragement to the people here which at a time of deep recession proofing priceless commodities so i think athens. later today max keiser and his co-host stacey herbert's look closely at the way greeks are venting their anger at the economic plight. is greece a failed state and i want to answer that from right granny in this image here you see right granny well i think she's saying no greece is not a failed state it's an occupied state because they're not asking this question about iceland are they. now because iceland stood up to the bankers whereas.
1:13 am
subjugated by the tyranny of the bankers and this granny here throwing rocks the police she's a good for what the cops store for them and the politicians agree says the things heat up in greece hopefully the banks in greece will completely collapse and this will be the only saving grace for sovereignty. the family of colonel gadhafi is preparing to sue nato for the airstrike on his convoy that led to his violent death at the hands of m.t.c. fighters the family lawyer said that the alliances actions were clearly aimed at overthrowing the colonel and not protecting civilians meanwhile even with gadhafi gone the country's future looks far from secure from tripoli and he said no way since this report. the war is over but the weapons are fully
1:14 am
loaded. human rights watch has expressed grave concern about leftover arms in libya their number one fear warehouses thought to hold ground to air missiles which could in the wrong hands take down passenger aircraft it's through mate so our nato allies in the region which these weapons have been flooding libya and also libya is quite country anyway the population has has quite a lot of light weapons in his possession and those light weapons are becoming a heavy burden on the national transitional council now relying on an army of former rebels for security that would try to control the bends and we check if there is somebody has when we ask him if he has to go towards a shooting or this we are not. the. checkpoints have been set up across tripoli to check that those carrying weapons have proper documentation and
1:15 am
those who do have the paperwork are being called on by the national transition committee to return their arms the question now what if they don't and what does that mean for pulse gadhafi libya and its stability and now as you can see is being secured here everything is under control and the only one would think that we will make some major news of how to give back the weapons but we see something very different i ask this head commander what the plan is to disarm the population. i swear i don't know if you look. at the home of the c.b.i. mad. at a makeshift arms collection center that covers one neighborhood in the capital we are shown this. to these are the weapons people brought to me today not many. walk down one block in tripoli and you'll see twice as any firearms. do you know how
1:16 am
many weapons there are in libya i tend to slaughter to have inside leave yeah i think everybody have a weapon some think the front of arms in the country could spell disaster ahead in the vacuum after gadaffi impulse through fault chaos as groups fight out of this just battles to power. what you have now in libya is schools of armed factions who have no respect for each other and who have no respect for may to actually either they've opportunistically used mate or to achieve some aims and nato has been foolish enough to go along with this so i think what we're going to see now is an intensification of the civil war between increasingly the factions which have overthrown with the gadhafi regime with many libyans now yet ready to say a farewell to arms at the end to see which could only be daffy with nato how is now asking the alliance to continue its mission
