shelter in rescue schemes

,By and ,     ,     BERLIN |     Mon Jun 11, 2012 8:59am EDT       , ,BERLIN
(Reuters) - Angela Merkel's government was forced to defend an EU rescue for
Spain's indebted banks on Monday, with many Germans convinced their
generosity is being abused and skeptics warning that promising aid without
tough conditions sets a risky precedent.,,Aides to the German chancellor
justified the huge bailout on the grounds that the Spanish economy was not
in such dire shape that it required the kind of terms imposed on Greece, and
the aid would not be paid directly to Spanish banks but to the government."The
Spanish application comes from the state, the money will go to the state,
the state is liable and the state takes on the responsibility for the
stipulated conditions," Merkel's spokesman Steffen Seibert said."It sends
a good signal to the markets and Europe's partners that Europe is capable
of acting and now has the instruments at its disposal to deal with crisis
events that it did not have two or three years ago," said Seibert.But opinion
polls reflect growing fatigue among ordinary Germans at their country's role
as paymaster in the euro zone sovereign debt crisis.The scale of aid made
available to Spain - up to 100 billion euros ($125 billion) - appeared to
reinforce warnings from a small but growing band of German eurosceptics that
such bailouts have become a black hole for German taxpayers' hard-earned
cash.The mass-circulation Bild tabloid warned that, just as one bailout
package was not enough for Greece, "the Spanish patient will also need more
help than a one-off capital injection"."Is 100 billion euros for Spain really
going to be enough, Herr Schaeuble?" it asked the German finance minister.The
Mitteldeutsche Zeitung called it a costly "sedative" and highbrow Die Welt
expressed similar doubts that the Spanish aid would stop the rot in the euro
zone, despite a positive initial response in financial markets."Politicians
are once again showing such great optimism that they are closer to solving
the problems that the citizens, most of whom have already become skeptics,
are even more suspicious," Die Welt wrote.The Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung
said it was a dangerous precedent to drop Germany's insistence on aid only
with strict conditions. "Italy will also be happy to take money without tough
conditions and Ireland may demand that its conditions be softened
retroactively," it said."The Spanish case shows there is not much left of
the ‘German' principle to allow aid within the euro area only with the toughest
possible reform requirements."FIREWALLS "DON'T HELP"Finance Minister
Wolfgang Schaeuble mounted a campaign on television and radio to defend the
decision, pointing out that Spain's debt pile was smaller than Germany's but
its banking problem "had to be resolved with enough capital being added".With
the German parliament yet to give its approval to the Merkel-led fiscal
compact for budget discipline in Europe and to the permanent euro zone bailout
mechanism, Merkel's Christian Democrats (CDU) tried to avoid the Spanish deal
providing more fuel to the eurosceptics' arguments."The decisive issue here
is that the aid will not be given directly to Spanish banks but to a
restructuring fund commissioned by the state, and it is the Spanish state
that vouches for it," senior CDU MP Norbert Barthle told Reuters.He was
confident that talks with Germany's main centre-left opposition on growth
stimulus and job creation would enable the fiscal compact and European
Stability Mechanism (ESM) to get through parliament by the summer recess."We
would certainly need some parliamentary say in Germany over Spain's bailout
aid and I believe that we can get a majority for this," said Barthle,
reflecting confidence that the pro-euro Social Democrats and Greens would
support Spanish aid.This view is supported by Germany's main industry body,
the BDI, whose export-oriented members have benefited hugely from the weak
euro and low interest rates in the euro zone."The situation in Spain is
completely different to Greece - the economy is much stabler and it has
traditionally had a fairly low level of national debt," the BDI's Markus
Kerber told the Sueddeutsche Zeitung daily, justifying the move to resolve
a banking crisis "hanging like a millstone round's Spain's neck".Merkel is
squeezed uncomfortably between foreign partners like Washington, Paris and
London demanding more decisive action to save the euro and German voters who
are no longer convinced the single currency is better than the old Deutsche
mark, according to recent opinion polls.With recent indications that German
resilience to the crisis is weakening, the financier George Soros wrote in
France's Le Figaro that a weaker German economy would make it "even more
difficult for the Chancellor Angela Merkel to persuade the German public to
accept more responsibilities vis-à-vis Europe".The chancellor is unable to
convince even her own back benches, where the views of once fringe
eurosceptics like Frank Schaeffler of her junior coalition partners, the Free
Democrats (FDP), have become more widely reflected in the German media."It
is now clear that all these firewalls don't help, they merely create ever
greater incentives for countries to take shelter in rescue schemes, as is
the case with Spain," he said.(Additional reporting by and Michelle Martin;
Writing by Stephen Brown; Editing by ),VADUZ, June 11 (Reuters) – It
isn’t easy being a campaignerfor more democracy in the tiny
principality of Liechtenstein.Everybody knows everybody in this
arch-conservative state andthe subjects of the last monarchy in Europe with
any real powerdon’t like rocking the boat.,,Activists who want to end
the monarchy’s right to vetopopular referendums say they have received
threatening lettersand seen far-right vandals deface campaign posters with
Nazislogans like “Heil Fatherland” and “Democrats are the
death ofthe people”.,,Given the charged atmosphere in this state of
just 36,000,few dare to speak out against billionaire Prince Hans-Adam vonund
zu Liechtenstein, whose family has ruled the 160-sq-km(62-sq-mile)
principality since 1699 and is credited withturning a rural backwater into
a wealthy banking centre.,,But democracy campaigners still managed to gather
justenough signatures to call a referendum on the prince’s vetoright
– set for July 1 – by canvasing support in private andassuring
voters that their names would be kept secret.,,“People are worried
about being seen as against the prince,”Sigvard Wohlwend, a
communications consultant who is a spokesmanfor the campaign, told Reuters
in a cafe in the pedestrianisedmain street of the sleepy capital
Vaduz.,,Wohlwend said most people don’t want to reopen deepdivisions
over the monarchy that were triggered by aconstitutional crisis in
2003.,,“Today I argue with a politician and tomorrow I playfootball
with him and I’m probably also related to him somehow.That’s
village life,” said Wohlwend, who greeted severalpassersby during the
course of the interview.,By ,       ,    PARIS |      Mon Jun 11, 2012 7:28am
EDT     , ,PARIS (Reuters) - Euro zone finance ministers rushed Spain into
an EU-funded rescue for its debt-stricken banks to pre-empt the threat of
a bank run if Greece's debt crisis flares again but any respite for Madrid
and the euro may be short-lived.,,After weeks of insisting that Spain needed
no assistance to recapitalize lenders crippled by bad debts from a burst real
estate bubble, Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy was pushed into requesting an
aid package for fear of worse disaster to come, European officials involved
in the negotiations said.The 17-nation currency area agreed to lend Madrid
up to 100 billion euros ($125 billion) for its bank rescue fund, more than
an initial audit suggests it is likely to need, in an attempt to reassure
investors and erect a new firewall in the crisis.But the euro zone's latest
line in the sand, after bailouts for Greece, Ireland and Portugal since 2010,
could be swept away as early as next Sunday by angry Greek voters, rekindling
market turmoil that would hit Spain and Italy first.Rajoy said his reforms
had spared Spain a full rescue for its public debt but some analysts say the
bank aid may only be a prelude to an eventual bailout of the state.After less
than six months in office, the conservative premier is desperate to avoid
that stigma, while other European leaders are just as desperate to avoid the
cost, which would stretch the euro zone's rescue funds to the limit.Unicredit
chief economist Erik Nielsen said once the banks had been recapitalized, "they
have basically addressed the three key weaknesses: banks, regions, and
structural weaknesses".Others are less confident."The burden of
recapitalizing insolvent banks or loss-making acquisitions of solvent banks
will fall on Spanish citizens," said Karl Whelan, economist at University
College, Dublin. "For this reason, this weekend's announcement may well end
up shutting Spain out of the sovereign bond market."The euro zone's fourth
largest economy is beset by recession and mass unemployment and still has
a weight of national and regional debt to roll over later in the year, although
it has got through 58 percent of its borrowing for 2012.Moody's Investor
Service said last week the debts of euro area sovereigns dependent upon
official funding present "non-investment grade risks", prefiguring a likely
cut in Madrid's credit rating. Fitch Ratings slashed Spain by three notches
to BBB last week - just above junk status.The government still needs to
refinance 82.5 billion euros of debt maturing by the end of the year, with
a big hump at the end of October, and Spain's overspending regions have a
further 15.7 billion euros of debt maturing in the second half of 2012."We're
very close to junk bonds and we'll end up in the junk," Jose Carlos Diez,
chief economist at Intermoney in Madrid, said on Spanish television."In this
situation, the key is to look at the reaction of investors and see if capital
flight stops ... If the process doesn't stop, there will be more funding
problems and what we will see is a bailout that is starting small become a
big one."GREEK COUNTDOWNPolicymakers feared that what has been termed a "bank
jog" from Greece and Spain could turn into a stampede if anti-austerity
leftist parties opposed to the terms of Athens' EU/IMF bailout win the June
17 vote.If leftist SYRIZA party leader Alexis Tsipras tops the Greek poll
and forms a government, he has said he will tear up the bailout agreement
and demand a renegotiation. That would likely prompt the euro zone and the
IMF to suspend aid payments, leaving Greece to default by September, EU
sources say.Although Athens could not be legally forced to leave the euro
area, it would lose access to external funding for the government and the
banks, plunging it into chaos.Capital flight from Spanish banks has reached
euro lifetime record levels, with a net outflow of 66 billion euros in March,
the most recent month for which figures are available. That was before the
government's sudden, fumbled nationalization of teetering lender
Bankia.Despite Rajoy's denial that he was pressured, Germany and France,
Europe's two leading powers, as well as the European Central Bank, the
European Commission and the IMF leaned heavily on Madrid to request aid before
the Greek general election.A senior German official said Berlin had warned
the Spanish government if it did not seek help for the banks now, it risked
having to apply for a full-fledged country bailout later."Spain is better
off in a safe shelter," the official said, adding that the timing before the
Greek vote was vital.Chancellor Angela Merkel publicly praised Rajoy's fiscal
and labor market reforms and said Spain did not need to implement any deeper
austerity measures in return for help.French President Francois Hollande,
keen to avoid euro zone panic as he seeks a parliamentary majority in elections
this Sunday and next, also applied pressure for a swift bailout."France was
keen to see an agreement this weekend, to resolve the situation as soon as
possible, but I was not the only one to say that," Economy Minister Pierre
Moscovici told Reuters hours after a tense 2-1/2-hour conference call of
finance ministers over how to help Spain.U.S. President Barack Obama
telephoned Merkel, Hollande and other senior European leaders last week to
press for urgent action to stem the euro zone crisis, which poses a threat
to the U.S. recovery and hence to his re-election. Japan, Britain, Canada
and the International Monetary Fund all weighed in.U.S. Treasury Secretary
Timothy Geithner called Saturday's decisions "concrete steps on the path to
financial union, which is vital to the resilience of the euro area".ITALY
NEXT?Aside from the global pressure to stabilize the currency area, Berlin
and Paris acted out of self-interest."If Spain got into a catastrophic
situation, you could forget French and German banks," Luxembourg Finance
Minister Luc Frieden told broadcaster RTL on Sunday.Stress has risen again
on financial markets as the effects of the ECB's injection of 1 trillion euros
($1.25 trillion) in long-term cheap loans into euro zone banks in December
and February have worn off."It feels as if it is just a matter of time before
more issues will erupt, especially if growth remains sluggish," Morten
Spenner, CEO of fund of hedge fund manager International Asset Management
told Reuters. "To that end, a more holistic and much deeper political and
financial solution is ultimately required rather than a continue band-aid
by band-aid approach."ECB President Mario Draghi acknowledged last week that
the interbank market in Europe was "dysfunctional". Many southern European
banks are shut out and totally reliant on central bank money.Investors will
be concerned that if the European Stability Mechanism is used to fund the
Spanish package, as Germany prefers, bondholders will be subordinated to the
permanent euro zone rescue fund and face potential losses in any
restructuring, said Gary Jenkins of Swordfish Research."Considering that
sovereign support for Greece required private sector involvement it would
be a bit of a turn up for the books if the equivalent for (Spanish) banks
did not involve PSI (private sector involvement)," he said.Frieden said the
ministers had deliberately agreed on a big headline number for Spain to show
markets they could meet any eventuality, and he did not believe all the money
would be used."In my opinion it will not be the 100 billion, so we have built
in a safety margin so that if the expert analysis concludes that a high amount
will be needed, it is available."The Spanish rescue package was also intended
to relieve pressure on Italy, the No. 3 euro zone economy.Some market
participants see Rome, which has Europe's highest debt ratio after Greece
but a low budget deficit, as potentially next in line for a bailout which
the euro zone could ill afford."Where next? 200 or 300 billion euros for Italy?
(The Spanish bailout) is just compounding the agony," said Nick Hocart, a
director at currency fund manager Xenfin in London.Economists at Citi said
Italy faced rising debt for a prolonged period and "will most likely require
some form of intervention from the ECB (which supported Italy already twice),
the EFSF/ESM (euro zone rescue funds) and the IMF at some point".(Additional

2012 2:02pm EDT      , ,NEW YORK (Reuters) - Oil edged lower on Monday as a
relief rally on the rescue package for Spain's banks faded and investors
worried that Italy and other euro zone countries may need assistance to
weather the region's spreading debt crisis.,,Adding to pressure on oil
prices, top-exporter Saudi Arabia said OPEC may need to raise output targets
at its Thursday meeting in Vienna.With Brent crude prices down sharply from
a 2012 peak above $128 a barrel in March, that position, puts OPEC's top
producer at odds with other members that favor reduced production to stem
a supply glut.Crude futures reversed and pushed lower after rallying more
than $2 on the news that euro zone finance ministers on Saturday agreed to
lend Spain up to 100 billion euros ($125 billion) to tackle the problems of
debt-stricken banks.Along with oil's fade, the euro erased gains against the
dollar and U.S. stocks slipped on Wall Street.The recent concerns about
slowing growth in the United States and China, the two top oil-consuming
nations, and uncertainty about elections in debt-laden Greece on Sunday added
momentum to oil's retreat."While avoiding bank failures in Spain is a good
thing, investors realize that the Italians will probably want help next, so
it's not a surprise for crude to pull back," said Phil Flynn, an analyst at
Price Futures Group in Chicago.Brent July crude fell 56 cents to $98.91 a
barrel by 1:39 p.m. EDT (1739 GMT), having slipped as low as $98.03 after
reaching $102.21.U.S. July crude was down 50 cents at $83.60 a barrel, after
retreating from the $86.64 intraday peak.U.S. RBOB gasoline futures seesawed
near flat as news that a recently commissioned 325,000 barrel-per-day (bpd)
crude unit at Motiva Enterprises' Port Arthur, Texas, refinery was expected
to be shut for months supported gasoline and heating oil futures, traders
and brokers said.Crude prices received support from data showing China's
crude imports rose to a record 25.48 million tonnes, or about 6 million bpd
in May, up 18.2 percent from a year ago.But implied oil demand edged up only
0.4 percent in May from the previous year and only marginally from April,
Reuters calculations based on preliminary government data showed.Other data
showed China's inflation, industrial output and retail sales all declined
in May, sounding another note of caution about the global economy.SAUDI:
HIGHER OUTPUT MAY BE NEEDEDWith a contentious OPEC meeting looming, Ali
al-Naimi, Saudi Arabia's oil minister, said OPEC may need to raise its oil
output target for the second half of the year."Our analysis suggests that
we will need a higher ceiling than currently exists," he said in an interview
in the Gulf Oil Review.Saudi Arabia has lifted production sharply to 10
million barrels per day, a 30-year high, in an effort to help bring crude
prices down and help nurture a faltering global economy.Earlier on Monday,
OPEC's president signaled the producer group could act to reduce a global
supply glut but was unlikely to set country production quotas at the
meeting.Kuwait's oil minister said he believed a discussion about potential
output cuts was most likely inevitable."With the recent price drop, consensus
was emerging for a production cutback, certainly not an increase or talk of
one," said John Kilduff, a partner at Again Capital LLC in New York.IRAN'S
NUCLEARIran approaches the OPEC meeting facing tightening U.S.-led sanctions
and a European Union embargo on Iranian oil set for July as the dispute over
Tehran's nuclear program continues.Iran's deputy negotiator said world
powers were unprepared for the next round of talks over the controversial
nuclear program and had failed to honor agreements reached in previous
negotiations, Iranian media said on Sunday.Iran and the six powers -- the
United States, France, Russia, China, Germany and Britain -- will meet for
a third time this year in Moscow on June 18-19 to discuss the nuclear issue
after making little progress at their most recent meeting.The U.N.'s
International Atomic Energy Agency said its separate talks with the Iranians
on Friday were "disappointing," and resulted in no progress toward an
agreement on allowing inspectors access to key facilities in Iran.(Additional
