Europe is continuing to wrestle with the ominous prospect of a Greek debt default that many fear could spread panic and push the already fragile economies of Italy, Portugal and Spain into a crisis that would rock the Eurozone and lead to global repercussions. On Thursday the Bundestag, under the urging of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, is expected to pass an increase in funding for the European Financial Stability Facility (EFSF), a measure many see as necessary for financial markets to regain confidence in the European banking system.
