It looks as if Germany and France are trying to fix the central issue of a monetary union without political union. They have tied financial changes to legislative ones and are essentially paying Greece to make their laws more favorable to economic success.

Whether or not that is beneficial to the people of Greece is the interesting question. When I read about Greece I hear a lot about cronyism and corruption running rampant as well as contributing to some of the strife going on now. Has anyone been able to find out what legislation will be changed as a result of this deal? I tried to read the legalese but it's all Greek to me.
