For months the great and good of world finance have been demanding eurozone leaders come up with a comprehensive rescue plan. Now, finally, the contours of just such a plan are begining to emerge.
The key is likely to be a massive boost to the eurozone's ability to provide bailout funds - up to as much as two trillion euros, according to some reports. Enough money, eurozone leaders hope, to reassure nervous financial markets.
So why now?
In recent weeks concern has grown about inter-bank lending. Inter-bank lending was a the centre of the credit credit crunch that pitched the world into crisis in the first place.
Once again banks just aren't lending to each other in the volumes they usually do, which raises the prospect of "credit crunch two".
And, like any Hollywood sequel, we're being told that this second credit crunch will be bigger and more frightening than the first. So, how shakey are European banks and will two thousand billion Euros be enough?
