    Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti has said his country does not need a bailout, even though its borrowing costs have soared amid contagion from Spain, whose recent bailout has failed to calm markets. "Italy, even in the future, will not need aid from the European Financial Stability Fund," Monti said in an interview with the German Public Radio ARD on Tuesday (12 June). He called on investors and market analysts "not to be governed by clichés or prejudices" and argued that his country has left its "undisciplined" past behind and is doing more to put its house in order than...

After a 2½-hour conference call of the 17 finance ministers, which several sources described as heated, the Eurogroup and Madrid said the amount of the bailout would be sufficiently large to banish any doubts. "The loan amount must cover estimated capital requirements with an additional safety margin, estimated as summing up to €100 billion in total," a Eurogroup statement...
