The Troika's Wishlist

Reuters reports that the EU, IMF and ECB (aka troika) have drawn up a report which includes a list of measures they want to see enacted by Athens, before the Euro130BN bailout fund is released (always assuming of course the bondholders agree to their haircut).

This is all very nice. 

However, given that the bondholders have yet to agree terms of their haircut and the Greeks are in denial about the wishlist actually being binding or relevant (government spokesman Pantelis Kapsis said the government would try to negotiate some of the points), the chances of Greece avoiding a disorderly default are the same as that of a cat in hell.
