Correct official name is European Financial Stability Facility[edit]

I notice the description of EFSF, which until 11.10.2011 was correctly referred here in Wikipedia under its official name European Financial Stability Facility has now been moved to incorrect name European Financial Stability Fund which should be reversed. European Financial Stability Fund, should either be deleted or changed to a redirection page (with redirect to European Financial Stability Facility).

The official web site proves this: http://www.efsf.europa.eu/about/index.htm "The European Financial Stability Facility (EFSF) was created by the euro area member states following the decisions taken May 9, 2010 within the framework of the Ecofin Council."

Now referral names fixed FinHits (talk) 18:32, 12 October 2011 (UTC)

Greek facility[edit]

The separate facility of EU/IMF funding for Greek is clearly related to this mechanism and should be mentioned. Alinor (talk) 10:42, 23 October 2010 (UTC)

I don't think it's extremely important since it's obvious they'd be adopting it to this. e.g. They made it today so that the system will be 11-year spanned for paying it back, that must be answering the extension of the the first loan too. --193.92.61.245 (talk) 19:36, 28 November 2010 (UTC)
There will most likely be a second Greek bailout, this time from from the EFSF. The first bilateral one in 2010 is mentioned under Guarantees as not being part of outstanding EFSF guarantees. This is relevant, as i) it does not reduce EFSF capacity and ii) Slovakia opted out from the 2010 Greek loan, and Estonia was also not then a Eurozone country. It might be useful to create a separate wikientry for the €110 billion bilateral 2010 Greek Bailout. FinHits (talk) 17:25, 16 October 2011 (UTC)

Per Capita "garantee commitment" is relevant?[edit]

I believe that the per capita information is only relevant in the speech of some politicians that are presenting the "guarantee commitments" as disbursing of money or increase of the deficit of a country which is not the case. This gives, in my opinion, not only useless information but a little of support to demagogy. For the same reason a believe that the first phrase should same be ‘guaranteed’ or created and not financed: the official site says : EFSF is a Luxembourg-registered company owned by Euro Area Member States — Preceding unsigned comment added by Pacitoali (talkcontribs) 16:28, 3 October 2011 (UTC)

Slovakia and Finland[edit]

Hi, is it useful to separately mention details of the Slovakian and Finnish ratification processes? I think the main point is that the EFSF was successfully ratified. Cheers,--Dailycare (talk) 19:46, 23 October 2011 (UTC)

- Valid point when these used to be under Englargement section, but both are now under the new Controversies section. The ratification being controversial is the only, but important, point of this section. EFSF can be viewed as a quite controversial and potentially dangerous financial scheme FinHits (talk) 21:37, 2 November 2011 (UTC)

Sorting columns in the table[edit]

Please note that the only columns that sort the table correctly are the ones containing percentages. All the other show wrong results (try them and you'll understand what I mean). Where could be the bug? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.80.82.250 (talk) 07:52, 26 October 2011 (UTC)

Look out for possible copyright violations in this article[edit]

This article has been found to be edited by students of the Wikipedia:India Education Program project as part of their (still ongoing) course-work. Unfortunately, many of the edits in this program so far have been identified as plain copy-jobs from books and online resources and therefore had to be reverted. See the India Education Program talk page for details.

Language[edit]

It would be great if this article, as well as the one on 'ESM' were written in a language, which Earthlings have a decent chance of understanding. Seriously. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 94.252.125.240 (talk) 09:34, 19 January 2012 (UTC)

Could you indicate which sections/statements are unclear? --Boson (talk) 12:24, 19 January 2012 (UTC)
