Now my theory is that there are not many private bond-holders left. They have used the last two years to get rid of their credits to Irish banks. The obligations of the Irish banks have shifted to the Irish state and the ECB.
Is this consistent with the circus we saw in November, with Germany, France and the ECB pressuring Ireland to accept a bailout of its foreign creditors?
