The minor problem, is that democracy might get in the way. The EU-politicians-puppets-of-banksters have until now been able to control the populace (both in debtor and creditor countries), but the pain that is being inflicted might be too much and somebody might rebel (Finland almost did it, lets hope somebody does it)...
The problem is that the only way the populace can reject the current plans is through more or less racist national-populist movements who largely have the wrong target and mostly focus anger on brown people rather than banks.
But back to your (more important) point: The fact is that there is, in most countries, no decent parties arguing for restructuring should send shivers through everybody's spines. I think that there is a serious risk that an "ugly" party will get into power somewhere (though, like in .NL, they might already be there in some form).
This fascist narrative (I think the word is appropriate here) can be the source of much grief and sorrow in the near future...
