Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Greece needs to raise around €50bn ($68bn, £44bn) in finance for each of the next five years to roll over existing debt and pay interest. That adds up to approximately €250bn, or about 100 per cent of Greek annual GDP.

That means Greece has to raise 20% of GDP.

Hey, if you add up enough years every country owes 1000% of GDP.
