Summary/Abstract: The purpose of providing financial assistance to indebted eurozone countries is to avoid ncontrolled bankruptcies that could lead to a breakdown of the euro area with severe egative onsequences for all members of the EU. There is a high probability that the loans provided ia the stability mechanisms will not be fully recovered. Nevertheless, the long-term benefits of hose loans are expected to exceed the costs. Therefore, this form of financial assistance hould be regarded as an investment that has its own rate of return, one that can be ontrolled or by insistence on adherence to certain rules of behaviour and diligent oversight.
