The politics and potential impact of the latest Greek bailout package

After a marathon session that lasted all weekend, Eurozone leaders came to an agreement that granted Greece a third bailout, and, for now, keeps the country in the euro. The agreement starts negotiations on a loan package for Greece worth $91-96bn in exchange for reforms that aim to streamline the pension system, boost tax revenue, privatize electricity, and extend common business hours, among other reforms.
