Welcome to Capital Account. When we talk about bank recapitalizations or rescue plans, what usually captures headlines are dollar or euro amounts, the names of various abbreviated, bailout vehicles — be they the EFSF or the ESM — top politicians, technocrats and international organizations like the IMF.
