European leaders, under threat of debt downgrades across the eurozone, are rushing to deliver a credible remedy to the crisis this week but as time runs out analysts warn there will be no quick fix. [...]

Analysts say the ECB's intervention would give European leaders the breathing space they need to implement the politically-sensitive changes to the EU treaty.

"The ECB must effectively act as a 'lender of last resort' at least until more permanent arrangements are in place," Janis Emmanouilidis and Fabian Zuleeg, European Policy Centre think tank, wrote in a commentary.

"It is still possible to avert meltdown: but at a price. Not only will eurozone countries have to agree to 'more Europe' ... but they will also have to allow the ECB to step in to prevent immediate collapse," they wrote.
