  5. 5. Debt crisis• A debt crisis deals with countries and their ability to repay borrowed funds.• It would be continuous deficit spending that keeps adding to the national debt. Eventually, we reach the point where servicing the debt can not be maintained leading to a default on the obligation. i.e. Greece.• From late 2009, fears of a sovereign debt crisis developed among investors as a result of the rising private and government debt levels around the world together with a wave of downgrading of government debt in some European states. 5
  6. 6. • In Greece, unsustainable public sector wage and pension commitments drove the debt increase.• The European Central Bank has taken measures to maintain money flows between European banks by lowering interest rates and providing weaker banks (mostly from crisis countries) with cheap loans of more than one trillion Euros.• Three countries significantly affected, Greece, Ireland and Portugal, collectively accounted for 6% of the euro zones gross domestic product (GDP). In June 2012, also Spain became a matter of concern, when rising interest rates began to affect its ability to access capital markets, leading to a bailout of its banks and other measures. 6
