Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

So looking at that graph, apart from the pink lines at the end , there's no reason for Greece to be in dire straits, before the pink I assume projected section, government debt was actually decreasing over the years and show a much better ability to restrain government finances than any of the quoted non-eurozone

The US, UK and especially Japan look much more likely to have a financial crisis than Greece or any of the other nations quoted

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

In Anglo-land, you lose a good few credit rating points just for being foreign.
