”According to a new ranking of 163 countries, Europe’s big economies, including France, Germany, Italy, Sweden and the United Kingdom, are the most exposed to fiscal risk due to their ageing populations, substantial levels of debt and high public spending on health and pensions”.
”Europe is home to 11 out of the twelve countries rated ‘extreme risk.’ These include: Italy (1), Belgium (2), France (3), Sweden (4), Germany (5), Hungary (6), Denmark (7), Austria (8), United Kingdom (10), Finland (11) and Greece (12). Japan (9) is the only other country in the highest risk category”. Från Maplecroft. Länk Nedan. http://maplecroft.com/about/news/fiscal_risk_2011.html
