Stat of the Day: Table of euro-zone debt and deficits
Below is a table of all the Eurozone debt and deficit figures for 2009. The chart is in German from the Frankfurter Allgemeine newspaper, but I think the country names are clear except Österreich, which is German for Austria. The column headers are percentage of eurozone GDP, gross debt to GDP levels and federal budget deficits as a percent of GDP.
Notice how only six countries – including Spain as the only large country – meet the Maastricht 60% debt-to-GDP criteria. Germany and France do not. Also notice that only Finland and Luxembourg meet the 3% deficit hurdle.
