Next to the Eurostat listing of the currency bloc’s greatest borrowers is Italy at 132.6 percent of GDP, Portugal (129 percent) and Ireland (123.7 percent) are third and fourth. Italy, the eurozone’s third-biggest economy, is battling to reduce its debt while in the face of poor growth and record unemployment. There’s exactly the same issue for France, Europe’s second-largest economy, which on Wednesday revealed additional spending reductions, under great pressure from Brussels to fulfill its obligations under EU deficit rules.
