Comments on: Euro zone daren’t flunk Lisbon’s solidarity test Mon, 26 Sep 2016 03:26:00 +0000 hourly 1 By: paulos Fri, 12 Apr 2013 15:34:32 +0000 These debts can be rolled over for ever in order to hide the fact that the Eurozone’s economic forecasts are rubbish. Portugal and Ireland were supposed to be enjoying growth by now but are far from it. The reality is that Spain, Greece, Portugal, Ireland and now Cyprus are going to be stuck in depression for years and years. Any hope of repaying their debts is just that – a hope. The Eurozone finance ministers will again and again kick the can down the road instead of facing reality.
