Enquanto uns entram em estado de erecção psicológica...

... só de pensar nos grandes investimentos públicos, outros já escrevem sobre o bail-out de países na Europa (países, já não é sobre bancos), entre os quais Portugal:
"The European Union’s executive arm forecasts a deficit of 11 percent in Ireland, 6.2 percent in Spain and 4.6 percent in Portugal this year. The euro region’s average budget gap was just 0.6 percent in 2007.
European officials have already expressed concern that their bond market could potentially face a crisis similar to that unleashed by the collapse of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. in September. .
ECB board member Lorenzo Bini Smaghi said Feb. 12 there’s a “risk that the mistrust that there is today in financial markets” is “transformed into mistrust in states.”
The gap between the interest rates Greece, Austria and Spain must pay investors to borrow for 10 years and the rate charged Germany yesterday rose to the widest since before they adopted the euro. Credit-default swaps on Ireland rose to a record on Feb. 16, climbing to 378.4 points.
Greek credit-default swaps, 270 points on Feb. 16, show a 4.5 percent chance that the country will default in the next 12 months, according to ING Bank NV.
Eddington Capital’s Allen, who runs a fund of hedge funds, says the market currently “vastly underestimates” the risks and expects credit-default swaps for Greece, Italy, Spain and Portugal to double in the next 12 months."
