But in the same time, the situation is different in other European countries. Ireland, Portugal and Spain have serious debt problems. Ireland has already had a bailout and it seems that Portugal will be next.
An interest rate hike in Europe will only worsen these nations’ problems. It’s interesting how the euro will change in the nearest future after tomorrow’s announcement of the ECB.
