Europe's financial bloc today announced it has approved a €100,000,000,000 ($125 billion) bailout to help shore up Spain's banking sector. The country's banks have suffered from bad loans as property prices have tumbled. The Prime Minister has assured his people that the bailout from the Eurozone will help Spain recover from economic despair.
The nation is over €700,000,000,000 in debt, which amounts to about $900 billion Canadian. Unemployment among Spaniards is hovering around 24.1%. Canada's is around 7.3%. Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, after meeting European leaders this week, has cautioned the Eurozone not to implement any socialist measures, fearing that if Europe falls, the Canadian economy would fall into another recession.
