EN ESTE ARTÍCULO del The Economist sobre la crisis de la eurozona lo que me ha dejado particularmente helado es este dato: “The corporate-debt problem is worst in Portugal, Spain and Italy, where the IMF says that 50%, 40% and 30% of debt, respectively, is owed by firms which cannot cover their interest payments out of pre-tax earnings. These firms are unable to invest or grow. They are zombie companies, much like those wafting through Japan in the 1990s.”
