THE DEBATE

THE DEBATE

Latest update : 2010-12-13

Europe's debt crisis: Portugal under pressure

Will Portugal be next? As the finger-pointing continues, the country is scrambling to avoid its fate as prescribed by the markets. Investors are almost certain Lisbon will follow Athens and Dublin and be next in line for an EU/IMF bailout. So is Europe on the right road to ending the crisis? Or are we facing bailout after bailout? Is the euro, and the European Union itself, under threat?

A debate with Laura Baines and guests:

José-Manuel LAMARQUE, Co-Producer of Transeuropéenne on France Inter (French public radio)
Ana NAVARRO PEDRO, Paris Correspondent for Visao (Portuguese weekly)
Jacob Funk KIRKEGAARD, Economist and Research Fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics (by phone from Washington)

Programme prepared by Yi Song and Perrine Desplats
