See for yourself what will happen to European governments' debt

With the use of this file the development of government debt can be calculated for several European countries, the European Union, the euro region, the United States and Japan depending of a few variables with values chosen by yourself.

NB, this file only works when automatic recalculation and VBA-macros are turned on.

What is going to happen with government debt of euro area countries? Will debt levels of euro area problem countries continue to rise? What is needed to bring debt back below the European ceiling of 60% of GDP? What would be the impact of lower interest rates or more economic growth on debt development in the coming years?

In case you want to make calculations on debt development under the assumptions chosen yourself, you can use this CPB tool.
