The Eurozone will continue in recession through 2014. Critics point to Spain, France and Portugal as the worst economies in Europe. Spain promised to cut their debt to 6.3 percent of national production, but ended the year with 10,2 percent of debt.
This year Spain will have a debt of 6.7%, rather than the 4.5 % of national production agreed upon with EU ministers.
