World: Safest Versus Riskiest Government Debt
This graph from The Economist compares two-year government debt bond yields in the world. On the left side the riskiest bonds are listed (with the highest interest rate) and on the rate sate the safest bonds. Notable is that two out of three of the three countries that have riskiest government bonds are in Europe. The three safest countries are in Europe as well.
