Why do you think there is talk of war against Iran? The FACT is they are out of ammunition. Gas prices will set the stage.

Here is an article that shows how difficult it is becoming for fixed income investors to find low risk sovereign bonds:

And here is an article that shows how Spain have shorter debt than another countries as a Germany or France.
Spain ranks 36, while France is way down the chart at 67, and Portugal 68. The ten points of each economy analyzed show France has done nothing to free its economy, while raising taxes, while Spain under the new president is tackling its worst problems, its rigid labor laws. It will be interesting to see what happens over the next year as both French candidates for president are going the opposite direction from solving the root problems of its economy. Raising taxes always drives out investment. Of course, everything in the euro zone depends on the ECB’s printing presses. Will it cave and issue unlimited money?
