Spain may ask for a bailout: Queen's University expert

2012-10-11

Queen’s University political studies department head Grant Amyot is available to talk about the conflicting reports that Spain will be seeking a bailout. The Spanish prime minister has denied media reports that there are plans to make a formal request for bailout funds.

“I think a Spanish bailout is probably going to happen at some point. Will this be another nail in the coffin for the Eurozone? I don’t think it will because it will take the pressure off Spain. The bond markets will see Spain is getting a bailout and that will stop putting pressure on Spanish bond prices,” says Dr. Amyot, who specializes in European politics, European Union, political economy and economic policy.
