Over 100 billion euros have left the country in the first three months of this year – that’s more than a tenth of Spain’s GDP.  Fears are growing that just like Greece – Spain will soon need a euro bailout.  But unlike Greece – Spain is a huge economy – the fourth biggest in Europe – meaning a bailout would be a lot more expensive – and a default would be catastrophic for the euro.  

Meanwhile in Ireland – voters took to the polls to approve a new EU treaty that requires Ireland and other Eurozone nations to meet budget deficit goals through brand new austerity measures.   Polls indicate the treaty will likely pass – however results aren’t expected until this evening.
