European Bond Markets

When the third stage of EMU began on January 1, 1999, bond markets in the euro area were redenominated in euro. Since then, the euro area has become a leading bond market, with total outstanding debt representing nearly half of the total outstanding debt worldwide.

 

This course focuses on the three largest debt-issuing countries in the euro area, namely France, Germany, and Italy.
