Abstract: This study analyzes public debts and deficits between European countries. The statistical evidence here seems in general to reveal that sovereign debts and government deficits of countries within European Monetary Unification-in average- are getting worse than countries outside European Monetary Unification, in particular after the introduction of Euro currency. This socioeconomic issue might be due to Maastricht Treaty, the Stability and Growth Pact, the new Fiscal Compact, strict Balanced-Budget Rules, etc. In fact, this economic policy of European Union, in phases of economic recession, may generate delay and rigidity in the application of prompt counter-cycle (or acyclical) interventions to stimulate the economy when it is in a downturn within countries. Some implications of economic policy are discussed.
