Panel regressions linking for Euro area Members the spread with respect to German rates to fiscal variables like debt ratio, debt service ratio, expected future deficits, public pension liabilities, liquidity issues The first results show that debt service ratios and expecteds deficits are most importyant variables and that some non linear effects are in evidence
