The financial turmoil resulting from the subprime crisis and then the European sovereign debt crisis have weakened the euro zone’s banks and the state of public finances, creating a vicious circle in which the banking and debt crises have been mutually reinforcing (Shambaugh, 2012). This was followed by an unprecedented loss of confidence that caused a double liquidity crisis: first in September 2008, following the fall of Lehman Brothers, and then at the end of 2011 due to the European debt crisis.
