Here's what Europe would look like if it were redrawn based on debt per person

Ireland is looking pretty ‘big-boned’…

DEUTSCHE BANK HAS published an interesting map that shows what Europe would look like if it were re-sized based on national debt per person.

Some countries shrink, while others, like Ireland swell up.

Sovereign debt is a contentious issue at the moment, particularly in Ireland (which is looking pretty big-boned in this map) and Greece.

Ireland looks absolutely enormous against the UK (which keeps its normal size, because it is not in the eurozone).

Here’s the map:

Tiny Greece and its islands suddenly take up a big portion of the map, and Italy’s slender boot shape has been turned into a horrendous cankle.

Central Europe suddenly looks a lot smaller: France seems to be more than twice as big as Germany.
