Resumen

En el presente trabajo analizo la segunda fase de la actual crisis financiera o los acontecimientos que conmocionaron a las economías europeas en el período 2009-2010. Estos hechos tuvieron el punto de inicio con la declaración sobre Grecia en octubre de 2009 en la que se decía que el déficit sería mucho mayor de lo que había sido anunciado previamente, y que culminó en la crisis de mayo de 2010, cuando la UE creo un fondo de un trillón de dólares con el fin de tranquilizar a los mercados. Actualmente, la crisis sigue su curso (aunque aquí se trata hasta noviembre de 2010). La crisis de la deuda soberana europea es principalmente analizada con la ayuda de la teoría sociológica de la confianza. El argumento es (basándome en Bagehot) que las crisis financieras pueden ser desencadenadas por la revelación súbita de pérdidas ocultas - en este caso (como trato de documentar) la divulgación de Grecia.
