In order to present the impact of the 2008 global financial crisis, this chapter first describes the common problems in France, Germany, Ireland, and the United Kingdom. Next, it graphically compares the GDP growth, total general government debt, unemployment rate, and consumer price inflation of the four countries during the time period from 2005 to 2010. Then, we elaborate on the financial crisis impact on each country individually in the sequence of France, Germany, Ireland, and the United Kingdom.
