Take Spain... the so called experts and politicians and media constantly state "the sovereign debt problem of Spain"... instead of the actual fact.. that Spain has one of the lowest debt vs GDP if not the lowest of the major economies.. 64% last time I looked a few weeks ago.
Miss-information for political and profit purposes are ripe and they are almost universally negative which depresses demand which in turn means unemployment goes up. And add to this cluster**** you have certain countries where the whole political system is ****ed up due to infighting /wave USA, so nothing what so ever can get done to fix major problems. Much of this **** could be fixed if the US congress and President could get their big business backers hands out of their asses and actually do something about the housing problem that caused this **** in the first place. Yes this means haircuts and debt forgiveness on an epic scale, but there is no way out of the problem since most people's wealth is sitting in their homes.
This crisis is 70%+ mental and 30% real economic problems.

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
