    upsy daisy :D Austria-germany spread now @160 all time high

    Nov. 9 (Bloomberg) -- Austria may not be able to provide enough capital to underpin its banks’ units in eastern Europe on top of their domestic business if they resort to state aid again, Standard & Poor’s Ratings Service said today.

Austrian lenders including Erste Group Bank AG and Raiffeisen Bank International AG are the biggest lenders to borrowers in eastern Europe, according to the Bank for International Settlements.
