The concerns about Europe's economy grow out of concern about the burden of debt run up by some nations. If you divide the billions of dollars owed to lenders by millions of citizens in Greece, the debt works out to about $41,000 per person.

Italy, the United States, and Gernany also have a significant amount of government debt per person.
