Greece, Spain, both have over 26% unemployment, but inflation is down, ain't it great?
Greece has the highest unemployment rate in the eurozone, leapfrogging Spain. At the end of October, Greece's unemployment rate was 26.8 percent against Spain's 26.1 percent. Greece's statistics are compiled on a different timeframe.
Separately, Eurostat reported that inflation in the eurozone fell to 2 percent in the year to January, down from 2.2 percent the previous month. The decline was unexpected and comes ahead of next Thursday's European Central Bank rate-setting meeting.
