If fears over the eurozone financial crisis continue to rise over the next months, Germanyís AAA-ratings as Europeís number one economy will be lowered.

The recent development comes as financial markets believe Spainís economic woes go far beyond the countryís ailing banks that have been grappling with major economic problems.

As a result, many analyst wonder whether Spain can be still considered a financially creditable state.
