That chart compares the cost to insure sovereign debt in European countries, versus the amount of men aged 25-34 still living with their parents.
There is a noticeable trend here, where Mediterranean PIIGS members fit in quite nicely (Ireland is an outlier).
It seems as if the more 25-34 year old men living with their parents, the more expensive the cost to insure the respective sovereign’s debt.
Now this could just be a fact of cultural norms, or a causal result of unemployment being a bigger problem in these countries, but it is still an interesting trend to point out.
