What could go wrong?

After the creation of the euro in 1999,

European nations that had previously been considered risky,
and therefore faced limits on the amount they could borrow,

began experiencing huge inflows of capital.

After all, investors apparently thought, 

Greece/Portugal/Ireland/Spain were members of EMU, 

so what could go wrong?
