summary The present crisis in home mortgage loan defaults in the US has some parallels in various EU member countries. However, the EU countries, by and large, have avoided the worst of the US problems. Depending on the countries observed, the European nations seem to be doing a better job in this critical area, due to different, often much narrower, sources of home loans, tougher standards for offering these loans, and differences in the functionning of the secondary markets for home loans. Moreover, in countries where mortgage defaults have risen and the problem is thus more severe, there is again variation in the measures that have been taken to protect homeowners, and their relative success.
