que l'entreprise multinationale soutient

La limite de solvabilité dépend du niveau de la dette et des taux d'intérêt. Le Japon avec une dette de 200 % du PIB mais un taux de 1,5 % aura le même niveau de charges d'intérêt que la France avec 80 % de dette. Voila comment le Japon pourra SOUTENIR, tant que ses taux restent bas, UNE DETTE plus élevée que la Grèce

Soutenir la dette = avoir les ressources pour faire face au poids de la dette. Voir le texte joint svp.

disagree  Germaine: Sauf qu'ici, on parle d'une multinationale et d'un ratio Dette-Capitaux propres. À la rigueur, l'entreprise peut maintenir le ratio en question, mais en général, elle cherche à le réduire, pas à le "soutenir".// Avez-vous lu la question?

  -> soutenir ce ratio = soutenir la dette correspondante. Soutenir une dette = avoir les moyens de rembourser la dette. Avez-vous lu le document joint ?=
