Abstract
This paper provides an empirical analysis of the relationship between economic variables and sovereign risk premiums in the eurozone between the years 1988 and 2013. By using a Markov regime switching model it is possible to prove a nonlinear relationship. The result supports previous research, arguing that the market is observing economic variables to a larger degree during periods of financial instability.
