They would be outside the EU and Euro, as such the attractiveness of investing there would be significantly reduced. Their new currency would, presumably, be much stronger so reducing the attractiveness of investing there.
Who is going to provide bailout funds, new countries start with junk bond status, especially as they are already part of a near junk bond country.
