I can't believe there aren't more here at ATS talking about this! I searched and this is the only thread, with only a couple people here? With
everything going on across the globe of late, I must admit I'm not up with the particulars of Spain's current situation. But this seems like a
potentially big deal, no? I only heard about this from a Spanish friend here in the US who posted same vid to FB.
Is this a similar situation to what Greece has been going through? Or has Spain found it's own unique way to get shafted by their Gov't?
Spanish politics are very complicated. People are terribly segmented and separated. Part of people are coming into real poverty. But, by the other
hand there's segments that tax increasing or falling wages not affects at all (mostly not young people) as still has savings or properties
(real-estate) -even today highly overrated- and can resist all of this.
You see here as a result of the wanton violence stemming from a monstrous housing bubble.....
young versus elderly
public employees versus private employees
"liberal" versus "socialdemocrats"
nationalist versus regionalists .......
regions that want independence but can not pay salaries of officials and attend the central state of emergency loans (that's not a joke)
an incredible amount of unproductive public office, living off from wages from 3,000 to 6,000 euros, because they hold client networks that are
already dead..... a new graduate, well educated, with a language, you can now earn about 800 euros ... and that's if you're lucky enough to have a
job (and surely being a brown tongue).....
Spanish politicians want to avoid or delay a bailout to cover up cases of corruption that could lead to powerful people to jail and seize their
the highest number politicians (including advisors)
over 22,500 cars for senior officers (this figure may be higher than in all of the USA)
taxes (tax effort) Europe's highest
the worst market management (public companies). Internet and electricity more expensive in Europe
highest rentals - most expensive houses in Europe (compared to wages).
so we, you can see.
Spain's problem is political about everything.
Not only banks can loan sharks. There are many ways to be usurious. There is a kind of anti-liberal usurer gene that infects everything.
Spain is blocked by this disease.
No businesses. Only usury ...... live off, although the country is sinking.
I'll tell you a simple way the Spanish one is laughing at the other ..... but no matter, people watch football on TV and heard, we are world
