Catalonia Has Already Lost This Battle / Politics / Spain

By: John_Mauldin

By Jacob L. Shapiro : Catalonia held its independence referendum on October 1.

Initial results show that of the 42 percent of Catalan voters who turned out, about 90 percent voted for independence. It’s an impressive figure, but not exactly an overwhelming mandate for Catalonian independence.

No doubt a significant number of Catalans want independence, but we already knew that.

Spanish New Civil War Begins as Madrid Regime Storm Troopers Quell Catalan Independence Rebellion / Politics / Spain

By: Nadeem_Walayat

According the news reports more than 1,000 people attempting to vote in Sunday's Independence Referendum have been injured by the heavy handed tactics of the Madrid storm troopers sent in to quell the Catalan peoples uprising against the brewing Spanish dictatorship. Which is as I warned in my earlier extensive analysis could sow the seeds for a new Spanish civil war, for it should not be forgotten that during the 1930's it was a fascist Madrid regimes actions in Catalonia that sparked that civil war that ended with the ushering in of the Franco dictatorship.

Catalonia and other EU Disasters / Politics / Spain

By: Raul_I_Meijer

I’ve seen a lot of videos and photos of the Catalonia attempt to hold a referendum today (Tyler has a “nice” series of them), and what struck me most of all, apart from the senseless violence police forces were seen to engage in, is the lack of violence on the side of protesters.

So when I see the Interior Ministry claim that 11 policemen were injured, That is hard to take serious. Not that the Catalans had no reason to resist or even fight back. That hundreds of protesters, including scores of grandma’s, are injured is obvious from watching the videos. Since rubber bullets were used in large numbers, fatal injuries are quite possible.

Spain Ignores Scotland Lesson as Catalan Independence Referendum Could Spark Civil War / Politics / Spain

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The cry going out across Catalonia is that if a far less populous region such as Scotland can hold an Independence Referendum then why are the people of Catalonia being denied the same right. The Madrid regime instead of following the cue from Westminister which did not stand in the way of the Scottish people having a vote to leave the United Kingdom held in September 2014, the Spanish regime has instead decreed that the people of Catalonia do not have the freedom to vote for potential independence from an increasingly dictatorial Spanish state, as evidenced by the threats and show of force in the form of thousands of armed police sent into Catalonia in an attempt to shut down all political dissent and prevent today's Referendum vote from taking place.

The View From Madrid - Spain Running Away From Reality / Politics / Spain

Fernando del Pino writes "Independent views on Spain, Europe and the big picture of politics and money" one of the few realistic appraisals written from Europe today. Running Away from Reality is anathema to the nomenclatura since its untroubled disposition runs faster and faster from the encroaching reality.

Spain Housing Market Price Crash Has A Long Way Further To Drop / Housing-Market / Spain

By: Raul_I_Meijer

Ilargi: I received another entry from Dave Fairtex, who delves into Spanish houding data this time around. We had a nice discussion about it, since I question some of the assumptions on which he bases his interpretation of the data. In particular, I think Dave assumes 2 things:

1) That, during the - ongoing - bust, Spanish home prices will fall to the level they were at when the boom began (a drop of 55%), and then stop falling right there.

Catalonia Votes For Independence From Spain, Mainstream Press Lies As Usual / Politics / Spain

By: Ron_Holland

"Secession is a deeply American principle. This country was born through secession." ~ Ron Paul

On Sunday, pro-independence voters in Catalonia captured almost two-thirds of the regional parliament. While the establishment press attempts to hide the secession victory by mentioning that the largest pro-independence party lost parliamentary seats, this, too, was a major victory for independence forces.

Spain Headed in a Downward Economic Death Spiral? / Economics / Spain

By: Ian_R_Campbell

An article yesterday discusses what appears to be continued downward economic trends in Spain. I see this as hardly unexpected by those who have been following Spain closely.

I strongly suggest you read Austerity fails to close Spain's budget black hole if you have not already done that. If you participate in the financial markets, and Spain is not highly visible on your radar screen, I suggest it ought to be.

Spains Tarir Square: A Revolution Struggles To Be Born / Politics / Spain

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article Spain is justly proud of the Paella, a distinctive dish that mixes diverse vegetables or seafood into a tasty fusion of delectability.

They have now created a political version in the form of Tarir Square type encampment in Madrid’s Puerta del Sol where a diverse mix of activists---old, young, male-female, disabled, immigrant, activists from Western Sahara, have created a beachhead for what many say is the closest this country has come to a popular and distinctive revolutionary movement since the 1930’s.

Spanish Election Sets Precedent: More Debt, and Inflation / Politics / Spain

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Unbeknownst to most investors in the North American markets, the Spanish went to vote over the weekend.  Their votes proved that there will be no end to the European debt crisis.

When the markets opened early for Asian trading, the results of the election were immediately priced into paper currencies, especially the Euro, as well as real currencies, gold and silver.  Commodities took a dive with the Euro, which was largely to do with institutional investors waking up to the sad reality of a continental banking system: you can’t please everyone.

This Spanish Spring is the Real Thing / Politics / Spain

By: Patrick_Henningsen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGiles Dexter writes: It was perhaps inevitable given its long associations with, and geographical proximity to the Maghreb, that Spain should be the first European country to be swept up by the wave known as the “Arab Spring”. Protests have been raging across the country since May 15th, and like previous rumblings in Greece, this Spanish Spring will likely send a new shockwave through the EU.

World Cup Football Saves Spain's Economy from Collapse / Economics / Spain

By: Pravda

The victory of the Spaniards over the Dutch in the World Cup will help the economy, experts say. The euphoria of the victory improves the mood of the population, and the population in a good mood begins to spend more money and shop more frequently. According to ING and ABN Amro banks, the gold medal of the Spanish national team will boost the country's GDP growth by 0.25-0.5%.

Spain's Dropout Generation / Politics / Spain

By: MISES

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJaime Levy Moreno writes: In the last two decades in Mediterranean Europe, and especially in Spain, a new social group has emerged, called jovenes (youngsters). Members of this group exhibit several specific characteristics. First, jovenes are usually male, aged 25–35, although some members are in their 40s. Second, they are in a perpetual state between graduation and their first job. Third, they usually live with their parents to save money, allowing them to go out at least three times a week.
