Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Might that be because they are neo-liberal pieces of puta mierda?

Seriously. This is around the area of my dissertation.  Spain, varieties of capitalism, etc.

Part of my argument is that at least one part of Spain, e.g. the Basque Country, has been moving closer to the German model, and away from the more liberal UK model. And if you look at the numbers, the Basque country have fared much better in this recession than the rest of Spain.  It's one of, if not the only, part of the industrialized world in which industry as a % of GDP is on the rise.

And I'll give my consent to any government that does not deny a man a living wage-Billy Bragg
