Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Why did no one inform me that Spain has this tower of awesome?

Oh, wait, there is mention of this years ago.

But the mainstream media?

If one looks closely, Spain was doing more things right than other Euro-countries and the US.  Had they avoided the debt fueled housing construction and inflation boom along with all the immigrant construction labor, the country would be in reasonably good shape today.

As long as they would still have been a current account deficit country, their state debt would still have been speculated against.

Had they not entered the euro on the other hand...
