Unrest in Spain

Greece seems to be getting a lot of the attention lately, but things have been "heating up" on the other end of the Mediterranean too this week as we head into summer in the northern hemisphere.

Below is some violent video of recent unrest in Spain, where we see countrymen pitted against countrymen in violent clashes. It looks mostly like employees of the state brutally trying to evict what looks like young peaceful protesters who just want to be employed. Young persons who want access to a means of subsistence for themselves and probably a naturally desired family or household.

Is this too much to ask?

It has been reported that 1 in 5 of Spanish citizens under 30 years old have yet to find their first job.

More NYT deficit hysteria. This time from Gretchen Morgenson.

Trots out the government as household canard.

The funniest part is the "drift into ever-higher inflation and interest rates". Most be a really gradual drift!

Mmmmm, household canard a l'orange.

Guess they're drifting ever-higher by going down, to negative, to negative infinity and then around the other end to positive infinity and down to ever-higher land.
