The Spanish Economy In 2020: Things Are Not Looking So Bad

Oriol Carreras and Eduard Llorens i Jimeno (CaixaBank Research) | All the indicators suggest that next year will be defined by the same key elements. As we can see in the first chart, to the extent that global growth, and that of the euro area in particular, remains contained, we do not expect to see a significant surge in exports.

We have seen how the public debt figures are being manipulated downward, and now we’re going to see how there are also manipulations in Spanish GDP, but this time they are upward.

MADRID | April 7, 2015 | By Fernando G. UrbanejaThere are two lingering black marks against the Spanish economy. The first is rampant unemployment, which is second only to Greece in the euro area and the OECD.  The second is a large budget deficit-the largest in Europe-which remains stubbornly high and is still some way off the target of 3% of GDP. Against that backdrop, the Spanish economy has returned to stronger growth this year, with forecasts showing the economy could expand by as much as 3%.
