    The Iberian peninsula is in a pretty mess. I really wonder how the things are going to pan out in the mid-long term (2 – 5 years). Staggering numbers of young people are unemployed, social tensions are rising and many companies are going bust. Real estate and construction sector (which were real drivers of the economy) in depression. Now they call for a general strike in Portugal. Human nature is human nature and I do not see these people being able to bear austerity for much longer.
