Spain has had its dirty washing aired on the world stage

We have had a certain amount of satirical fun with the subject of Marbella’s disgraced town council this year; there is however, a serious and unfunny side to that particular story.

Although we have reported the ongoing saga of the fraud case in a light-hearted way, we never once lost sight of the fact that this was a case of major fraud and that on this occasion Spain has had its dirty washing aired on the world stage.

To every action there is a reaction and the knock on effect of the Marbella fraud case, is a lack of confidence and reluctance on the part of foreign investors on the Costa del Sol. The story will run its course and the perpetrators will be largely forgotten in time, but mud, as they say, sticks and the Costa del Sol will have to be seen to be squeaky clean for some time to come in order to win back the previous goodwill that was such a valuable part of its previous investment portfolio.

With a new year just around the corner, we can only hope that Spain has learnt from its mistakes of 2006 and will emerge older and wiser

Mayores y más sabios

Come sabéis, este año ha sido divertido publicar unos  artículos satíricos sobre el tema del desacreditado Ayuntamiento de Marbella, pero existe otro, más sombroso aspecto.

Aunque os hemos informados del desarrollo de la saga sobre el fraude de un modo cómico, desgraciadamente la verdad es que esta vez España ha salido a escena en frente del mundo entero.

Por cada acción hay una reacción,  y a causa de estos escándalos resulta que los inversionistas ahora demuestran reticencia y falta de confianza en la Costa del Sol.

La historia por cierto continuará hasta su fin y eventualmente todos se olvidarán de los responsables, pero nos costará un buen comportamiento por bastante tiempo para recuperar la confianza de los inversores.

Ahora que estamos al principio de un nuevo año, solo podemos esperar que España haya aprendido de sus errores y que salga de esto más madura y sabia.
