Might that be because they are neo-liberal pieces of puta mierda?

Seriously. This is around the area of my dissertation.  Spain, varieties of capitalism, etc.

Part of my argument is that at least one part of Spain, e.g. the Basque Country, has been moving closer to the German model, and away from the more liberal UK model. And if you look at the numbers, the Basque country have fared much better in this recession than the rest of Spain.  It's one of, if not the only, part of the industrialized world in which industry as a % of GDP is on the rise.

I don't really know if I'm going to be able to do field work.  No money, no time.  The university has decided that they aren't going to honor their agreement to 6 years of funding.  So I have a year, and then I have to find a job. I will have to find work then, but I'm not sure if I will have the dissertation done. I've thought about trying to find work in Spain, but academic pay there is ridiculously low.  As I'm certain you know.  I had a friend offered a full time position in Barcelona for 1500 euro a month. With rents being what they are that's an issue.
