Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Right, okay, I misunderstood.

Show me one place in Madrid where there used to be a thriving neighborhood, with industry and local businesses, that now has abandoned homes, others demolished, and the few holdouts selling for less than you can buy a car for.

I'm actually living in one such neighbourhood and we're having a hard time finding an affordable place to buy, so we're renting...

Though there has also been overbuilding on vacant lots within existing "thriving neighbourhoods".

Economics is politics by other means
