Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This means that, as vbo points out, any serious push for Catalonian independence will be based on a false premise : the idea that they would be able to repudiate their debts (or their share of Spanish debts). That is clearly impossible within the Euro with the current rules; so that means exiting the euro, and good luck with the economy.

So economically, independence could only lead to things getting much worse, no?
