Some common sense discussion is taking place in Spain regarding the necessity of Spain exiting the eurozone.
For example, please consider Opposition to the euro breaks: first manifesto to leave the single currency as translated from El Economista.
The political opposition that Spain remains part of the euro begins to crystallize. And the tool to achieve that end-Spain output of the single currency is again signing a manifest public that, for the moment, has already been signed by around 1,000 professionals convinced “the risks of deterioration and degradation that there are the enormous social suffering caused by the persistence of adjustment policies, austerity and privatization of the public “.
Among the signatories are former general coordinator of United Left (IU) Julio Anguita or economists Juan Francisco Martín Seco and Pedro Montes, Manuel Monereo addition, Manuel Muela and Carlos Martinez, president of Attac Spain, or exsindicalista Agustin Moreno. Written Signatories to the start for a first finding analysis: the level of unemployment is “catastrophic “the indebtedness of the Spanish economy to the outside is” unable to cope “and the evolution of public accounts leads inexorably to the” economic collapse of the state “.
Specifically, they say, more than six million unemployed, more than 2.3 billion euros of gross liabilities from the outside and a public debt of almost a billion euros, growing and already close to 100% of GDP, “are data defining an unmanageable mess, endanger destroy coexistence and social rights. “
“Spain Must Have a Plan to Exit the Euro”

Spain should never be forced out. We are a big country in Europe, and we must enforce our political weight, seeking alliances to solve the crisis. But if Portugal or Italy decide to leave the euro, we must have a plan to get out that day, “he answered a question from a reader. “I hope that there is intelligent life in Europe and that day may never come,” he added.
