Between 1996 and 2007 the Spanish economy was one of the fastest growing and most successful economies in Europe. This success, however, came to a halt in 2008 and Spain is now suffering a very painful economic recession. While the global economic crisis has been a significant contributing factor in this downturn, this book will show that domestic imbalances largely help account for the current economic problems. The book examines the reasons for the crisis, analyzes the government's responses, and draws some lessons from the Spanish experience. The book offers an up-to-date assessment of political and economic issues in Spain.

Sebastián Royo is Associate Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences and an Associate Professor of Government at Suffolk University.

Editorial Reviews

"In this book, Sebastian Royo presents a rigorous and comprehensive analysis of the economic crisis that afflicted Spain following a decade of impressive growth. It is essential reading not only for those with particular interest in Spain, but also for those wishing to understand the difficulties surrounding public policy responses to economic collapse in complex modern societies." - Richard Gunther, Professor, Department of Political Science, Ohio State University, USA"This book is a complete description of the uniqueness of the economic and financial crisis in Spain, in the context of the broader crisis of the Eurozone." - Emilio Ontiveros, Professor, Universidad Autonoma de Madrid, Spain
