Interesting article here about another side to the story of Spanish problems, a brighter future in Latin America is luring Spaniards.
This Mexican economist says as nicely as possible that ‘Spain’s economy is totally ‘chingada’ which I had to look up immediately 😯 Well you learn something everyday 😉
4.51% March unemployment rate in Mexico compared to 27% in Spain seems a no-brainer and no language barriers, good weather, and Spaniards are off to start businesses there 8)

Mark, I Googled the word, I couldn’t possibly say the English on here somehow the Spanish doesn’t sound so bad 😉 😉
It’s only the Mexican’s opinion, or is it? 😮

I know Spanish people who’ve worked abroad in the past, in the UK and in Australia, and they returned to get good jobs in Spain. It’s not going to be the same for everyone, but for many it’s an opportunity to learn new skills, improve their languages and experience life abroad. No different to those of us (Irish, Brits, Poles or whoever) who have worked abroad. Of course it’s not ideal when you get families split for a time, or when a one year out becomes 2 or 3.
The other side of the coin is that instead of foreign workers (Columbians, Ecuadorians, Rumanians etc) sending money out of Spain, now the money is moving in the other direction. I believe I saw that money remittances are now showing a net inflow into Spain, after many years of going in the opposite direction.
