      During the boom years Spain was carried away on a speculative frenzy that enriched a few and impoverished many. The Spanish journalist Lluís Pellicer, who writes for El Pais, has written a book chronicling the worst excess of the boom. It’s called ‘El Vicio del Ladrillo’ I’m not sure how you would translate it, something like ‘The Real Estate Vice’. It’s a depressing story. Here is an extract in Spanish dealing the Astroc and Enrique Bañuelos – the poster child of the boom.
