It’s easy to misinterpret economic data, especially in a foreign market which is different to the one back home. Is la Caixa expanding, or contracting – dumping its housing stock on the market at reduced prices? Here’s another link:
Is there a lack of transparency? Almost certainly. And some misunderstanding? Definitely. Do I understand it? No.
