Ok, it appears they are stopping evictions on mortgage holders who stop paying the mortgage for two years. How is that different than here-at least here it is upto the bank and they base it on the size of the hit they would take on their balance sheet as opposed to keeping it on the balance sheet at mark to fantasy. Isn't Spain ruled by the conservatives?

It is a tragedy that someone takes such an extreme action. It should be investigated if any law was broken. But the policy and the order of the society should not be determined by the isolated case. A few years ago, someone committed a suicide by flying to IRS building. Should IRS stop collecting tax for two years?

Yes, that would be very good.

Same thing been going on here for years. I guess Spain decided to use some of our American Kool Aide to make their sangria.

All economic pain of this nature is a failure of society to govern itself properly. By stopping foreclosures, they are putting a temporary band aid on the pain, but it is no long term solution.

If someone is addictive to drugs, the most comfortable way to reduce the pain is to give him more drugs.

(As the Spaniard in the list)

- Yes, Spain is being ruled by conservatives, but they are also sensitive to the people's social pressure.

- Believe it or not, culture still matters, and people have the mentality of their house as their life project. Just like that German millionare who committed suicide just for loosing a few millions.

- Now evictions are beginning to affect the good old middle class. So far, it has been mainly for the immigrants that came as construction employees.

- Unfortunately, there is not a non-recourse system. People has to pay for their debts till they die.

- Working class (non-skilled) incomes

btw, in case is not clear.

the evictions will be suspended only into cases of 'extreme necessity'. Of course, this is to be defined later as politic games find convenient.

I'd say you can do worse things as a safety net policy.

"From each according to his ability, to each according to his government connections". - Our system.

Don't like either slogan, collectivism is full of crap, and so are the political fraudsters.

Well my forefathers and mothers lived in caves, had no starbucks, and they could kill democrats on the spot without insulting the neigboring tribe. They had low HOA fees and could hunt within meters of their cave entrance.

We did not have "homes" until about 2000 bc. Why kill yourself over something like losing your home?

Don José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero is a member of the Spanish Socialist Workers' Party (PSOE). He was elected for two terms as Prime Minister of Spain, in the 2004 and 2008 general elections. On 2 April 2011 he announced he would not stand for re-election in the 2011 general election. After the crushing defeat his party suffered in the elections, he left office on 21 December 2011.

Mariano Rajoy Brey is the current Prime Minister of Spain, appointed since 21 December 2011 and is chairman of the People's Party since 2004.
