Spain’s Savings Banks Face Consolidation or Insolvency

May 28 (Bloomberg) — Bloomberg’s David Tweed reports from Madrid about the financial position of Spanish savings banks. The so-called cajas helped fuel Spain’s housing boom, accounting for about 50 percent of loans, and since the property crash triggered by the country’s worst recession in 60 years the lenders have been under pressure to merge. The Bank of Spain seized CajaSur on May 22 after the bank lost almost 600 million euros ($742 million) in 2009.

    Spain’s (TALGO) commuter train manufacture has leased the old A.O. Smith turned Tower Automotive(Canada) that has shut operations here to build rail cars for a maligned commuter rail project here (Milwaukee) and also for Oregon.
    One would think with jobs in short supply, Spain would want to keep jobs at home? Here, a company that already builds rail cars for Chicago’s METRA (Super Steel) has at this announcement filed for chapter eleven. Just another thank you to TPTB for reaming us!!

    What a brilliant idea. Give more money to the banks and cut jobs. I would have never have guessed they would have tried that one. Wonder where they got that idea?

    We will see if the citizens will fight back. Fight against the injustices of paying for crimes that they did not commit.
