Pedro Solbes estima que España saldrá de la crisis… el 2010. Por estas razones:
[ .. ] First, Spain is today much better capitalised than in the past. Spanish companies, families and the government have all helped to push up the level of investment in the domestic economy. [ .. ] Second, I want to emphasise the resilience of the Spanish financial system. [ .. ] Third, our financial institutions have made high provisions in the past, and these have been enhanced by the demands of a counter-cyclical dynamic provision introduced a few years ago by the regulator. [ .. ] Fourth, Spain has become a very open economy and our companies are proving to be competitive in all markets. [ .. ] Finally, after many years of prudent fiscal policy, in 2007 the Spanish government delivered a surplus above 2 per cent of GDP and managed to cut its public debt to just 36 per cent of GDP, 30 percentage points below the average for the eurozone. [ .. ] We are convinced that in 2010 our economy will enter a new period of sustainable strong growth benefiting from our structural transformation. [Financial Times, 9 septiembre 08.
