Creixement vs estancament

Original post and comments at Quina mandra!


Les imatges són espectaculars i reflecteixen el grau d'inversió en infrastructures viàries a la corona metropolitana de la capital espanyola i a l'àrea metropolitana de Barcelona. Sense entrar en responsabilitats -que de fet són òbvies, per una qüestió de competències- és interessant fer palès un i altre cas perque no hi hagi dubtes sobre quina és la prioritat i en perjudici de qui resulten aquests interessos. Els que ens consideren, als independentistes, uns radicals, algun dia
m'ho hauran d'explicar. Amics "no radicals", sense infrastructures no hi ha indústria, i sense indústria no hi ha feina. Aneu-hi pensant, però sisplau, feu-ho de pressa...

Growth vs stucking

The picture shows how differently the metropolitan area of the Spanish capital city and that of Barcelona have grown in the past 15 years. This is of course a problem of investment and as a result of a commitment by the Spanish government, which gives top priority to Madrid. The reasons to do so are complex but, at the same time, quite easy to understand: you make of Madrid the most attractive area in Spain (in terms of industry; and naturally infrastructures are a must to attrack investment) and, thus, take power from Barcelona, capital of Catalonia, which is one of the pain in the ass "regions" for Spaniards. Intelligent game on their side, let's hope there will be someone in Catalonia who will know how to play more intelligently.
