Portugal, back in the frame

Portugal, back in the frame | Adamastor | Scoop.it

The 3-year bond hit 21 per cent on Thursday even as fellow-peripherals as Italy and Spain were tightening considerably. It’s hard to pin this latest bout of skittishness on anything in particular. There’s the general, obvious worry that after the latest round of euro rating downgrades the bailout firewall will have to be built somewhere east of Lisbon. There was also the report of a powerful Portuguese lobbying group warning of an imminent credit crunch, but we’re not sure how much to make of it.

Mário Soares: 'Esta generación de políticos europeos no sabe decir no'

Mário Soares: 'Esta generación de políticos europeos no sabe decir no' | Adamastor | Scoop.it

Mário Soares ha cumplido 87 repletos años: fue antifascista, comunista, detenido 13 veces durante la dictadura de Salazar, deportado y expulsado del país y exiliado en Francia. Regresó a Lisboa a los dos días de la revolución de los claveles. Fue uno de los fundadores del Partido Socialista portugués, ministro de Asuntos Exteriores, primer ministro y presidente de la República. Ha ganado y ha perdido en las urnas: lo ha sido todo en la política portuguesa. Ahora es algo más: una referencia activa, casi indiscutible.
