Se nøje på de hulking containerskibe, der forlader havnen i Barcelona disse dage og du kan fange et glimt af en national økonomi overskrift langsomt mod genopretning.

 

De fleste fartøjer forsvinder i horisonten sidde en brøkdel dybere i vandet end den dag de ankom: for hver fire containere lastet med varer, som losses, Barcelona nu sender seks fuld containere i udlandet. Et par år siden, før starten af Spaniens brutale afmatning gik trafikken i anden retningen. Skibe ville ankomme fyldigere end de venstre, mens havnens spidery havn kraner arbejdede overarbejde for at tilfredsstille Spaniens skyhøje efterspørgsel efter varer fra hele verden.

 

"Jeg har arbejdet i denne port i 22 år, men jeg har aldrig set sådan en stigning i eksporten. Og heller ikke har nogen anden,"siger José Alberto Carbonell, generaldirektør for Port de Barcelona. I de første otte måneder af året, med den spanske økonomi stadig kontraherende, nød havnen en 8 procent stigning i eksporten. Forsendelser til øst Asien, Latinamerika og andre hurtigtvoksende områder steg specielt kraftigt med containertrafik Algeriet op 22 procent, Brasilien op 15 procent og Mexico op 13 procent.

 

Fra sit syvende etage kontor med udsigt over Middelhavet, har hr. Carbonell en privilegeret udsigt ikke blot af Ebbe og flod af Barcelonas havn trafik, men også staten af Spaniens økonomi i almindelighed. Havne, siger han, tjene som en "termometer" af et lands økonomiske sundhed – og han har for nylig vist umiskendelige tegn på bedring. "Der er en meget bedre humør nu end sidste år," siger han. "Folk er ikke euforisk. Men der er ikke længere tvivl over for de virksomheder, vi arbejder med overlevelse".

 

Fra støj og travlhed i Barcelona dokker til tykt gulvtæppe ro, der indhyller Madrids ledende bankfolk, er meddelelsen kommer fra landets erhvervsledere den samme. Spanien, siger de, ikke kun vej ud af recessionen, men det har brugt de barske år for nedturen for at gøre økonomien mere konkurrencedygtig, mindre afhængige af fast ejendom og mere afhængige af høj værdi eksport. "I de sidste en-og-en-halv år, Spanien har vist vilje til at gøre det rigtige," siger en top bankmand i Madrid. "Uanset om det er nok, jeg kan ikke sige, men der er afgjort blevet bedre."

 

Det er en forbedring, men der har gjort lidt til at løfte den økonomiske elendighed påført millioner af spanierne. Selv i hjertet af Madrid, landets stadig-blomstrende hovedstad, kæmpe besøgende til spot tegn på, at krisen aftagende. Butikker stadig forskallingen på alarmerende tempo, mens Mut i kø uden for byens mange suppekøkkener som længe som nogensinde. I fattigere spanske regioner såsom Andalusien er økonomiske trængsler endnu tydeligere udstillet.

Sherri Figueroa's insight:

(Reuters) - SZITIC Commercial Property Co Ltd, which sold a stake in two of its malls to U.S. private equity firm Carlyle Group LP (CG.O) in May, plans an up to $1 billion Hong Kong IPO as soon as the fourth quarter of 2013, the Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday, citing people familiar with the matter.

 

The Shenzhen-based shopping mall developer hired JPMorgan (JPM.N) and China International Capital Corp (CICC) to handle the initial public offering, the paper said.

 

The deal could come by the end of the year or in the first quarter of 2014, it added.

 

SZITIC sold a 49 percent stake in the malls, located in second-tier cities of Hangzhou and Suzhou, to Carlyle for an undisclosed sum.

Campers in national parks are to pull up stakes and leave, some veterans waiting to have disability benefits approved will have to cool their heels even longer,
Sherri Figueroa's insight:

WASHINGTON (AP) - October 1, 2013 (WPVI) -- Campers in national parks are to pull up stakes and leave, some veterans waiting to have disability benefits approved will have to cool their heels even longer, many routine food inspections will be suspended and panda-cams will go dark at the shuttered National Zoo.

 

Those are among the immediate effects when parts of the government shut down Tuesday because of the budget impasse in Congress.

 

A look at what is bound to happen, and what probably won't:

___

 

THIS: Possible delays in processing new disability applications.

 

BUT NOT THIS: Social Security and Medicare benefits still keep coming.

 

___

 

THIS: Washington's paralysis will be felt early on in distant lands as well as in the capital - namely, at national parks. All park services will close. Campers have 48 hours to leave their sites. Many parks, such as Yellowstone, will close to traffic, and some will become completely inaccessible. Smithsonian museums in Washington will close and so will the zoo, where panda cams record every twitch and cuddle of the panda cub born Aug. 23 but are to be turned off in the first day of a shutdown.

 

The Statue of Liberty in New York, the loop road at Acadia National Park in Maine, Skyline Drive in Virginia, and Philadelphia's Independence National Historical Park, home of Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell, will be off limits. At Grand Canyon National Park, people will be turned back from entrance gates and overlooks will be cordoned off along a state road inside the park that will remain open.

 

"People who waited a year to get a reservation to go to the bottom of the Grand Canyon all of a sudden will find themselves without an opportunity to take that trip," said Mike Litterst, a spokesman for the National Park Service.
