Fracaso de Tendencia Exponencial!

Here's the exponential trend failure of the day. Spanish style!

It looks like Spain's party ended about the same time ours did. Shocking!

Spanish unemployment is at a record 24.6% and unemployment among those under 25 years is nearly 50%. There has to be tremendous social pain involved in that. Spain's history in the last century was brutal, and despite a brief period of prosperity, one might almost say illusory prosperity, this century is looking grim as well.
Thinking about the drought and its impact on crops in the US, I am wondering what higher food costs will do to magnify that pain.
Spain might get it's bailout, but the prospects for the next year are dismal at best.

Too many Titanics; not enough bilge pumps. Sigh.
