Just the faces.
And how much time without a job.
In a country with more than four million jobless people.
With a government that ignores the reality.
The New York Times reports:
Spain’s facts are scary: 18.8 percent unemployment; about half the age group under 25 out of work; €600 billion, or $820 billion, in mortgages outstanding after the end of a construction boom two years ago; and a real effective exchange rate that the E.U. Commission says is overvalued by 10 percent.
The startling thing in Madrid is its seeming absence. There’s a kind of lethargy instead. No crash program with specific goals to change the Spanish economy over the next weeks and months is coming from right-wing opposition. And the Socialist government of Prime Minister José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero
So the newsroom of EL MUNDO in Madrid shows the reality.
With this political indictment animated poster.
A “show, don’t tell” way to report.
NB: INNOVATION’s Chiqui Esteban shows here the jobless figures in another dramatic way:
