EL MUNDO SHOWS THE REALITY OF THE JOBLESS PEOPLE IN SPAIN

Files under General | Mar 2nd

LASS CARACAS DE LA CRISIS

Just the faces.

The names.

And how much time without a job.

That’s direct.

Dramatic.

Moving.

Disturbing.

And compelling.

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.

Well done!

NB: INNOVATION’s Chiqui Esteban shows here the jobless figures in another dramatic way:
