The aim of this chapter is to analyse the relationship between the financial crisis and the real economic crisis in Spain. The main hypothesis put forward by is that financialisation, which lies at the root of the financial crisis, has also implied changes in the real and financial behaviour of private (and public) agents, which explain the extent and prolonged duration of the crisis in European and other advanced economies, in general, and in Spain in particular. With this aim in mind, we first analyse the financialisation process of the Spanish economy, and then its effects on households, non-financial corporations, and the external sector. Finally, we focus on the mistakes in the management of fiscal policy and in the management of the Spanish banking crisis that have helped to deepen the economic crisis.

The objective of the paper is to test the existence of a relationship between the composition of public expenditures and the macroeconomic outcomes (GDP rate of growth, and unemployment and inflation rates) of the European Union member states during the period 1995–2007. We study the existence of clusters of countries with similar structures of public expenditure using multiple factorial analysis and principal component analysis techniques, and we compare the macroeconomic outcomes of the clusters obtained using statistics test of equality of means. The outcomes show that there is no evidence of the existence of a relationship between the structures of the public expenditure and the macroeconomic performances. This leads us to conclude that there is no single optimum model of public spending that warrants the best macroeconomic performance.

Although the Great Recession is a global phenomenon, with roots outside the European Union (EU), its impact has been deeper and longer lasting in the EU than elsewhere. However, the impact of the Great Recession has not been the same in all the European countries. The objective of this chapter is to analyse the different effects of the economic and financial crisis among the European Union member states, focusing on the behaviour of a number of real and financial variables since the year 2003 to evaluate the impact of the crisis. Thus, we will analyse the performance of 17 economic variables grouped into seven categories: economic activity, labour market, income distribution, inflation, balance of payments, public finances, and financial balance sheets of total economy and sectors.
