    What would an independent Catalonia look like? – #SaxoStrats
    Most Catalans regard independence from Spain as both a human right and their birthright.

    Disappointingly shallow report. An independent Catalonia would exit the EU, that's a fact. And it would be a country without a single bank, that's a sine-qua-non condition...

    Actually, there are still many pending questions regarding that point. It is highly probable that Catalonia would leave (first) the EU but a vote from EU members...

    Has Italy fallen out of love with the euro?
    The existential challenges to the euro from the European periphery are well known. But more troubling day by day is the realisation that a bigger risk is right at the heart of Europe, in the third largest economy, Italy, where living standards have fallen behind those of European peers and citizens are increasingly disgruntled with the common currency.

    The four million people who fear Brexit the most
    Monday's vote saw Westminster refuse to consider the rights of EU nationals in the UK, clearly preferring the negotiating table as the proper venue for these talks. But what could await this group, as well as the 1.2 million Britons in Europe and the pound, as the Brexit talks play out?

    I am a Scot and personally would prefer Scotland to remain in the UK if for no other reason than saving the scots from themselves.

    Why the Dutch won’t follow Britain’s path
    The Dutch election on March 15 is expected to lead to Geert Wilders' PVV becoming the largest party in parliament. However, due to the party's right-wing policies and its chaotic behaviour in a former coalition, no other big party wants to govern with it. But that is not the only reason why the Netherlands will not leave the Eurozone.
