Scottish independence: Why are many Catalans desperately hoping that Scotland will vote 'yes'? (The Independent)

Monday, 18 august 2014 | The Independent
Although we disagree with the emphasis that has been placed on the economic argument, we would like to draw your attention to the following article, published in The Independent on Saturday August 16th, which offers a number of interesting points. Alistair Dawber talks to people in two very different places who are facing strangely similar dilemmas ALISTAIR DAWBER Saturday 16 August 2014 The Independent In just over a month's time, a country that probably doesn't want independence from another will get a vote on whether to separate, and a fiercely autonomous region elsewhere that almost certainly does want to secede from a larger nation won't be allowed to.

Recommended: "The Success of Small Countries" (Credit Suisse report)

Wednesday, 6 august 2014 | Credit Suisse
We recommend the following report by Credit Suisse "The Success of Small Countries (pdf)." More information from Credit Suisse on the study can be found here. Excerpts: ... in a world of free trade, political borders are economically irrelevant and small countries can be as successful as some of the larger ones, that can benefit from a large domestic market. Small countries are more homogeneous and homogeneity plays an important role in determining the success of a country. [+]

Spagna: Mas deciso, referendum Catalogna 9/11 (ANSA)

Sunday, 3 august 2014 | ANSA
Niente accordo in incontro con Rajoy. Premier, è illegale Redazione ANSA 31 luglio 2014 Il presidente della Catalogna, Artur Mas, ha deciso di andare diritto per la sua strada, confermando il referendum per l'indipendenza da tenersi il 9 novembre. Il premier spagnolo Mariano Rajoy ha ribadito, al termine dell'incontro che i due hanno avuto mercoledì a Madrid, che si tratta di una consultazione "illegale". "Vogliamo farlo nella legalità e, per quanto possibile, in accordo con lo Stato, alla britannica", ha aggiunto Mas, alludendo all'accordo dato dal governo britannico al referendum previsto in Scozia il 18 settembre.

Catalogna, scontro Rajoy-Mas sul referendum ma la trattativa continua (Il Sole 24 Ore)

Sunday, 3 august 2014 | Il Sole 24 Ore
Il Sole 24 Ore di Luca Veronese Nessun progresso nel dialogo tra Madrid e Barcellona. Mariano Rajoy e Artur Mas si sono incontrati alla Moncloa senza spostarsi dalle loro convinzioni. Resta totale (e forse insanabile) la rottura sul referendum voluto dalla Catalogna per decidere sulla propria indipendenza. «Il referendum è illegale, non si può celebrare e non sarà celebrato», ha ribadito il premier spagnolo. «Il referendum si terrà il 9 novembre.

The clock keeps ticking in Catalonia

Wednesday, 23 july 2014
With less than four months to go until November 9th, the scheduled date for a referendum on independence in Catalonia, those advocating for a negotiated solution – the so-called "third way" – seem to have lost the battle. In an attempt to secure a compromise that could hold the State together, representatives of influential interest groups in Catalonia, many of them with economic ties to the Spanish public sector, had been pleading with the powers that be in Madrid to make an offer of a better financial arrangement and a larger measure of self-government for Catalans.

El rellotge no s´atura a Catalunya

Wednesday, 23 july 2014
Quan no falten ni quatre mesos per al 9 de novembre, la data fixada per al referèndum sobre la independència de Catalunya, els partidaris d´una solució negociada – l´anomenada "tercera via" – semblen haver perdut la batalla. Els que encara s´esforcen a trobar una fòrmula que faci possible mantenir unit l´Estat –representants de grups d´interessos influents a Catalunya, molts dels quals tenen vincles econòmics amb el sector públic espanyol – continuen les seves ambaixades davant dels poders polítics de Madrid perquè s´avinguin a oferir als catalans un millor tracte fiscal i més autogovern.

El reloj sigue andando en Cataluña

Wednesday, 23 july 2014
Cuando quedan menos de cuatro meses para el 9 de noviembre, la fecha fijada para el referéndum sobre la independencia de Cataluña, los partidarios de una solución negociada – lo que se ha dado en llamar la "tercera vía" – parecen haber perdido la batalla. Quienes todavía se esfuerzan para encontrar una fórmula que haga posible mantener unido el Estado ¬– representantes de influyentes grupos de intereses en Cataluña, muchos de los cuales tienen vínculos económicos con el sector público español – vienen apelando a los poderes políticos de Madrid para que se avengan a ofrecer a los catalanes un mejor trato fiscal y un mayor autogobierno.

In Katalonien tickt die Uhr

Wednesday, 23 july 2014
Weniger als vier Monate vor der für den 9. November angesetzten Volksbefragung zur Unabhängigkeit Kataloniens von Spanien, scheinen die Befürworter einer diplomatischen Lösung ihr Ziel - den sogenannten “dritten Weg” - verfehlt zu haben. Mit der Absicht, einen Kompromiss zu finden, der Spanien zusammenhalten würde, haben Vertreter führender Interessengruppen in Katalonien - viele von ihnen mit wirtschaftlichen Beziehungen zum spanischen öffentlichen Sektor - intensiv mit Madrid verhandelt, um ein Angebot zur Verbesserung des finanziellen Ausgleichs und mehr Selbstverwaltung für Katalonien zu erreichen.

In Catalogna, l’orologio non si ferma

Wednesday, 23 july 2014
Quando mancano solo quattro mesi al 9 novembre, data fissata per il referendum sull’indipendenza della Catalogna, i favorevoli a una soluzione negoziata, altrimenti conosciuta come “terza via”, sembrano aver perso la battaglia. Quelli che cercano ancora di trovare una formula per tenere insieme lo stato – potenti gruppi con interessi economici in Catalogna, molti dei quali vincolati anche al settore pubblico spagnolo – continuano le mediazioni per ottenere da Madrid una controfferta in termini fiscali e di autonomia politica.
