This is a very interesting viewpoint about how can a country with all the opportunities that Spain had, waste all and every penny in absurd and lost wars, and be now in a precarious economic situation. It is like it doesn’t just happen to celebrities: whole countries also suffer from some rare disease driven by greed and the desire of having it all and having it all right now. Spain had it all: an endless flow of gold, silver, goods, species and human workforce enough to be the world greatest power for many centuries. And what did they do? They engaged in ridiculous wars, pursuing to invade all the European territories, and in the end, they ended up broke and alone.
