Barcelona to Issue Its Own Electronic Currency


Barcelona plans to release its own currency in the coming spring. The money will initially exist only in digital form and will support the regional economy, according to the incumbent mayor. The value of the currency will be pegged to the euro and will begin to reflect the desired independence aspirations of Catalonia, which our computer has been projecting will be the outcome.


For those who are not familiar with the separatist movement there, the issue goes back to the marriage of Ferdinand and Isabella. Isabella was of Castille or Spain proper, and  Ferdinand II was of Aragon, which was Catalonia. The indigenous languages of Catalonia are Catalan and Aranese, whereas Spanish was indigenous to Castille.

Barcelona is perhaps the most beautiful city in all of Europe.
