Consider What Game Spain May Be Playing

That Spain will request - likely in weeks and not months - financial aid from its eurozone partners seems a certainty. Why Spain is playing a 'wait and see' game is an interesting question.

My current thoughts are that Spain is waiting on - very likely among other things:

Postponement of dealing with Eurozone and Eurozone country specific problems is, from everything I have read and heard to date, doing nothing but exacerbating what almost certainly is becoming an ever more difficult and 'hard to solve' problem.
