Spain economic crisis – Spanish bank needs propping up – Bankia cartoon

spain bank bankia propped up cartoon

Cartoon about the Euro crisis in Spain.
The bailout of the Spanish bank Bankia – cartoon

Cartoon about the financial crisis in Spain, showing the fact that the bank Bankia needs propping up.

The joke in the cartoon is that the building that houses the headquarters of the Bankia bank is of an unusual architectural design, appearing to lean over dramatically.
The cartoon shows a person taking a photograph of another person who is standing so that in the photo he looks as though he is propping up the tower that is the hq of Bankia. This is a direct reference to what tourists do when they are standing near to the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

As well as being a straightforward joke about the leaning tower, the cartoon also has the more serious underlying point in that it asks whether the support given to Bankia will be effective, and whether the effectiveness in holding back the possible collapse of the euro currency will be illusory (shown by the illusion of the man holding up the bank in the photo).

Will Greece drop the euro? The Discobolus (Discus Thrower) in a metaphor for the Greek financial crisis

greece euro crisis discobolus cartoon

Cartoon about the Euro crisis – Greece. Discobolus (Discus Thrower) dropping the euro

Cartoon about the financial crisis in the euro zone, especially in Greece.

Chris Madden cartoon showing the ancient Greek statue or sculpture the Discobolus, or Discus Thrower, by Myron as a metaphor for Greece and the Greek economy, with the discus replaced by a euro coin which the discus thrower has dropped. A pedantic note – the statue of the Discobolus in the cartoon has got the head pointing in the correct direction – most versions of the statue in existence (all are Roman copies of the lost original) are reconstructed from fragments and have the head looking forwards and down, which was found to be incorrect when a nearly complete version was uncovered.
The cartoon is about the possibility of the Greeks dropping the euro.
If Greece drops the euro they will return to the pre-euro Greek currency, the drachma

The dropped euro has cracked the plinth on which the Greek statue stands, and the euro coin is bouncing into a dustbin (which mirrors the shape of the plinth on which the Discobolus stands.

Euro debt crisis cartoon. A balloon in the form of the euro coin

Cartoon. Euro crisis coin balloon

An editorial illustration about the eurozone debt crisis. A cartoon showing the euro coin as a balloon plunging downwards.
The balloon, being made of metal – like the euro coin – is too heavy to fly, and thus it is plunging downwards.

The idea behind the illustration is that the design of the european currency, the euro, is fundamentally flawed as it didn’t take into account fundamental issues of financial structures within the European community (the eurozone) or politics. This is symbolised by the fact that the balloon is incapable of flying.

The flat euro coin has to be transformed into a sphere for it to become a balloon. The ambiguity of the flat form of the coin and the spherical form of the balloon is a deliberate aspect of the cartoon.
