The unprecedented rise in the Euribor, which is close to 3%, threatens to bankrupt the economy of households with a variable-rate mortgage, which 70% of those mortgaged in Spain have contracted. While waiting for the banks and the Government to specify measures to avoid a wave of evictions, concern is growing about how to face the new mortgage loan installments.

"It is an increase in quotas of more than 50%, something difficult to assume," he explains on the Bolsillo podcast.
