"As economists specialized in macroeconomic/financial stability, and concerned with the well-being of the Spanish economy, we would like to ask for the immediate resignation of Luís María Linde as governor of the Bank of Spain.
His statements about the possibility of a "corralito" (a bank freeze) are extremely careless. They obviously have a political intention, they are in conflict with his mission and they can destabilize the whole Spanish banking system. Central bankers are not in charge of influencing voting decisions. They should instead promote financial stability."
