People in Spain are very used to talk about cousins. For centuries, when spring comes they always say that cousin Vera comes.

But, of late, they also talk in the news a lot about another cosin. In this case is the cousin of Riesgo. They did not mention his or her name but English newspapers use to call him or her just Yield.

While everybody loves cousin Vera, the cousin of Riesgo is hated very much and much is said about him. Or her.


This post is a kind of tale. In castilian the spring is calle PRIMAVERA and PRIMA means a FEMALE COUSIN. On the other hand the yield of the Spanish bond in comparison with  the German bond is LA PRIMA DE RIESGO … Riesgo stands for risk.
