I have attempted to illustrate the stereotypes brought up by the term "PIGS" coined by the financial press to refer to Portugal, Italy, Greece end Spain. A collection of clichés, both true and incomplete. The same way a travel guide avoids anything seemingly unattractive, this book shows much of what we find embarrassing, oftentimes rightly, and at times unfairly.

Carlos Spottorno’s The Pigs is a tragicomic vision of these countries’ stereotypes, utilizing the format of the influential magazine The Economist.
