Spain's economy minister claimed Monday that the Catalan independence crisis had cost the country ""1 billion"" euros as fallout from the turmoil continued to hamper growth in the wealthy region.
Luis de Guindos said the slowdown in growth in Catalonia Artie Burns Jersey , which accounts for about a fifth of Spanish GDP, was hampering the eurozone's fourth-largest economy as a whole.
""Catalonia used to have growth above that of Spain. It was one of the drivers of the Spanish economy,"" he told Spanish radio.
""However, in the fourth quarter, it's become a burden.""
De Guindos estimated the crisis could ""easily have cost a billion euros [$1.2 billion].""
Spain was plunged into its deepest political crisis in decades when separatists in Catalonia's regional government declared independence in October following a banned referendum on the topic.
Led by Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy Joshua Dobbs Jersey , Madrid invoked powers provided for by Spain's constitution to suspend the region's cherished autonomy, sack its government and parliament, and call fresh regional elections in a bid to head off the secession drive.

More than 3,100 companies have already moved their legal headquarters from Catalonia, including major banks and retail firms.
De Guindos blamed ""enormous uncertainty James Conner Jersey , concern and a loss of confidence generated by the previous (Catalan) government.""

BOSTON Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas will miss the remainder of the NBA playoffs after aggravating a hip injury during Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals, the team announced on Saturday.
Thomas initially injured his hip in the third quarter of a game against the Minnesota Timberwolves on March 15, forcing the All-Star to miss the next two regular-season contests.
The 28-year-old Thomas aggravated his specific injury — officially labeled as a right feboral-acetabular impingement with labral tear — during Game 6 of the second-round series against the Washington Wizards on May 12.
“Isaiah has worked tirelessly to manage this injury since it first occurred,” said Dr Brian McKeon James Washington Jersey , the Celtics’ chief medical officer. “The swelling increased during the first two games against Cleveland, and in order to avoid more significant long-term damage to his hip, we could no longer allow him to continue.”
A femoral-acetabular impingement means that the ball joint in the hip socket is not moving freely around the cup in which it resides.
Thomas did not travel with the team to Cleveland for Game 3 today (China time). The Cavaliers lead the series 2-0.
Thomas, who averaged 28.9 points per game during the regular season, scored 19 total points in the first two games against Cleveland. Marcus Smart started for Thomas in the second half of Friday’s 86-130 blowout loss to the Cavaliers.
