A beggar holds a plastic cup as people walk past her in Madrid
A beggar holds a plastic cup as people walk past her in central Madrid, October 10, 2013. Beggars, dog-lovers and fortune-tellers who venture onto Madrid's busy streets may soon find themselves out of pocket as authorities in the city and elsewhere seek creative solutions to their financial problems.The Madrid council laid out plans this week to levy fines of 750 euros ($1,000) for public activities including soliciting for money outside shopping centres, feeding or washing dogs, reading tarot cards and performing acrobatics with a bike. Saddled with huge debts since a property bubble burst in 2008, Spain's autonomous regions and town halls have seen core revenues fall as unemployment holds stubbornly above 25 percent and corporate investments dry up. Many owe millions to service suppliers and staff. REUTERS/Susana Vera (SPAIN - Tags: POLITICS SOCIETY POVERTY BUSINESS)
