El prestigioso economista Daniel Lacalle nos propone en este ensayo un apasionante viaje alrededor de las principales ideologías que en materia económica y social pergeñan el mundo en el que vivimos. En dicho periplo no sólo conoceremos el propio recorrido ideológico del autor -en el que transitó, tras leer y conocer en persona a sus principales ideólogos, del colectivismo al liberalismo austríaco, plaza en la que izó la bandera de la libertad y la responsabilidad individual-, sino que entenderemos cómo han evolucionado hasta nuestros días las grandes corrientes de pensamiento tales como el colectivismo, el monetarismo o el liberalismo. Asimismo, entenderemos por qué, en los últimos tiempos de crisis económica, política y social, las distintas ideologías se han convertido en argumentos arrojadizos de tantos y tan reconocidos economistas -pues la ideología está siempre presente y emana ineludiblemente en sus planteamientos-, y por qué, a menudo también, dichas ideologías se han erigido en planes de ruta inamovibles al servicio de los más significativos políticos y gobernantes.

Central banks do not print growth. The financial crisis was much more than the result of an excess of risk. The same policies that created each subsequent bust are the ones that have been implemented in recent years. This book is about realistic solutions for the threat of zero-interest rates and excessive liquidity. The United States needs to take the first step, defending sound money and a balanced budget, recovering the middle-class by focusing on increasing disposable income. The rest will follow. Our future should not be low growth and high debt. Cheap money becomes very expensive in the long run. There is an escape from the Central Bank Trap.

El hombre completo es una vieja aspiración que sirve de puente hacia la belleza interior, alguien cuyo atractivo se nos presenta como una roca firme, una antorcha que ilumina, y nos obliga a repensar nuestros criterios, siendo su obra u objetivo más completo e importante, su propia realización personal. Por eso, la felicidad no consiste en vivir bien, es decir, con un alto nivel de vida, sino en saber vivir.

'The emerging rock-star of Europe's anti-austerity uprising.' Daily Telegraph 'A spirited book.' New Yorker In this remarkable and provocative book, Yanis Varoufakis, former finance minister of Greece, explodes the myth that financialisation, ineffectual regulation of banks, greed and globalisation were the root causes of both the Eurozone crisis and the global economic crisis. Rather, they are symptoms of a much deeper malaise which can be traced all the way back to the Great Crash of 1929, then on through to the 1970s: the time when a Global Minotaur was born. Today's deepening crisis in Europe is just one of the inevitable symptoms of the weakening Minotaur; of a global system which is now as unsustainable as it is imbalanced. Going beyond this, Varoufakis reveals how we might reintroduce a modicum of reason into what has become a perniciously irrational economic order. An essential account of the socio-economic events and hidden histories that have shaped the world as we now know it.

Vintage Feminism: classic feminist texts in short form WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY NATALIE HAYNES When this book was first published in 1949 it was to outrage and scandal. Never before had the case for female liberty been so forcefully and successfully argued. De Beauvoir’s belief that ‘One is not born, but rather becomes, a woman’ switched on light bulbs in the heads of a generation of women and began a fight for greater equality and economic independence. These pages contain the key passages of the book that changed perceptions of women forever. TRANSLATED BY CONSTANCE BORDE AND SHEILA MALOVANY-CHEVALLIER ANNOTATED AND INTRODUCED BY MARTINE REID

In the 21st century Catalonia needs infrastructure that is conceived and managed with a global vision, to take advantage of opportunities that today are equally global: the new economic geography of the world offers the coast of Catalonia and Valencia opportunities of the first magnitude, thanks to the recovery of the Mediterranean's strategic value in world trade. The Mediterranean sea is on course to claim the highest volume of maritime trade in the world in the 21st century. This anticipated expansion will be due in part to the growth of the Asia-Europe trade corridor, complemented by the proposed Suez Canal enlargement. The Catalan ports of Barcelona and Tarragona and the port of Valencia offer the most efficient and cost-effective entry ports on the Mediterranean, and are poised to gain ascendancy over other European ports offering comparable services. Economists and business leaders predict that Asia will shortly be the main industrial platform in the world, while Europe will become the world's largest consumer market. Forecasts of the consequences of this phenomenon for Catalonia seem to be on track, given that in 2008 for the first time ever the ports of Barcelona and Valencia outdid the container traffic (measured in TEUs) of the French port of Marseille and Genoa in Italy. Catalonia is the most important industrial region on the Mediterranean, with large modern industrial centres near its ports: the chemical and automotive industry clusters are the Mediterranean's largest, while other ports are mainly dedicated to transhipment traffic or coastal trade. Catalan ports are thus able to add value to semi-manufactured goods imported from the emerging economies in Asia, Africa and Latin America. It is anticipated that over the next century Catalan ports will play a similar role to those of Flanders and the Netherlands, which in the twentieth century were at the forefront of the expansion of trade across the Atlantic. Given these circumstances, it is not surprising that global logistics operators rate Barcelona as the primary and most important entrance port for Asian and African trade with Europe on the Mediterranean sea. "One of the most important books ever written about Spain during the Civil War and the years leading up to it is The Forging of a Rebel by Arturo Barea. More autobiography than novel, the book's three volumes provide vivid accounts of life in Madrid in the early years of the century, of the experiences of conscripts during Spain's African wars, of growing social tension during the Second Republic and of the horrors of war in Madrid." From the Preface by Series Editor Paul Preston, London School of Economics Barea's trilogy The Forging of a Rebel was well received by George Orwell, "An excellent book...Senor Barea is one of the most valuable of the literary acquisitions that England has made as a result of Fascist persecution"; and Gabriel Garcia Marquez, "The best novels written by a Spaniard in Spanish since the Civil War." He is unusual in that he was one of the first Spanish working-class writers, one of the first autobiographers in Spain, and someone who published mainly in English though all his attention was focused on Spain. "De la Mora is clearly one of the most exciting female figures from the Spanish Civil War. Many issues about De la Mora's life and work have remained a mystery. Dr Fox sets out to unravel those mysteries and to elucidate, through her meticulous and brilliant research, the intricate political intrigues that affected De la Mora's life. Of special interest is the provenance of her excellent autobiography on the war, In Place of Splendor, one of the most compelling memory texts about the war." Shirley Mangini, Professor Emeritus, State University of California Her fame seemed guaranteed by the compelling story of her life. She had been an aristocrat turned Communist, a celebrated author, and an international political figure whose acquaintances and collaborators included Stalin, Eleanor Roosevelt, Ernest Hemingway, Tina Modotti, Vittorio Vidali, and Anna Seghers among many others. "Gareth Stockey covers a subject central to Anglo-Spanish relations during the two dictatorships of Miguel Primo de Rivera and Francisco Franco and the tumult of the Second Republic and the Civil War. The book's approachability is enhanced by its highly vivid sense of place and people. It delineates superbly the acute social and economic differences on both sides of the Spanish frontier and does so in a way that clarifies the fluctuations in the close relationship between both communities. Dr Stockey's work is also informed by a real sensitivity to the social impact of diplomatic issues on the population in both Gibraltar and Andalucia."

Modernity was supposed to be the period in human history when the fears that pervaded social life in the past could be left behind and human beings could at last take control of their lives and tame the uncontrolled forces of the social and natural worlds. And yet, at the dawn of the twenty-first century, we live again in a time of fear. Whether its the fear of natural disasters, the fear of environmental catastrophes or the fear of indiscriminate terrorist attacks, we live today in a state of constant anxiety about the dangers that could strike unannounced and at any moment. Fear is the name we give to our uncertainty in the face of the dangers that characterize our liquid modern age, to our ignorance of what the threat is and our incapacity to determine what can and can't be done to counter it. This new book by Zygmunt Bauman one of the foremost social thinkers of our time is an inventory of liquid modern fears. It is also an attempt to uncover their common sources, to analyse the obstacles that pile up on the road to their discovery and to examine the ways of putting them out of action or rendering them harmless. Through his brilliant account of the fears and anxieties that weigh on us today, Bauman alerts us to the scale of the task which we shall have to confront through most of the current century if we wish our fellow humans to emerge at its end feeling more secure and self-confident than we feel at its beginning.

What's Driving Investment in China?

Investment has grown rapidly in China in recent years, reaching more than 40 percent of GDP. Despite good progress on bank and enterprise reforms, weaknesses remain that could contribute to inefficient investment decisions. Manufacturing, infrastructure, and real estate have been the drivers of fixed asset investment. Econometric analysis presented in the paper suggests that manufacturing investment is strongly correlated with firms' liquidity, largely retained earnings. Analysis of residential real estate investment shows that it is weakly correlated with real household income growth and real mortgage interest rates. A policy implication of these findings is that reducing liquidity in firms, for example by requiring state-owned enterprises to pay dividends to the government, and using monetary policy to reduce liquidity increase real interest rates, would slow investment in manufacturing and real estate.
