Prensa ANALISYS| Libya Sinks into Chaos, by Carlos Echeverría

/18.03.15/.- We should remain concerned about Libya for a long time yet, and this after four years of riots that began a process of violence which, far from abating, seems to be getting even worse, asserts Carlos Echeverria Jesus, Professor of International Relations at UNED, in this analisys published by FAES.

Prensa Libya Plunges into Chaos

We should remain concerned about Libya for a long time yet, and this after four years of riots that began a process of violence which, far from abating, seems to be getting even worse. The revolts against Muammar Gaddafi were largely carried out by Islamists, exactly as he predicted. Many Westerners chose not to believe him, but today, although nobody wants to admit he was right, it appears that Libya has become a platform to export jihadi activism out of the country while this threat is quickly consuming the country from inside.

In the previous instalment we saw how, throughout the period of expansion, Spain had maintained a positive inflation differential with its main trading partners, while it turned negative with the advent of the crisis, especially when energy was eliminated from the inflation calculation. The reason is that our country has a high external dependence as far as energy is concerned, so the evolution of energy prices is highly conditioned by the evolution of international prices.

/10.03.15/.- The director of the Economic Office of the Prime Minister, Álvaro Nadal, stated that ‘we’ve managed to do more than anyone else with regard to increasing competitiveness, and it is being acknowledged internationally’. ‘Spain is more competitive now than when we entered the euro and wage moderation has been a key aspect of that strategy. For the first time in history, we can increase competitiveness increasing purchasing power with regard to Germany,’ he declared during the launch of the 2015 Index of Economic Freedom, organised by FAES Foundation.

La energía es un factor estratégico y de competitividad para cualquier sociedad y, por sus implicaciones económicas y sociales, precisa de un marco regulatorio adecuado y de una responsabilidad política por parte del Gobierno. La decisión de cerrar la central nuclear de Garoña ha puesto de manifiesto tanto la falta de una política energética en España como la incapacidad del actual Gobierno para tomar decisiones en beneficio del interés general. El XVIII Observatorio Económico de FAES, celebrado el 20 de julio de 2009, reunió a Manuel Pizarro, Juan Velarde, Honorato López Isla, Pedro Rivero y Roberto Centeno para analizar la situación energética en España. Se defendió el uso de la energía nuclear y se reclamó una política responsable a largo plazo que, como elementos clave, busque garantizar la seguridad del suministro, la competitividad y la sostenibilidad.

La energía de fisión nuclear garantiza el abastecimiento energético, es barata en términos relativos, es operativamente segura, se ha demostrado inocua para la salud y se revela ventajosa en términos medioambientales al no generar emisiones de CO2 u otros gases de efecto invernadero. El progreso técnico reporta ya soluciones satisfactorias para los residuos, si bien es necesario seguir reforzando la investigación en este terreno. La elevada dependencia energética española y los compromisos de Kyoto refuerzan sus ventajas para España.
