Prensa Charlie Hebdo. Paris Jihadist Attack

?One of the Kouachi brothers had received twenty thousand US dollars to carry out an attack, albeit not in Paris but in Yemen, where he had travelled in 2011. Al-Qaeda ordered the attack, but did not coordinate its execution at a military level? ?Out of 49 “Jihadist plots” in Europe between 2008 and 2013, the terrorists were not able to kill in 47, due to their own incapability, or because they were arrested. This information offers rather an efficient image of security services? ?The jihadist threat is difficult to deal with, not only by the French intelligence but by intelligence services worldwide. The United States included? ?In the language of militant jihadists, Westerners are “monstrous creatures” with whom they must avoid any contact to preserve their spiritual purity?

Prensa Ukraine, between Russia and the European Union

“For Russia, Ukraine is crucial in a historical way, in a psychological way (they call it “Little Russia”) and, above all, in a political, economic and strategic way. More importantly, Ukraine is a key country for Russia?s national security”“The battle on the streets of Kiev, which has already claimed many lives and thousands of wounded, is a tragic fact which might lead to a civil war. Ukraine?s army is the largest in Europe after the Russian and can be deployed at any moment”“Vladimir Putin?s strategy regarding Ukraine is the same than that regarding other countries of the former Soviet Union: an indirect control. Russia does not intend to govern Ukraine. But it wants a “negative” control: that Ukraine does not do what Russia does not want it to do”

Prensa The Spanish Economic Model 1996-2004: A Silent Revolution

Between 1996 and 2004, Spain enjoyed the longest period of prosperity in its democratic history. Five million jobs, convergence of up to 98% with regard to the average EU income per capita, low inflation, a favourite destination for foreign investment, reduction of the public debt in terms of GDP, a budget surplus and creation of a Social Security Reserve Fund, are all results of a new economic model introduced by the Partido Popular. The key aspects of this model are described in this book by Lorenzo Bernaldo de Quirós and Ricardo Martínez Rico. The foundations of this new economic model consisted of the following measures: restraints on public expenditure, reorientation of expenditure based on efficiency criteria, reductions in income tax and corporate tax rates, the elimination of certain forms of taxation, privatisation, liberalisation of the goods and services markets, promotion of competition, independent regulatory bodies, labour market reforms and more open economic links with abroad.
