Prensa FAES REPORT ON INEQUALITY:  Talking about inequality in Spain is talking about the performance of our welfare system

FAES Foundation has launched on Tuesday 30, its strategic report Inequality, Opportunities and the Welfare Society in Spain, which claims that talking about inequality in our country is talking about the performance of the welfare state. In this sense, FAES notes that the duality of the labour market, the performance of the education system, institutional quality and the impact of these three issues on the effectiveness of the welfare state are the main factors explaining inequality in Spain. However, it also states that, overall, Spain is in the intermediate positions of all indicators of inequality, as wealth, consumption, income and poverty rates compared to the EU 15 countries.

News agency dispatch from Thursday 11 December, 2014: ‘Hong Kong police begun clearing today, after more than two months of occupation, the Admiralty site, the central district of the city, where thousands of people camped beside the seat of the local government demanding true democracy in the former colony.’ A couple of things about the so-called ‘Umbrella Revolution’ – the students demanding democracy and universal suffrage in Hong Kong protected themselves from tear gas fired by the police with umbrellas: hence the name – are worth noting: first, the actions of the People's Republic of China with regard to domestic policy; second, a ‘Manual of disobedience’ that could have consequences in the People's Republic of China. First things first.
