/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.

Prensa ANALISYS|Electoral Prospects in United Kingdom

/05.03.15/.- FAES foundation has published today an analysis by José Ruiz Vicioso, MA in the History of Political Thought by the University of Exeter, on the uncertain electoral scenario of the UK with conservatives and labours tied in the polls, and an underlying concern on the effectiveness of the system to produce stable majorities.

Prensa Electoral Prospects in the UK

Unless an unexpected change of trend occurs during the election campaign, it seems that, once again, neither conservatives nor Labour will have a sufficient majority in the next British Parliament. The two major parties are still tied in the polls (around 35% of the vote each) and neither of them has managed to stand out above the other in recent months. Typically, and given the characteristics of the British electoral system, the winning party should have a double-digit lead over the second in order to have the necessary majority.

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.

The Spanish economy has a strong degree of momentum in terms of economic growth (above the European average) based on the significant expansion of domestic demand. Over the year and a half in which the present government has been in power, not a single significant economic measure has been introduced, although the effects of previous reforms continue to be felt.
