Prensa Circular economy: need and opportunity for Spain

Europe has made the circular economy one of its political priorities and Spain is committed to moving in this direction. This FAES Paper gathers reflections and recommendations on the challenges and opportunities that underlie this paradigm shift.

Prensa "Macroeconomic populism compromises Spain's ability to cope with the slowdown"

2019 llega a su fin caracterizado por una desaceleración en las principales zonas económicas del mundo, si bien los indicadores alejan una recesión inminente. En este contexto el caso de España merece especial mención, ensombrecido por los posibles acuerdos entre izquierda y extrema izquierda. La preocupación que genera la apuesta por el populismo macroeconómico, unida a la situación fiscal y a la insostenibilidad de la deuda pública, llevan al profesor del IE Business School Ignacio Muñoz-Alonso a alertar de la comprometida situación en la que quedaría España para afrontar la desaceleración.

Prensa “An alliance of constitutional parties would be the most desirable, but it cannot be headed by the one who is doing the counter-alliance”

"We are vertiginously going to a crisis of the constitutional system with devastating consequences and the Spaniards have to know it. The crisis of the Transition system, of the constitutional system, means the disintegration of the system"

With the backdrop of an accelerating economic slowdown, the curtain has been raised for us to see the spectacle of two politicians paired by their ambition and weakness. They star in a play between entanglement and drama. What has little mystery is the outcome. It will end badly, even if not soon.

Prensa José María Aznar:“The most damaging option for Spain”

José María Aznar has assessed the announcement of the pre-agreement between PSOE and Unidas Podemos. "After elections to which we should never have been called, and if we were, it was for the exclusive personal interest of the person who did it, there were two options: a great constitutional agreement or a great radical agreement that includes communists and independentists. Everything seems that the worst possible formula has been chosen, and that will have very serious consequences from a constitutional, economic and social point of view. The most damaging option for Spain's interests".

Prensa Tax Reform In Spain: A Critical Perspective on the Government?s Project

The main developed countries are reliving the debate on the reform of their tax systems, within the context of a head-on battle against the public deficit and criticism of high levels of overall fiscal pressure. The latest developments in Public Taxation have delimited the generally accepted objectives and requirements that enable us to map out an “overall fiscal model”.

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.

Prensa Indicators of Change: Spain 1996-2004

This book presents statistics on the most important chages in Spanish society during the period 1996-2004, when José María Aznar's popular Party was in government. They have been chosen from more than 500 indicators, and grouped together into a number of subject headings, giving a clear reflection of the meaning of these important years for Spain.

Prensa Unity of the Market in Spain and the Proposal to Reform the Catalan Statute of Autonomy

The relationship between market size and strong economic development has been apparent since the days of Adam Smith. Since then, this idea has been updated and developed further, most notably in an article that appeared in The Economic Journal in 1928, which presented the analytical work of Allyn Young on 172 papeles@fundacionfaes.org the growing economic returns resulting from market expansion.
