Modelling of the European Union income distribution by extended Yakovenko formula

Por • 16 dic, 2013 • Category: Opinion

We found a unified formula for description of the household incomes of all society classes, for instance, for the European Union in years 2005-2010. The formula is more general than well known that of Yakovenko et al. because, it satisfactorily describes not only the household incomes of low- and medium-income society classes but also the household incomes of the high-income society class. As a striking result, we found that the high-income society class almost disappeared in year 2009, in opposite to situation in remaining years, where this class played a significant role.



Recesión en el mundo: Venezuela frente a otra devaluación

Por • 15 ago, 2011 • Category: Nacionales

Así las cosas, la caída previsible de los precios del petróleo inducida por la caída de la confianza en los mercados de deuda pública en Europa y EEUU, pero también en China donde la deuda pública alcanza cerca del 76% del PIB con el agravante que esa deuda es contraída por el sector estatal chino que constituye el 30% del PIB chino (el sector privado chino produce el 70% del PIB), traerá grandes problemas fiscales inéditos en Venezuela y de mayor monta que los impuso la crisis financiera en el 2008 que produjo de inmediato una recesión en la economía mundial que tumbó el precio del petróleo a 38 $/barril, para recuperarse durante el 2010. Recordemos que el Presidente afirmó en noviembre del 2008 que el país estaba blindado contra los efectos de esa crisis.



China unable to rescue global economy

Por • 15 ago, 2011 • Category: Economía

The vast amounts of cheap credit have fuelled unsustainable real estate speculation along with a massive $2 trillion of debts incurred by China’s local governments as they rushed to expand infrastructure and profit from rising real estate prices. Standard & Poor’s has estimated that one third of this debt could turn bad. Overall, China’s total public liabilities are estimated to be 70-80 percent of gross domestic product (GDP).



The next market bubbles: Food and farm land

Por • 28 mar, 2011 • Category: sociologia

People frequently ask me, as someone who has written on market speculation, where the next big speculative bubble is likely to be. Will it be in housing again? Will it be in the stock market? I do not know, though I have some hunches. It is impossible for anyone to predict bubbles accurately. In my view, bubbles are social epidemics, fostered by a sort of interpersonal contagion. A bubble forms when the contagion rate goes up for ideas that support a bubble. But contagion rates depend on patterns of thinking, which are difficult to judge. Big speculative bubbles are rare events. Little bubbles, in the price of, say, individual stocks, happen all the time, and do not qualify as an answer to the question.

Reseña de “Fin de ciclo. Financiarización, territorio y sociedad de propietarios en la onda larga del capitalismo hispano (1959-2010)”

Por • 29 nov, 2010 • Category: Internacionales

Partiendo de un enfoque basado en la crítica de la economía política (y, por tanto, contrario a la tendencia a disociar y oponer Estado y mercado), los autores hacen un excelente esfuerzo de reinterpretación tanto de la historia del capitalismo español



Deep holes in American pockets shock Chinese observers

Por • 26 ago, 2010 • Category: Internacionales

From the perspective of an outsider seeing the changes in China, I often feel a great shock. This is the Chinese preamble written by former Time journalist Joshua Cooper Ramo for his new book The Age of the Unthinkable.



Revolution in the air

Por • 18 ago, 2010 • Category: Internacionales, Política

Time is short. The stakes are enormous. The nation is angry. The jobs are dying. The mood is depressed. Democrats must get off their knees and fight. They should cancel the week of recess before Labor Day, go to the floor of Congress and fight for American jobs, rally the party base, and go to the country with a campaign worthy of the Democratic Party.
