The open minds of Latin America

The open minds of Latin America

The open minds of Latin America thank you for your caress, the lullaby, the silence, the pause. We thank you for giving our dreams a compass, for giving names to the days, for putting a face to the faceless. All the open minds thank you for the song, for blowing… »

The human being as the central value: a Latin-American prescription for Europe

The human being as the central value: a Latin-American prescription for Europe

The obstinacy of stock-market gurus and their prescriptions for the economic health of different countries are contradicted by the efficacy of the treatment in their populations.
