New PDF release: El gran salto (Spanish Edition)

By Pablo Rojo

Default “transitorio”, cepo al dólar, inflación, recesión, déficit monetary, desempleo, corridas cambiarias. Es indudable que una nueva obstacle se está gestando, como las que recurrentemente hemos padecido los argentinos en las últimas décadas, empujando a millones de compatriotas a l. a. exclusión. Nada podría generar más ansiedad. Sin embargo, el nuevo libro del prestigioso economista Pablo Rojo sostiene que esta vez superaremos el peligro de los angeles caída y tendremos l. a. oportunidad de sentar las bases de una economía dinámica, estable e inclusiva. En los próximos veinte años los angeles Argentina puede ubicarse nuevamente entre las primeras economías del mundo. En un mercado donde varios cientos de millones de personas se integran cada año a los circuitos de consumo en China, India, el sudeste de Asia y últimamente en África, nuestro país posee los angeles “tríada mágica” de l. a. abundancia: alimentos, energía –shale oil y shale fuel– y minerales –litio–. Dios es argentino. Es posible tomar el camino de una sociedad de asistidos y cortesanos o construir una economía inclusiva fundada en el trabajo productivo. l. a. multiplicación de rentas extractivas del campo, de los angeles minería y de los hidrocarburos nos confronta a un futuro con opciones. Noruega o Venezuela, de nosotros depende. El gran salto no es un libro de teoría económica ni de política internacional, no es un trabajo académico ni está dirigido al círculo cerrado de las dirigencias; es un ensayo luminoso, que permite poner en perspectiva nuestro pasado y entender las fuerzas que le dan forma a nuestro futuro. Y prueba, de manera contundente, que los mejores años de nuestro país están justo delante, al alcance de nuestras manos, para nosotros y para nuestros hijos.

Download e-book for iPad: Soziale Veränderungen in der südafrikanischen Gesellschaft by Martin Hiebsch

By Martin Hiebsch

Bachelorarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich Soziologie - Soziales process, Sozialstruktur, Klasse, Schichtung, be aware: 1,3, Universität Osnabrück, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: „Dass im Land der Apartheid1 eine liberale Demokratie etabliert werden konnte, gehört sicher zu den bedeutendsten Ereignissen des 20. Jahrhunderts. Es ist ein Meilenstein in der Geschichte des Kampfes gegen Kolonialismus und Rassismus und für die Verbreitung von Demokratie auf der Welt.“ Südafrika ist von einer paintings air of secrecy umgeben und besitzt ein politisches process, welches als nachahmenswert und exemplarisch gilt. Trotzdem wurde das Land am Kap von dem südafrikanischen Intellektuellen Breyton Breytonbach einst als vergiftetes Paradies bezeichnet. Ein Widerspruch, der es erfordert, die Gesellschaft dieses Landes genauer zu betrachten.
Nach Meinung vieler Experten ist es unbestritten, dass die neuen Regierungen erhebliche Erfolge in der Außenpolitik und bei makroökonomischen Zielen wie einer niedrigen Inflation und einem geringen Haushaltsdefizit erzielen konnten. Die innere gesellschaftliche Stabilität dagegen ist gefährdet. Viele qualifizierte „weiße“ Fachkräfte verlassen das Land und wichtige Aufgaben in Wirtschaft und Verwaltung werden mit ungenügend ausgebildeten „Schwarzen“ besetzt. Die neuen Quotenregelungen haben dazu geführt, dass einzelne Aspiranten in den Kreis der Elite aufgenommen wurden und in der Verwaltung eine organisierte Beteiligung „schwarzer“ Südafrikaner durchgesetzt wurde.
Teile der Stadt- und Landbevölkerung, die damals viele Kilometer zurücklegen mussten, um an Wasser zu kommen, wurden mit fließendem Wasser versorgt. Menschen, die zur Zeit der Apartheid unter unvorstellbaren Bedingungen lebten, wurden schlichte Behausungen gebaut. Die Verbesserungen bei der Grundversorgung im dörflichen Gesundheitswesen, dem Bildungswesen, und dem Zugang zu sauberem Trinkwasser, Strom und Telefon sind in der öffentlichen Wahrnehmung jedoch von negativen Entwicklungen überschattet worden.7 Die Errungenschaften der Post-Apartheid-Ära werden nur von denen, die auch von ihnen profitieren, als solche empfunden. Es ergibt sich die Frage danach, ob es sich bei den forcierten Besserungen um mehr als einen Versuch der neuen Regierung handelt, mit kurzfristigen Experimenten die gemachten Versprechungen zu erfüllen. Die sozialen Veränderungen in Südafrika im Laufe der vergangenen sechzehn Jahre können einen Aufschluss darüber geben, inwiefern die Gesellschaft von der Abwahl des totalitären Regimes und der Einführung von Demokratie profitieren konnte und sind daher von wissenschaftlicher Bedeutung.
