Budgets deserves an amendment to the whole. The Spanish economy has sufficient springs to improve its behavior and they can only be activated with orderly, stable political action supported by the citizens. Extending this legislature is synonymous with postponing for a year the necessary reform process that Spain urgently needs.

Prensa The Freedom Revolution

November 9, 2004 was the fifteenth anniversary of the ?fall? of the Berlin Wall. To commemorate the event, the FAES Foundation organized a series of lectures called ?The Freedom Revolution?, in which twelve figures from the political and intellectual world in the East and West took part. The series was coordinated by Ana Palacio, a member of the Spanish Parliament and former Minister for Foreign Affairs, and it ran from November 2004 to May 2005.One of the main theses of the ?Freedom Revolution? is that the Berlin Wall did not collapse of its own accord. The Wall was pulled down by the determination of people who risked their lives in order to regain their freedom. If the Wall fell it was also because of the steadfastness of a generation of politicians who were determined to stop the advance of totalitarian tyranny despite of the incomprehension of a large proportion of intellectuals in the West. These efforts helped to bring freedom and peace to the other side of the Iron Curtain.Some of the eye witnesses of that time, many of whom played key roles in the process, took part in the lecture series and explained their vision of events and their response. Helmut Kohl, Bronislaw Geremek, Giovanni Sartori, Nicolas Baverez, Carlos Alberto Montaner, Jesús Huerta de Soto, Francis Fukuyama, Guy Sorman, André Glucksmann, Richard Perle, Joseph Weiler and Christopher DeMuth took us through what happened in the Freedom Revolution. Their words, their memories and their teachings, given in the Great Hall of San Pablo-CEU University, are gathered together in this volume, which also includes the introductions made by José María Aznar, AnaPalacio and José María Lassalle.The FAES Foundation would like to give special thanks to Noah Clarke, Carmelo López-Arias, Elena Segura, Jessica Zorogastua and Miguel Ángel Quintanilla Navarro for their work in putting together this publication.We would also like to thank the Rector of San Pablo-CEU University, José Alberto Parejo Gámir, for the magnificent facilities offered by the university, which made this lecture series possible.

Prensa El camino a la democracia en España. 1931 y 1978

A lo largo del siglo XX, en dos ocasiones intentaron los españoles instaurar una democracia sólida: en 1931, con la Segunda República, y en la transición que tuvo lugar tras la muerte de Franco (1976-1978). ¿Por qué fracasó la primera y tuvo éxito la segunda? ¿Cómo logró la Constitución de 1978 organizar un régimen político estable y pluralista? ¿En qué se diferenciaron los procesos? ¿Qué había cambiado en la sociedad española? ¿Por qué era tan importante que la nueva democracia fuera distinta de la que republicanos y socialistas fundaron en 1931?

La Política de Cohesión financiada desde el presupuesto comunitario es beneficiosa para todos los países de la Unión. Permite, por un lado, a medio y largo plazo, un proceso de convergencia real de los países y regiones más pobres, aunque supone también importantes ventajas competitivas para los más ricos. Sin embargo, si las políticas regionales no van acompañadas de las reformas estructurales necesarias corren el riesgo de pretender hacer de la subvención la principal fuente de renta de amplias capas extensas de población con carácter permanente, pervirtiendo así la naturaleza y objetivo de los fondos.
