É tentador culpar os ricos pela injustiça social. É comum ouvir que o 1% das pessoas mais ricas do mundo atingiram sua riqueza à custa dos 99% mais pobres. Na realidade, as coisas são muito mais complicadas do que isso.

Corruption is the worst enemy of Social Equity

It is tempting to blame the rich for social injustice. It is common to hear that the 1% richest people in the world attained their wealth at the expense of the 99% poorer.

Os benefícios do ômega-3, sem retratação

Costa Rica, de camino a Argentina, pasando por Grecia

El gran problema no es ni siquiera el déficit fiscal, sino la deuda del gobierno costarricense que asciende al 50% del PIB. El pueblo es adicto al dinero de otros y por ende, el gobierno es adicto a pedir prestado para sostener lo insostenible.
