Paraguay’s economic and political deterioration deserve a closer look

A- A A+

Writing in The Daily Signal, Anthony Kim of the Heritage Foundation recently called for a recognition of ‘Paraguay’s Economic and Political Transformation’, as a South American country positioned for economic and political development.  In his article, Kim states: “[Paraguay] was long one of the poorest and most undemocratic. Yet gradually but surely, Paraguay has accomplished notable political and economic reforms, a transformation that is earning a second look from its allies and potential investors.”
While it is impossible to include every single fact about Paraguay’s socio-economic situation, growing inflation, and ongoing political turmoil, it is essential to note the following:
1. The National Senate Palace in Asuncion was burned down on the night of March 31, 2017, by violent protesters encouraged by leaders of the Authentic Radical Liberal Party (a major opposition party). Over one year later, the building is still closed while only half of the Congressional Palace is operational although its roof is seriously affected by rain and excessive humidity;
2. Extreme Poverty and surprising lack of liquidity among Paraguayans is alarming. Only thirty meters away from the Vice President’s office, on August 30, I ran into four homeless indigenous Paraguayans sleeping on the sidewalk, who could easily be observed from the Vice President’s office;
3. The country’s judicial branch and penitential system are saturated by corrupt Supreme Court judges and dangerous Brazilian common criminals that have swamped Paraguay and continue to be operational even while incarcerated;
4. Paraguay’s immediate former Attorney General Javier Diaz Veron is currently in jail, and his wife is under house arrest. Both are under investigation for money laundering, participation in criminal organization, and influence peddling;

PARAGUAY AND PERU

Political, Social and Environmental Issues.

Book Description: Chapter One examines natural resource management during the settlement and construction of Spanish Peru’s capital city from 1535-1625. Chapter Two discusses how the upstream Pampas basin (Huancavelica) was socially constructed as a water-abundant region to justify building a diversion canal that would conduct water to fulfill the increasing water need for agro exporting Ica. Chapter Three analyzes, from technical and environmental points of view, how the biodiesel and bioethanol production can improve environmental indicators of Peru in comparison with those derived of the use of oil-based products. Chapter Four discusses the reasons and scale of deforestation in both of Paraguay’s very divergent vegetative regions: Eastern Paraguay and the Chaco. Chapter Five analyzes the online practices (through Facebook) of local governments in Paraguay, and to examine the factors that influence these practices. Chapter six covers the current socio-economic reality of Paraguay by sharing valuable information and real life examples that were experienced in the ground by the author over the last year. The final chapter discusses Paraguay’s possible futures, considering authoritarian rule has been the norm throughout Paraguay’s 207 years of independent history

Albania: el laboratorio del narcotráfico europeo

Albania: el laboratorio del narcotráfico europeoEl narcotráfico, exportación de armamentos, tráfico de personas, la inseguridad fronteriza y la corrupción en la función pública ha reinado en la Republica de Albania, en los últimos tres años bajo la gestión del primer ministro Edi Rama y sus seguidores neo – comunistas conducidos y auspiciados por George Soros, un empresario norte-americano que hacía cambio de monedas en el mercado negro de Hungría, en la época bajo la ocupación de Adolf Hitler.Las autoridades del Gobierno de Albania, encabezados por el pintor Edi Rama y otros delincuentes funcionarios públicos solo sirven para un irreversible, vertiginoso enriquecimiento ilícito y por enardecer al pueblo que sigue en miseria en un país en donde la democracia esta reemplazada por un régimen autocrático de narcotraficantes.En este contexto el representante de la Organización para la Seguridad y la Cooperación en Europa (OSCE), Embajador Bernd Borchardt indicó que el dinero de la droga está
siendo lavado a través de la economía informal de Albania; el monto alcanza más de 2 billones de euros que se utilizaran por los narco-traficantes a financiar las campañas políticas de varios candidatos del Partido Socialista, en el trascurso de las próximas semanas.
