Merk_Holl_Cam_Mac_Rouss

Illustration for a leading article (in Spanish) about the present state of the two blocks. While the South American one (Argentina’s Macri and Brazil’s Rousseff in the bottom line) try to overcome falling prices of commodities that are their main exports, they don’t look at their European counterpart as a model. The European Union has […]

Cuba seems to be a key place for Pope Francis. This time for a meeting with Russian Patriarch, Kirill. The encounter has been prepared along twenty years. So, if you are eager to know if Christianity will be unified again after one thousand years of divisions, don’t hold your breathe.

Miami Herald’s Andres Oppenheimer seems to be outraged by the lack of outrage among Trump’s fellow Republicans after his absurd tirade against immigrants from Mexico. I have no doubt about Andres’ sincerity in his indignation with the passive reception given to the clown’s racist outbursts and, worse than that, his rising popularity. What I doubt […]
