Libertad o Igualdad

Freedom or Equality
Written in Spanish

Capitalism provides more profits and opportunities, while socialism and interventionism fail consistently impoverishing people. However, it should be acknowledged that in many regions of the occidental world, the middle classes are losing their faith in capitalism. Luckily, we are on time to change this. 

 Daniel Lacalle explains our economy in a direct, modern and global way, and remarks the benefits of saving, investment and innovation. At the same time, he presents how capitalism can improve the wellbeing for the general population, and not only for those who benefit from the State, the cronyism or the appropriation of income. 

 Lacalle defends freedom in opposition to those who pretend cutting it for our sake, he goes beyond the defense of an economic system proposing a social model based on responsibility, merit and reward. A stronger social model able to promote any form of interventionism. 

Capitalism is the best way to achieve real equality. Our aim is to preserve great achievements and to develop societies to reach a greater prosperity.

La Gran Trampa

Escape from the Central Bank Trap

Why the economic stimulus plans of the central banks generate a bigger debt instead of promoting growth? 

 This book tracks the race to zero generated by the massive expansive economic policies conducted around the world. It goes from the relative success of the quantitative easing of the Federal Reserve until the unquestionable failure of the Abenomics formule and the BCE plan. 

 In this process, the bond yields have dropped, the stock valuations have boomed, and the junk bonds have been negotiated with the lowest yield in history. Debt has increased massively, but growth, employment and productivity are still moderate. 

 Lacalle also adresses how countries can escape from the liquidity trap managed by the Central Bank and, at the same time, how investors can benefit from the likely impact on the equity and bond markets of the end of these expansive economic policies.
