Barcelona front page of NY Times

Well, looks like we've done it again, Barcelona on the front page of newspapers worldwide, but not held during these days one of the most important congresses related to new technologies or the impact this event has on the local economy, no, once again we are news disturbances generated by a band of fanatics, who covered the mass engaged in urban terrorism with the approval of everyone.

Everyone should be aware that the picture, its characters, they are still, despite the violence they contain, mere puppets of a much more elaborate joke.

On one hand, the mass outrage, they raise rates by pursuing higher education. In Spain, ignorance leads us to hope that everyone has a college degree, in 60 years we have gone from being illiterate to high school graduates struggling to be civil servants or professionals prepared to nurture companies from outside our country, this is called a good investment.

In addition it is intended that social mobility are paid by the state, ie, everyone. It might seem redistributive, but once again the wrong focus, redistribution is allow the best prepared reach the highest levels of knowledge without the cost prevents them from reaching, the rest, if you want, you pay. That is, more scholarships and the rest to pay the real cost of education. We live in a country where the middle and upper middle class send their children to school concerted, good private schools because we pay the rest part. That each hold your candle stick, who can afford private schools that pay and who not, to the public.

Of course, we are in the country of half solutions, as we can not make a local finance law allow municipalities are financed by selling land and urbanized municipality, as we can not afford the education necessary public squares, to subsidize private schools.

That good business is done with the money of others. Almost I prefer the American model, it will be unfair in some respects, but ultimately prevails further effort and perseverance in his work as a true redistribution of income, the other are front pages.
