The aim of this paper is to contrast the theory of purchasing power parity
(PPP) in the case of the Spanish peseta against the dollar, the franc and the
pound. The period of study covers the entire life of the peseta, which allows a
long-term analysis. We use both bilateral and multilateral exchange rates. The
results don’t show evidence of PPP when we use the official exchange rates

‘Environmental sustain ability’, agricultural intensification and water resource development in Sub-saharan Africa
Revista:

Autores:
Philip WOODHOUSE
Resumen:

Progress in achieving the Millenium Development Goals (MDG) in Africa has been undermined by failure to reduce under-nutrition, yet efforts to increase agricultural output are circumscribed by indicators for MDG 7, particularly with regard to maintenance of forested areas and conservation of water resources. This implies that increasing agricultural production must be sought from agricultural intensification.

Autores:
Montserrat MILLET, Patricia Garcia-Duran, Elisa Casanova
Resumen:
Most of the literature on the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) has
assumed that it is an instrument directed at Europeanising neighbours. Through
this policy, the EU would be encouraging its neighbour countries to adopt an
EU-specific economic, and even social and political, model. This is not, however,
the evidence one obtains analysing the EU commercial relations with four of its

PROFITABILITY AND SOCIAL PERFORMANCE OF MICROFINANCE INSTITUTIONS: EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE OF RELATIONS BETWEEN DIFFERENT TYPES OF VARIABLES
Revista:

Autores:
Jorge Gutiérrez-Goiria, Beatriz Goitisolo
Resumen:
Microfinance is often considered a “double bottom line” sector, which
refers to organizations that take care of their financial side and their social
responsibility, trying to give minimum coverage to both. An optimistic vision of
