José Carlos Díez

Economist and best-selling author. Professor at the University of Alcalá (Madrid)

In 1959 there was a 60-point difference between Spain’s per capita income and that of Germany, as is the case with Bulgaria now. Since then, we have lost our fear of globalization, restructured our production system and overcome critical moments equal to or worse than the current one.
