Writing about the reasons why the sewers spill into the sea when it rains in Badalona is like writing about going back to school, going back to work after the holidays, metro pickpockets or airport strikes. I mean that it is a classic, recurrent, and to a certain extent a tired and useless exercise that

Badalona in ‘ON’ mode

In Badalona things can happen. The City Council has decided to sell a building –“El Peix”– that has no use to see if it can obtain 1.7 M€ and a private person can do something that the city may need. On the one hand, the news is positive. They have made a decision and have

There are several success factors in SMEs and family businesses. They are business organizations that generate employment, but they face the generational change as one of their main challenges. Currently, they create 67% of private employment, with a total of more than 6.58 million jobs, being responsible for 57.1% of the national GDP of the

Homo Culinaris

There are two types of people in the world: those who cook and those who don’t. Which one are you from? Among those who cook there are very militant, those who have learned and usually have a good handful of recipes that they dominate and enjoy inviting friends to the table. In the group of

Creo que antes de ir a la universidad nunca había oído la palabra algoritmo. Ahora la oigo todos los días a todo tipo de conversaciones

Let us ask ourselves

Let’s ask ourselves, for example, if subsidizing rent and explaining that this will emancipate young people is true. Let us ask ourselves if there can be emancipation without good wages. No. And there are no good salaries without good companies. And there are no good companies without policies in favor of their implementation, expansion or

Does GDP make happiness?

Work to achieve “freedom and happiness for all”. This is the reference that the Aragonese president raised during his speech at the inauguration ceremony. He is not the first nor will he be the last political or business leader to place happiness as a horizon when framing the vision, utopian if you will, of his

The city of cities we need

You, like me, are citizens of the big city. From metropolitan Barcelona. From any of the cities that crown it. You, like me, know the problems we have in our cities. Problems that derive from the differences between our neighborhoods, from the differences between our income levels. The debate on the (outdated) instrument of the

Digital Transformation…?

Another article on the great (and perhaps the last) opportunity that the Next Generation EU recovery funds represent? I dare not say anything new. But surely it has been established that one of the fundamental pillars of these funds is digital transformation. All the plans that the member countries must make must meet these conditions
