El artículo escrito por el doctor Jaime Gutiérrez Góngora publicado en La nación el 10-02-14 “Riqueza: La palabra prohibida” nos recuerda cómo y quienes son los que repiten una y otra vez manipulando a la masas que ser rico es malo, solo el título del escrito de Gutiérrez Góngora encierra mil cosas.

¿Por qué la palabra riqueza resulta casi prohibida en las campañas políticas? ¿Por qué se ha satanizado que ser rico es malo? ¿Quiénes son los responsables de esas ideas?

FOCUS ON RETAIL : Retail Apocalypse? Major Chains Closing Hundreds Of Stores

Posted about 23 hours ago

(Daniel Jennings) Hundreds of stores across the nation are closing as some of America’s most famous retailers struggle to stay in business.

The country is facing what CNBC has labeled a tsunami of store closings and blogger Michael Snyder has called a retail apocalypse.

Sears, K-Mart, Best Buy and JC Penney are among the big names in American retail that could disappear in the coming years, according to investment analysts. If or when these chains collapse, thousands of jobs and hundreds of millions of dollars in sales tax revenue will disappear.

Major retailers are posed to close 300 stores in the United States this year and that is only the beginning, CNBC reported. 

Up to half of the retail stores in the United States could disappear in the next 10 years, analyst Michael Burden told CNBC.

“Shoppers will likely see an average decrease in overall retail square footage of between one-third and one-half within the next five to 10 years, as a shift to e-commerce brin…
