THE VENEZUELAN GOVERNMENT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE MESS AT THE COLOMBIAN BORDER

In Defense Of Bachaqueros

In the beginning, there were arbitrageurs, those that perform a risk free operation, whereby you take advantage of differences in prices, to buy a good cheaper that you can sell it somewhere else and make a profit. 




These types of arbitrage opportunities may arise because of geographical differences, or due to the presence of borders or even long distances. 


Arbitrage is as old as markets have existed, people are always looking for profit opportunities and if they involve no risk, they become very attractive.


 In general, arbitrage reduces the difference in price between the two items, making markets more efficient. 



If prices are more expensive in Caracas for say lettuce, those that produce lettuce will take their product to Caracas, as long as transportation costs are less than the difference and local prices will drop.









Arbitrage is at least as old as Rome, one of the first few markets that had some level of organization.

Conviasa (V0, Caracas Simón Bolivar) has been "given" the Venezuelan presidential jet, a Fuerza Aérea Venezolana (Maracay) A319-100 CJ, FAV0001 (cn 1468), by president Nicholas Maduro. 







In his address to a meeting of regional mayors and governors in late December, Mr Maduro said:









"I have delivered the presidential Airbus to Conviasa to reinforce its fleet as more aircraft, that we have acquired to optimize the services of the airline, begin to arrive." 







It is uncertain at this time as to how and where the Venezuelan national carrier will deploy the twinjet.

Carta de una Venezolana que vive en Colombia y que me puso a reflexionar…

Gracias Joaquin Samper por compartir ...





La carta fue escrita el 26 de Agosto de 2015 y por motivos que desconocemos un par de horas después Facebook elimino la carta y bloqueo el perfil de la persona que la hizo y responde al nombre de Maria Camila Azuero Lara.


El equipo de TAC3 News rescato el escrito y lo compartimos acá con ustedes. Ojalá ustedes también lo puedan compartir.








CUANDO LLEGUÉ CON MI FAMILIA A COLOMBIA, NOS PUSIERON UNA MARCA ENCIMA QUE AUN NO NOS QUITAN.



Cuando llegué a este país buscando una calma que había perdido en el mío, a mí me marcaron mi casa y a mi misma me pusieron una señal encima desde el primer momento.


Yo quiero decirles a todos que soy venezolana y que vivo en Colombia hace 8 años. Desde el día en que pisé suelo colombiano, mi familia y yo sentimos sobre nuestros hombros la marca que estos colombianos nos pusieron. 




Mi casa misma la marcaron para identificarnos.“Allá viven los venecos…” De ahí en adelante, hemos cargado con esa marca paara donde quiera que v…

Mexico is a major battleground in the global food wars

Don Quijones, Wolf Street

In the last two years, Mexico has become one of the major battlegrounds of the 21st century global food wars.





 On one side of the battle line is Demanda Colectiva AC, a collective of 53 scientists and 22 civil rights organizations and NGOs fighting to protect Mexico’s extraordinary wealth of food crop biodiversity; 




on the other is a coalition of the world’s GMO goliaths led by US agribusiness giant Monsanto.





Their ultimate goal is simple: complete control over the Mexican food chain. And in their bid to achieve it, they can count on the unwavering support of Mexico’s Ministries of Agriculture and the Environment.





On Tuesday they won a vital, albeit not yet decisive, victory when Mexico’s XII District Court overturned Judge Marroquín Zaleta’s 2013 ruling to suspend the granting of licenses for GMO field trials.



In his original ruling, Zaleta cited the potential risks to the environment posed by GMO corn. If the biotech industry got its way, he argued, more than…
