EURO MARKET: The Baltics are growing after austerity—and they resent Mediterranean bail-outs ...

Latvian lessons




Jun 9th 2012 | from the print edition










IT IS hard to believe, walking past gleaming mansions along the sand dunes of Jurmala, that Latvia has endured a crisis as deep as Greece’s. Latvia’s over-exuberant boom was cut short by the global financial crisis in 2008, bringing a banking crash, a huge budget deficit, a bail-out by the European Union and IMF and one of the harshest austerity regimes in Europe. Unlike Greece, Latvia made the wrenching adjustment with striking speed, and has since returned to robust growth (its prime minister, Valdis Dombrovskis, even managed to be re-elected).


Latvia’s neighbours, Estonia and Lithuania, are also recovering. And the Baltic trio managed it while keeping fixed exchange rates. They offer an example to troubled euro countries of how to carry out an “internal devaluation”. Where Greece may soon have to leave the euro, Latvia wants to join in 2014. Touchingly, some people still think of the single currency as a good thing.

Según definicionabc.com, la palabra turismo engloba a todas las actividades que una persona lleva a cabo cuando realizan un viaje a un sitio diferente del lugar de donde son originarios, cuya finalidad meramente es descansar y divertirse.
Nuestro planeta está conformado por más de 240 países, cada uno con una particularidad propia que lo hace único e interesante para conocer y visitar, lo cual generará un beneficio, tanto para el viajante como para aquel territorio que es explorado, pues se genera una importante derrama económica que ayuda a que ese sitio goce de una buena estabilidad y sobre todo, de mucho prestigio.

Cada año, la Organización Mundial del Turismo (OMT) realiza un estudio para identificar los gustos y las preferencias de todas aquellas personas que tienen la oportunidad de viajar por el mundo, con base en el número de arribos de turistas internacionales a cada país.

Farmers cut mango trees to bury bitter times

Several earth-movers can be heard rumbling in the mango orchards of Talala, the hub of Kesar mango in Junagadh district, uprooting trees at the request of dejected farmers who see no point in continuing with mango cultivation after five straight bad seasons.

According to H H Jasania, secretary of Talala Mango Yard, the current season has been the worst in the last five years, with produce in the entire taluka being merely 15% to 20% of the normal level.





Last year, the production was 35% to 40% of the normal level, which was again less than the previous year’s produce.




Jasania said while mango production has been declining, prices have also dipped. As a result, farmers who have been into cultivating mango for the last 15 to 20 years have lost hope.




“This year, farmers in Akulwadi, Dasapur and many others villages have hired JCB machines (earth-movers) to clear mango trees from their fields,”…
