¿Debemos a China la globalización? Así era la ruta de la plata en el SXVI | Economia Home Surge una nueva teoría que señala a China como el artífice de la primera globalización Cuando hace unos días el presidente chino, Xi Jinping, tomó la tribuna del Foro Económico Mundial en Davos, más de uno se sorprendió al oírle pronunciar un encendido alegato a favor de la globalización y del libre comercio. Pero aunque a muchos sus palabras les sonaron contradictorias, China lleva siglos siendo uno de los protagonistas principales del comercio internacional, y hay expertos que consideran al país asiático -junto a la España e Hispanoamérica del siglo XVI- el artífice de la primera globalización de la Historia. Es el caso del estadounidense Peter Gordon y el español Juan José Morales, autores del reciente libro La Ruta de la Plata (Ed. Penguin). Una vez al año, un galeón iba de Manila a Acapulco con esas mercancías, que luego eran trasladadas al puerto de Veracruz, en el mar Caribe, para ser embarcadas en la Flota de Indias rumbo a Sevilla o Cádiz.

You need to do this even if you have previously had a residence permit card, as the information is not saved.

Heroínas olvidadas: científicas de la II República No te aísles, no te encierres en ti misma, sal, pasea, intenta hablar con tus compañeras, que Ulises fue sabio porque viajó. Este era el consejo que Manuel Bartolomé Cossío le daba a su pupila Dorotea Barnés cuando ella realizaba una estancia en el Smith College, en Estados Unidos, para ampliar su formación científica. Corría el año 1930 y Dorotea disfrutaba de una pensión de la Junta de Ampliación de Estudios (JAE), institución creada en 1907 a raíz de la concesión del Premio Nobel de Medicina a Santiago Ramón y Cajal, que fue su presidente. Por deseo expreso de Castillejo, hubo mujeres entre los beneficiarios de los programas de la Junta. ¿Qué fue de estas heroínas olvidadas? En unas oposiciones a catedrático de universidad celebradas en 1940, el tribunal prefirió dejar una plaza desierta antes que permitir que fuera ocupada por una mujer Algunas de estas pioneras llegaron a mostrar una clara sintonía con el régimen franquista, por lo que no tuvieron que exiliarse ni fueron purgadas.

The Association of Commonwealth Universities El científico rojo al que perdonó Franco Corría el año 1922 y los alumnos de Santiago Ramón y Cajal se reían de él en su cara. El egregio ganador del premio Nobel, de fama mundial tras descubrir las neuronas del cerebro, intentaba controlar a sus desbocados discípulos de primer curso de Medicina en Madrid. Uno de ellos era Rafael Méndez. Rafael Méndez llevó a cabo misiones secretas por medio mundo para intentar comprar armamento para la República durante la Guerra Civil “Casi todos estábamos distraídos mientras aquella gloria de la ciencia explicaba sus portentosas clases. Rafael Méndez, nacido en la localidad murciana de Lorca en 1906 y fallecido en Ciudad de México en 1991, se dibuja a sí mismo con un miembro más de “la juventud de entonces, mal preparada, poco estudiosa, reflejo de la situación del país en la despreocupación y el atraso”. Rafael Méndez era hijo de un hombre que aprendió a leer cuando tenía 22 años, al casarse con una mujer que sí sabía leer. “Viví atormentado durante la guerra de España.
