Quotes

In 1848 Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels explained in the Communist Manifesto that "modern industry has established the world market... The bourgeoisie has through its exploitation of the world market given a cosmopolitan character to production and consumption in every country... In place of the old wants, satisfied by the production of the country, we find new wants, requiring for their satisfaction the products of distant lands and climes. In place of the old local and national seclusion and self-sufficiency, we have intercourse in every direction, universal inter-dependence of nations."
"The government will start a dialogue with both political parties and social partners to hear, debate, and alter the document which will then go back to the council of ministers" he said
It said: "Comparing to the previous year, the improvement exhibited in the 2013 balance was largely due to the increase in the revenue from taxes and social contributions, partly reflecting the extraordinary revenue associated with the one-off debt regularization scheme for outstanding tax and social security contributions, amounting to EUR1.28bn."
Antonio Eusebio, socialist leader in the Algarve, considers this new attitude of cooperation and cross-border dialogue "truly strategic for the proper utilisation of funds under the next Community Support Framework 2014-2020."
