The Hobbit: a couple of movies are coming!

"LOS ANGELES, Dec 18 (Reuters) - Director Peter Jackson, New Line Cinema and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc said on Tuesday they have agreed to make two movies based on the book "The Hobbit" by J.R.R. Tolkien, ending months of legal wrangling."

That means that for 2010 and 2011 the movies should be on your local cinema :)

Best wishes for all of you!

Be prepared: Global warming

It is time for development and growth in Latin America

There is no doubt, for many citizens and lately for many politicians, that closing markets is a way to poorness. Looks to me that Latin America is finding the recipe for success: democracy, open markets, better choices for consumers, more and better education, increasing competitiveness. All against totalitarian leaderships, protectionist regimes and all what Chavez, president of Venezuela, is trying to do.
The first steps towards development will lighten the next steps to the right way. Each time the light will be more powerful and the next steps will be more obvious. The way out of darkness is finally visible for some Latin American countries.
Good samples within the continent will show the right path to other countries and I have finally hope that a more fair society with equal opportunities will arise.

Peru and US signed a "commerce treaty" that improves the condition of Peruvian markets towards a better integration with the worldwide markets of products and investments.

Kiva: a gratifying way of investing

This is a very interesting and creative way of helping entrepreneurs. Kiva transform you in some kind of "business angel" or "investor" in a way that makes you feel proud, interested in the wellbeing of others and without making you to acquire big risks.
You can lend from 25$ and direct it to a case. Then, when the business starts growing then you receive the money back. I think that's a great way of encourage entrepreneurs to grow, show them a way out of poorness and make them to know that many others care about themselves.
