Inequality and the Internet

Sustainable Development Economics


PARIS – Two schools of thought tend to dominate today’s economic debates.

Also among the One-Hundred and Thirty-Nine candidates in the senatorial race are twelve Senators, who have already served for nine years. As these campaign activities continue throughout the country, the candidates must understand that elections are about issues and civility in the marketing of ideas for the socio-economic well-being of those for whom they want to serve.
