Those of you who frequent or occasionally visit our website or Facebook are probably pretty familiar with what is going on there. Those who don’t probably enjoy sitting back, relaxing and reading the paper instead of getting online to get their news, and aren’t too worried about what’s going on our website.
However, I think a recent addition to our blog section is worth some mention here in the newspaper. An economics student from?Uruguay, Gabriel Najman Vieites, has recently started blogging for us. For the most part, he intends to talk about culture, daily activities and the general hustle and bustle of our sister Montevideo, but this week he started with something a little different.
He’s cited an article which refers to a study done by The Heritage Foundation, analyzing Uruguay’s economic situation through a number of lenses.
Personally, I found this to be an interesting read. We spend a lot of time talking about our own economy, and hearing about disasters in places such as Greece, but it isn’t often we have discourse or at least educate ourselves about the economies in other foreign countries.
Uruguay is currently working hard to build a strong economy, and from the looks of the article, they’ve come a long way. Have a look; if nothing else, the article gives a good indication of how we measure economies.
