  • Challenges faced by smallholder farmers in a former conflict area in
           Colombia: the case of Montes de María

    • Abstract: This article aimed to identify challenges faced by smallholder farmers in Montes de María, a former conflict area and agricultural sub-region in the Caribbean region of Colombia. Fieldwork (September through December 2014) involved 49 workshops with 49 farming associations from the region. Using participatory rural appraisal, difficulties related to the potential execution of productive projects were identified. The main concerns of farmers were related to the productivity and/or profitability of their projects, the lack of access to technical assistance, credits and markets, and deficiency in basic capital available to the farmers. Despite numerous initiatives in Montes de María, smallholder farmers continue to suffer from poverty and cannot easily support their families through agricultural activities. The main obstacles identified were the need for improved technical assistance, access to credit for investment, and support in the commercialization of agricultural products.Resumen Esta investigación buscó identificar retos enfrentados por pequeños productores en Montes de María, área de postconflicto y producción agrícola en la región Caribe de Colombia. El trabajo de campo (septiembre a diciembre, 2014) incluyó 49 talleres con 49 organizaciones campesinas de la región. Fueron identificadas dificultades relacionadas con la ejecución de proyectos productivos usando el método de evaluación rural participativa. Las principales preocupaciones incluyeron la productividad y/o rentabilidad de los proyectos, la falta de asistencia técnica, créditos y mercados, y la deficiencia en capital básico accesible a los campesinos. A pesar de numerosas iniciativas en los Montes de María, los pequeños productores siguen en pobreza y con dificultad de mantener a sus familias mediante actividades productivas. Los principales retos que deben ser enfrentados fueron mejoras en asistencia técnica, acceso a créditos para inversiones y apoyo para comercializar productos agrícolas.

    • Abstract: Resumen Este artículo reflexiona sobre el proceso de la cobertura mediática o la producción noticiosa, cuyo marco teórico son los estudios en periodismo denominados en la literatura académica como sociología de la producción de noticias o newsmaking, que abarcan temáticas como la selección de la noticia, los valores noticiosos y las rutinas periodísticas.

  • Massive online courses, MOOC: courses for the whole minorities': a
           review from positions about the impact of virtual education and the
           reducing of the social gap

    • Abstract: Resumen Los cursos masivos en línea (MOOC) de momento no cubren con el propósito de vencer la inequidad o la falta de acceso a la educación. Con cerca de 10 de años de evolución, la mayoría de los cursos que se ofrecen son complementarios a una educación profesional y no como opción a esta, por lo que los estudiantes que cursan MOOC ya han tenido la oportunidad de obtener un título universitario. Conviene revisar qué tanto han impactado la realidad de la inequidad en el acceso a la educación y de qué manera las universidades pueden encontrar estrategias para que los MOOC vayan aportando al acceso a educación superior gratuita y de calidad. El modelo merece un replanteamiento para que realmente impacte en las poblaciones más necesitadas y no en una inmensa minoría. Massive online courses (MOOC) for the time being, do not cover the purpose of overcoming inequity or lack of access to education. With almost 10 years of evolution, most of the courses on offer are complementary to a professional education and not as an option of this. Therefore, students who attend MOOC already had the opportunity to pursue a university degree. It is necessary to review how much they have affected the reality of the inequity, in the access to education, and in what way the universities can find strategies for the MOOC, will contribute to the access to the free and superior education Quality. The model Deserves a rethinking so that it really affects the populations most in need and not, in an immense minority.
  • The national taxation in the transfers and royalties territorial of
           Colombia: A search for Fiscal Equity between the Nation and the
           Territorial Entities (2000-2017)

    • Abstract: Resumen Tradicionalmente Colombia se ha caracterizado por presentar grandes diferencias económicas, políticas y sociales entre sus territorios. Por tal motivo, el objeto de este documento es la comparación del desarrollo territorial en Colombia; por lo que se han analizado las desigualdades económicas y sociales entre los departamentos del país, así como la creciente polarización de sus niveles de ingreso per cápita; en este sentido se encontró que la realidad económica y social de la nación se caracteriza por presentar una gran disimilitud entre los diferentes territorios. Por eso, es necesario proponer un debate sobre el actual Sistema Tributario de Colombia, rediseñando políticas que permitan asegurar el equilibrio necesario entre la distribución de competencias impositivas y el fortalecimiento financiero de los entes territoriales (departamentos, municipios y distritos). Visto así, se presenta la realidad nacional frente a la distribución de las competencias tributarias y los recursos cedidos por el Gobierno central a los territorios; se presenta también cálculos del Índice de Gini y otros cálculos propios e indicadores tributarios para analizar el comportamiento de la tributación nacional desde los departamentos colombianos; además se toma como referencia el modelo de desigualdad, recientemente realizado por Thomas Piketty, para mostrar las desigualdades de ingreso en Colombia. Las fuentes de bases de datos, corresponden a la información de los sistemas estadísticos de la Dirección de Impuestos y Aduanas Nacionales (DIAN), Departamento Administrativo Nacional de Estadística (DANE) y el Departamento Nacional de Planeación (DNP). Finalmente, el objetivo de estos resultados es servir como base para el debate de una posible reforma fiscal y/ tributaria que contribuya a reducir la desigualdad y fomentar el desarrollo territorial en Colombia. Traditionally Colombia has been characterized by wide economic, political and social between their territories. Therefore, the object of this document is the comparison of Territorial Development in Colombia, so I know have analyzed the economic and social inequalities between the departments, and the increasing polarization of levels of per capita income; in this sense, it found that the economic and social reality of the Nation was characterized by a great dissimilarity between different territories.

  • Raworth, K. (2017). Doughnut Economics: even Ways to Think Like a
           21st-Century Economist. Vermont: Chelsea Green Publishing

    • Abstract: Resumen En su libro Kate Raworth invita al lector a reflexionar sobre la pertinencia del paradigma económico dominante en el contexto de un planeta que muestra señales de agotamiento ecológico y ambiental. No se trata de un simple debate teórico; los datos empíricos indican que el capitalismo actual no es sostenible. Por medio del uso de la metáfora de una Dónut, la economista propone un cambio de la meta de crecimiento económico perpetuo en el cual se fundamenta el futuro de las sociedades. Es importante reemplazar el lenguaje de 'lo bueno es ir hacia adelante o hacia arriba' por uno que privilegie la búsqueda del equilibrio entre las necesidades humanas y los límites planetarios la Tierra. Kate Raworth's book invites the reader to reflect on the relevance of the dominant economic paradigm in the context of a planet that suffers from ecological and environmental exhaustion. The implications of that debate are not solely theoretical; empirical data shows that contemporary capitalism is not sustainable. By introducing the metaphor of the doughnut, the economist suggests a shift in the goal of perpetual economic growth on which the future of societies is based. It is important to replace the language from 'good is forward-and-up' to 'good is in-balance' between human needs and the earthly limits of the Earth.
