The Pandora Papers leak reveals, once again, that to avoid taxes and the corrupt are transferring money out of poorer countries into more developed ones without proper controls. Much of this is preventable: we know what needs to be done to track illicit financial flows, to recover stolen assets, and to ensure that everyone pays their fair share of tax. One such instrument is open company registers. But to ensure that everyone is fiscally equally we first need politicans which are transparent themselves and which are not driven by ego but by state sense.

A few weeks ahead of the Bundestag election on 26 September, Germans are still struggling to imagine their country without Chancellor Angela Merkel. This may be to do with the profiles of the candidates or the low quality of the electoral campaign. But the personality of Merkel seems to provide an even better explanation for Germans’ wariness about seeing someone else in the chancellor’s seat. Merkel was a perfect symbol of the German Zeitgeist at the beginning of the twenty-first century. Her policy style and decisions have reflected the significant changes happening in German society and politics in the last 16 years, as well as an overwhelming desire to maintain the status quo for as long as possible by avoiding revolutionary shifts. No wonder Germans will miss her.

Navarra offers the best of Spain

Ernest Hemingway was the complete opposite of an exemplary person or a gentleman. He was a drinker and womanizer, but he also was in love with Spain. About to turn 62 the Nobel Prize in Literature committed suicide on July 2, 1961, one step away from leaving again for Pamplona to celebrate Sanfermines, for the tenth time in his life. The grumpy American writer loved bullfighting and Spanish food, the vibrating cultural scene at that time and the good drinks.

The relaxed Spaniards have fit very well to his idea of having fun, but could not refrain in the end his troubled soul and mind from killing himself. His appreciation for the closeness and joy of the Spaniards when he first arrived in 1923, Hemingway transmitted three years later in “The sun also rises” (Fiesta). It was a “bestseller” and the beginning of a mass tourism for Navarra, at least from 6th to the 14th of July when the Sanfermines are celebrated and hundreds of Americans run with the bulls, or at  least try it.
