Management Summary: The last Nobel award to Angus Deaton updated the concern that economic institutions still have the problem of social inequality in the world.

Deaton has been investigating from an econometric perspective, introducing significant innovations in methodological issues, in particular through the use of surveys and series drawn from large samples of family households individual data, without forgetting the decisive social sediment that affects nearly one billion of human beings in the world, especially in matters relating to health, education and vocational training, social services, etc.

We must also point out other contributions made by international institutions, from the UN to the International Monetary Fund or the World Health Organization, but also Spanish entities with a clear idea to touch public opinion both on the origin of inequality as possible measures that could neutralize its harmful effects for population. Tax measures, labor, educational management, and, in particular, reinforcing health services, would be crucial on an environment such as this one, in which economic growth away from reducing inequality is affecting more strongly to people suffering from unemployment, inequality and social exclusion.

The analysis is being performed with input data and assessments concerning fundamental values ​​of social inequality in the world as well as in Spain.

Management Summary: On the last century took place in Spain, in the city of Alicante, the spontaneous formation of a prodigious intellectual group, called the Alicante Group. Germán Bernácer (Alicante 1883-1965), researcher on economics, was the founder. He created the pillars of Macroeconomics before they were introduced formally by Keynes (Cambridge 1883-1965).

We will analyse the potential effects on the Spanish Economy proposed by the Alicante Group, taking into account the ideas of Bernácer, Gabriel Miró, Oscar Esplá, José Guardiola, Daniel Bañul, Juan Vidal and Emilio Varela to overcome the economic and financial problems of the country.
