Bolivian Thoughts in an Emerging World aims at people around the globe who are interested on what is going on in Bolivia.
This page will offer daily information on most relevant economics and political issues; will provide reliable information regarding environment and social unrest events that impact on business and daily life. Short English translations are offered [if there would be a need to provide further clarification to an specific issue, I will write inside these type of brackets]. The link of the full original Spanish article from Bolivian newspapers will appear at the end of the translation. After the link, if appropriate, you will find my opinion on that issue. Events that do not appear regularly in formal media channels offered to the world, will be offered here.
I like to keep attention on the issues not on myself. That is why I think it serves no practical purpose to display my professional achievements and academic skills.
I summarize news that may not be available in English, in an effort to form an opinion about what is going on in beautiful Bolivia. Sometimes, I use cartoons as they show Bolivian character.
If you want to lift your spirit, browse THE HALL OF BOLIVIAN FAME
page (look for the upper line above). Inside you will see three main categories: people; private ventures; heritage and environment that makes us proud to be Bolivians!
If you want to look at the basics in economics, mining, agriculture, environment and other, please browse the page: Bolivia 101
For those Bolivian living abroad, at times, as I am, are confronted by the society where we currently live and sometimes there is very little to offer, either because the news are not in English or we don’t have the time to translate. Well, dear Bolivians, please feel free to use the contents under this blog to share with those people who want to know more about us, thank you.

1. English summaries of articles that appear in local newspapers that seldom are available overseas
2. Prompt reply to specific concerns, issues related to Bolivian issues in general
3. Availability to provide advice services regarding future investments, purchases or tourism
4. There is absolute confidentiality on the information you may inquire about investing or visiting Bolivia
