A learning society

Faced with the speed of changes and turbulence, the important thing is to prepare from society, the State, companies and organizations in general, to learn and adapt.

My proposal is to create or renew institutions to fulfill that function. How do organizations analyze changes, project and build the future? How are these ideas transformed into public policies and management instruments or incentives? How are these processes made more useful? How are citizen participation mechanisms generated?

We must make profound structural changes in the public service, education, training and research systems, tax and retirement systems, banking services.

Strengthening and public appreciation of the culture of the company, as a basis for the development of a country. Symbiosis of the three cultures, literary, artistic and historical, scientific and technological, and that of business and action, as a basis for affirming the cultural identity of a country.

Economic policies with constant and permanent attention to employment problems, not through simple assistance or subsidies to non-competitive companies, but through ongoing training and the possibility of recycling to expanding sectors.

Decentralization, statutes of administrative autonomies and promotion of local governance.

Transversal, and non-vertical and hierarchical, flows of information.

Principle of subsidiarity, that is, decisions made at the lowest possible hierarchical level.

Constant gradualization and contextualization of structural changes, taking into account both the national and international situation.

Efforts and mechanisms towards economic and political cooperation in the context of large regional groupings.
