American Economic Review

to fight against obesity is becoming a political priority in almost all developed countries, but it has been shown that the current economic crisis, which is still wreaking havoc in the world and that does not seem to find channel of recoil, favors the increase of the same. Partly because people leave attend gyms which leads to a decrease in physical activity during non-working period, and partly because they begin to replace more expensive and healthy foods like fruits, vegetables, meats and dairy by the lower cost, as the starchy and known as food waste. In Spain for example, is considered that one third of children are at risk of being obese adults. He is believed that technological advance offering simple and economic way the machines of fast foods, which can be found almost anywhere, is one of the causes. The American Economic Review magazine considers that calories are spent at work or diviertiendose. With progress, the work has become more sedentary, the that it relates to a decrease in its spending to lose much of the manual labor of other centuries. The population with higher income has been able to replace that loss of manual labor by physical leisure activities. But when income insufficient to pay for this new way to compensate the downtime, they would become an important added cause of obesity. A problem to be studied deeply in order quickly to find a solution.

Innkeepers

From neighborhood platform neighbouring Madrid Center want to denounce the media pressure that some restaurateurs Madrid are exerting on the Madrid City Council, against the protection of the fundamental rights of the citizens of the district Center. Much of the 150,000 residents of the area suffering from an unbearable situation as a result of the disproportionate concentration of annoying activities linked to leisure and tourism. Surprisingly, the frivolity with which the merchants are able to interpret a problem of such complexity as it is the noise associated with the nightlife, especially when there are scientific methods that demonstrate that there is a real problem and is not an obsession of the neighbours, as some of these entrepreneurs contend. The perverse effects that on health and coexistence has the nightlife in the district center of Madrid are explained, in our opinion, follows: 1.-the origin of the problem is in the management of licenses for troublesome activities of the city of Madrid has come doing over the past few years, forgetting the basic needs of residents, such as is being able to sleep, and contrary to guidelines that marks the General urban Plan, whose legal mandate is binding. The consequence has been the opening of countless entertainment venues, concentrated in a reduced space of the city; Unlike what happens in most of the large cities of the first world where troublesome activities linked to leisure are spread throughout the city to avoid perverse consequences on the resident population or even focus on non-residential spaces. 2. The lack of true management of the indiscipline of these activities by the City Council, either by lack of means well by lack of political will. Serve as an example the existence of dozens of local that they exercise activities without a license of activity, or the hundreds of premises engaged in activities other than those authorized.
