On the other hand, when the left governs, and the Executive proves useless in the fight against inflation, the deficit, excessive pu...

The proposals, which can come from any user or academic, "are allowed to sleep at the door until they stabilize" because "sometimes words become fashionable and disappear as soon as they appear on the language market," he added.
