    The critic to the positivismo on the part of the atenestas young people initiated a new period in the history of the philosophical ideas in Mexico. Two of the most important philosophers of the Athenian, Antonio Caso and Jose Vasconcelos influenced in the national philosophical life laying the way for the approach to the philosophy, in the same way that became in Europe. Its merit is to have formed new generations that were scattered by different philosophical territories. Of the thought currents with which the atenestas were affiliated, a very distinguishable one, was the one of the philosophical spiritualism. Caso and Vasconcelos are personalities completely different in their way to live the philosophy, but united in a tendency to look for the way to philosophise by the way of the spiritualism that was reinitiated in Europe. In opposition to intellectualism characteristic of the positivismo that indicated to the reason like an important faculty of the knowledge in union to the experience, the atenestas were antiintelectualistas and loaded the balance towards the intuition and the emotion, that in his opinion completes the work of brings back to consciousness. More of the thought currents with which they were affiliated it was the indeterminismo of the nature, that they extracted of the French philosophy.

    These currents of the philosophy and others more, influenced to give a direction him different, richer and intense from the history of the philosophy in Mexico and Latin America. Return a the Metaphysical preoccupations, the extension of the human experience, the affirmation without hesitations of the freedom like foundation of the spirit; to sum up, the glorification of the man, is what gives to the conferences and to writings of the atenestas that tone of Christian optimism and generosity, freedom, affection by the town, distinguishes that them of texts of the positivistas authors. In 1912 the grouping changed the name to become the Athenian of Mexico. Nevertheless, the murder of Log in 1913 gave a dramatic turn him to the events. The Athenian vanished and each of its members took different courses: Some went of the country like exiled or to realise studies; others committed more in the policy of the moment and others were dedicated to the chair, the test and the artistic creation.

    Krurgman, born in 1953, has been awarded the highest award for his contribution to science and analysis of trade patterns and location of economic activity. This professor at Stanford University is also a contributor to The New York Times, since 2001, and from his column has repeatedly criticized some decisions of George W. Bush. This is one of the economists prestigious and influential in the world and won the 1991 John Bates Clack medal, awarded every two years by the American Economical association. As indicated by the above information is important to enter the scope, impact and generates his theory that states that trade patterns and location has always been key issues in the economic debate.

    What are the effects of free trade and globalization? What forces are influencing the exponential growth of urban areas across the globe? U.S. professor has developed a new theory to answer these questions, for which has crossed the research data from international trade with economic geography. Krugman’s approach is based on the premise that many goods and services can be produced more cheaply in long series, the stuff of economies of scale, while consumers have to demand an increasing variety of goods and services.

    As a result, production small-scale local economies is being progressively replaced by large-scale production of the world economy, dominated by companies that manufacture similar products and competing. Classical theories on trade patterns argue that countries are different, which explains why some nations export agricultural products while others export industrial goods or steel, for example. But a review of Krugman offers an explanation as to why trade is dominated by countries characterized not only by having similar economic conditions, as argued by the classics, but also for dealing in similar products, one example is Sweden, which both Car imports and exports. According to the professor, this trade makes specialization in large-scale production, which in turn reflected in a decrease in prices and growing a wide variety of consumer goods.

    Economies of scale combined with low transport rates also help explain why people tend to focus on making cities and economic tasks in similar geographic locations. low prices and transport can lead to self-reinforcing these processes through which the metropolitan population growth contribute to the increase in large-scale production, which in turn causes an increase in real wages and a greater diversity of supply of goods and goods: that is stimulated migration to cities. Krugman’s theories have shown that the consequence will be the growth of urban areas increasingly divided into two areas, much like Silicon Valley in California: an area dominated by high technology, surrounded by an expanding periphery much less developed. In 2007, the theory of the mechanisms Recall that last year, the winners were Americans Leonid Hurwicz, University of Minnesota, Eric S. Maskin, Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton and Roger B. Myerson, University of Chicago, for their joint contribution to establishing the foundations of the theory for the design of mechanisms, which explains why some business models are more efficient than others.

    “In his first remarks after receiving the prize, Krugman referred to the current global economic crisis and said that although the world economy could face a large-scale recession, surely you can avoid collapse. The winner also praised the efforts of world leaders to overcome the crisis, despite had recently warned that the rescue plan approved in the U.S. “has no rhyme or reason” because they give aid “without conditions or counterparties.”

When analyzing images of peasants, very present in the medieval calendars, we come across in them with strong workers, many times badly dresses (some comroupas torn, while other bare-footed ones) and almost always in set.

    The history of Persian carpet goes back to 2,500 years ago. The Persians were pioneers in the manufacture of carpet between the ancient civilizations and generated a high level of perfection through many centuries of creativity. Skill in the manufacture of carpets was transmitted of parents to children, who also developed this skill and transmitted it is, in turn, to their own offspring as a sort of well kept family secret. To study the history of Persian carpet should follow the path of the culture of one of the greatest civilizations development. At the beginning, carpets were an item of necessity since they were used as covers for soil and inputs in order to protect the nomads of the cold weather. Most beautiful rugs later, attracted new and different proprietary Kings and nobles, who saw them as signs of wealth, distinction and prestige-.European paintings dated between 1350 and 1450 carpets can be obtained by lot and very good information about the drawings of the carpets of that era (heraldic birds, animals fighting, a tree between two birds and animals), probably copied from Byzantine fabrics. Some of the most beautiful carpets made during the 16th and 17TH centuries were woven in the city of Usak, to the West of Turkey, which was one of the main centers of the Court of the Ottoman Empire. Typical carpets Usak artisans wove were prayer, drawings of stars, medallion, of birds and of lines and dots. It must be said that Turkmen carpets are recognizable by the typical dark red and by the surface defined by a single repeated motive: thus are the bukara (with rows of octagons with framed in white and alternate mixtilineo contour with oscurisimas crosses) and subtypes pendeh and khiva, the yemud (continuous motif of diamonds), the tekke (octagons simplified) and the afgan (Octagon in whose centre stands the cross and clover).
