I’m a marxist, militant worker, and union representative. I work as a professor of “Critique of the political economy” at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM).
I have a degree in Economics (1989), Sociology (1992), and a doctorate in International Economics and Development (1993), with a thesis that gave rise to the book Milagro o quimera: la economía chilena durante la dictadura (1995), all from UCM. I’m also a Master in Planning, Public Policy, and Development at the Latin American Institute of Economic and Social Planning of the United Nations (ILPES) in Santiago, Chile (1990). I’ve worked at dozens of universities on five continents, mostly in Latin America. I’ve advised 15 doctoral theses, in addition to tens of Masters research projects. I’ve published numerous articles, book chapters, etc.
In 2014, I published Capitalismo y economía mundial, an extensive book from which we did almost 100 presentations, each one turning into a political action as well. A second edition was released in 2016 and a French edition was released in 2017; a Portuguese edition is being prepared and an English edition is awaiting confirmation. In 2018, I published the book Enseñanzas de la Revolución rusa, in which in addition to my extensive introduction, I’ve compiled texts from the revolutionary experiences itself as well as from its principal leaders, and I conclude with an epilogue on the contributions of the Russian Revolution to the emancipatory struggle today.
