Guillem Soler i Blanch, Carlos Mª Moreno Pérez, Antonio Chaves Lechuga


The object of this paper is to collect and discuss examples of social benefits in emerging markets.

These countries should not disregard the role the workforce holds as being essential for their mutual benefit (both as employers and employees).
