Last week was the 80th birthday of the President and founder of Inditex, Mr. Amancio Ortega. His birthday surprised him working, as he has been doing daily since the 50s when he opened a small store and atelier and where work gowns were sold. The employees of Inditex worldwide threw him a surprise celebration where Mr. Ortega became really emotional, so much that it became a Trending Topic. Inditex´s employees are themselves company´s shareholders, and his founder shares the success with them all. Inditex has even become a case study in the best worldwide Business Schools such as Harvard, Yale and MIT.

With the Inditex group and its different fashion brands like Zara, Left, Zara Home, Massimo Dutti, Uterqüe, etc., the fashion has reached to all the budgets. The company has created thousands of jobs worldwide and he is recognized for his great generosity with all the € millions donated each year to foundations such as Caritas (€ 40 million last year) or the Spanish Food Bank Foundation.

Since the 80th birthday of Zara´s founder, from the stalest and extreme left of the populist party Podemos, have rushed to launch attacks on Amancio Ortega´s wealth, that came alone as a result of his hard work along the years.

If a result of bad luck Inditex disappeared tomorrow, it would be a catastrophe in jobs, in taxes which would no longer were raised, in donations to organizations in need. While this gentleman created hundreds of thousands of jobs, creates wealth, he has not even been charged with tax fraud, and his name never appeared on tax paradises, such as the recent infamous Panama Papers. Nobody would want that to happen.

If ´Podemos´ of Mr. Pablo Iglesias disappeared tomorrow, whose members are dedicated to criticize and cast aspersion against Mr. Ortega while collecting € millions from Maduro´s Venezuela, a great interference issue by the way; who created companies to avoid paying taxes, and who are seeking to live the exchequer, if that happened, it would be totally irrelevant.

  1. Muy merecido homenaje y reconocimiento para un hombre que ha trabajado toda su vida, y como bien dices: crea empleos, ofrece productos para todos los bolsillos, y es el ejemplo de la discreción.
    Feliz cumpleaños al Sr. Ortega!
    Felicidades Almu por tu blog

  2. Los españoles solemos ser muy críticos con nosotros mismos… destructivos, diría yo. Todo lo que proveniente de fuera lo ensalzamos, intentando así mismo ridiculizar nuestros propios logros, aciertos, personas o empresas brillantes, vengan éstas del ámbito profesional de donde vengan.
    En lo tocante a “Posemos”, como cualquier partido comunista, desea hacerse con el control y poder españoles para quedarse con toda la riqueza, así como dotando de desinformación y empobrecimiento tanto monetaria como culturalmente a las personas pertenecientes al país que dicen amar.
    Gran parte de los votantes de “Posemos” lo conforman jóvenes universitarios, o recién licenciados. Uno de los grandes problemas en que desemboca la incultura en un país es volver a cometer los mismos errores del pasado.
    Es esta la cuestión (el fomento de la incultura, modificando la historia al gusto del populismo) que hoy por hoy nos acucia en España, con el fin del fácil engaño?
