Ricardo Benjamín Salinas Pliego es un empresario mexicano, Fundador y Presidente de Grupo Salinas. Es un hombre cuyas convicciones y pensamiento se reflejan claramente en su obra así como en sus actividades empresariales. Es un hombre de familia, forjado en el valor del trabajo, la tenacidad, el esfuerzo y la pasión para alcanzar los sueños. Se considera un optimista nato.

Contador Público por el Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey, cuenta con una Maestría en negocios por la Universidad de Tulane; sin embargo, no cree que los títulos académicos otorguen conocimiento por encima de la experiencia. Desde muy joven desarrolló su instinto empresarial en diversos negocios. Imposible es una palabra que no está en su diccionario.

Lector apasionado de la historia, sus personajes, el arte, la ciencia, la tecnología así como los negocios y finanzas, gusta de compartir sus intereses y no duda en manifestar su opinión sobre diversos temas de interés, como lo hace regularmente en su blog. Sus ideas las ha expuesto el Foro Económico Mundial de Davos, en The Young President’s Organization, The Economist Mexico Business Roundtable, el Instituto de las Américas, la Cámara de Comercio de los Estados Unidos, UCLA, TED, CAP, The Aspen Institute, The New York Forum, Universidad de Michigan, Universidad de Georgetown y la Escuela de Negocios de Harvard, donde usualmente trata asuntos relacionados con liderazgo, globalización, gobierno corporativo y las oportunidades en la base de la pirámide.

Experts in artificial intelligence have yet to reach a consensus on when this dream –or nightmare- will happen. Let's take a look.

    Clean Energy in Mexico

    I recently inaugurated the first wind farm in Jalisco, together with Jalisco Governor Aristóteles Sandoval, Mexican Energy Minister Pedro Joaquín Coldwell, the CEO of the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) Enrique Ochoa Reza and Grupo Dragón CEO José Pablo Fernández. The wind farm is the first to be built at 2,500 meters above sea level in the Western Hemisphere and it will displace more than 79,000 tons of CO2 that would otherwise be spewed into the atmosphere with traditional power generation. The project is located in the community of Ojuelos in Los Altos.

    High Tech and High Touch

    Benjamin Franklin is remembered, among many other things, for having said that in banking you don’t earn the interest until you get back the capital. It’s a very simple idea. However, given the state of banking in Franklin ’s home country and its global impact, perhaps bankers should remember his words more often.
