La Gaceta (Spanish for "The Gazette", full name La Gaceta de los Negocios, "The Business Gazette") is a newspaper belonging to the Intereconomia Group which is conservative and supportive of market liberalism.

History and profile[edit]

The newspaper was established as La Gaceta de los Negocios in March 1989.[1][2][3] It was part of Grupo Zeta in the 1990s.[4] In 1994 the paper had a circulation of 17,736 copies.[4]

The paper once belonged to Grupo Negocios until August 2009 when it was bought by Intereconomia Group.[2] On 21 October 2009, the newspaper was relaunched nationally under the name La Gaceta.[3] Following the transaction it also left its pure business focus, becoming a general newspaper.[5] It sold out in its first day, selling 100,000 copies.[6]

Its headquarters was in Madrid[3] and it had branches in Barcelona, Bilbao, Valencia, and Valladolid. Conservative and economically liberal, La Gaceta positioned itself as the leading representative of Spanish conservatism and traditionalism.[7] It took strong stances against abortion and same-sex marriage and heavily criticized the Socialist government of 2004-2011.

In December 2013 the paper ceased paper publication,[2][8] It continues to publish online.[8]
