من يدفع ثمن الكساد الإقتصادي العالمي

Global recession due to savage capitalism and warmongering by the west, especially the USA
STOKING INFLATION: G7 finance ministers called on oil exporters to step up production.
– [comment by B.T. : The origin from “Reuters” providing news on the G7 summit, is very much different from what this article here is speculating. It seems that rueters is much closer to reality than the British mouthpieces speculating in this article !]

Pressure mounts on Gulf to hike oil outputCourtesy of ArabianBusiness.COM (Article by Gernot Heller and Emily Kaiser on Saturday, 09 February 2008) http://www.arabianbusiness.com/510682-pressure-mounts-on-gulf-to-hike-oil-output

The world economy is vulnerable to a deeper slump in the US housing market, tighter credit conditions and high oil and commodity prices, according to a draft copy of a G7 communique obtained by newswire Reuters.Finance leaders from the Group of Seven industrialised nations also called on world oil exporters to step up production as high prices stoke inflation.

The draft did not contain any proposed wording on foreign exchange rates, which G7 finance officials were discussing in their meetings on Saturday.”Downside risks still persist, which include further deterioration of the US residential housing markets; tighter credit conditions from prolonged difficulties in the financial markets; high oil and commodity prices; and heightened inflation expectations in some countries,” the draft G7 statement read.The finance leaders urged oil exporters to raise production, saying that high oil prices stemmed largely from rising world demand, but also geopolitical concerns.

The G7 in its October statement made no reference to oil production and previously had only spoken of the need to increase refinery capacity and energy efficiency.Since then, oil prices briefly topped $100 per barrel last month, pushing global inflation uncomfortably high and complicating matters for central bankers trying to prop up economic growth without stoking further price pressure.

Oil has since retreated to around $90 a barrel on concerns a slowing economy would dent demand, although supply disruptions and a forecast US cold snap saw prices vault 4% on Friday to $91.77 a barrel.Finance ministers, keen to show a united front in the face of a weakening global economy, acknowledged that growth was likely to slow, and risks were skewed to the downside.

As reported by Reuters earlier, the draft statement also acknowledged a “more challenging and uncertain” global economic outlook than when the G7 finance ministers last met in October.”We will continue to watch developments closely and take appropriate actions, individually and collectively, in order to secure stability and growth in our economies,” the communique read.

The finance leaders called on financial firms to promptly disclose losses they may have incurred and reinforce their capital base.While banks have announced more than $100 billion in writedowns tied primarily to the US subprime mortgage mess, more is likely to come, particularly from European banks. Many have been slower than their American counterparts to fully recognise and report losses.

The communique also stressed the need for unified action to address global climate change following December’s climate talks in Bali, Indonesia, where officials agreed to two years of negotiations to reach a deal to succeed the Kyoto Protocol.”We will seek to enhance the critical roles played by international financial institutions and the private sector in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Market-based policies, which could include taxes and emission trading, will become increasingly important in combating climate change.”An eagerly awaited section on foreign exchange issues remained blank as finance leaders wrangled over the wording.A G7 source told Reuters on Saturday that the wording in the communique would be roughly in line with previous comments that put pressure on China to allow its yuan currency to appreciate more quickly.

لماذا يطلب قادة إقتصاد الدول الصناعية الكبرى تخفيض سعر النفط؟

وهل سيؤدي ذلك، فيما لو حدث فعلاً، إلى إنتعاش الإقتصاد العالمي؟

ثم لماذا تتحمل الدول المنتجة للنفط ثمن السياسات الإقتصادية الطائشة والفاشلة للدول الصناعية الكبرى، بأي حق ؟

أليست الدول الصناعية الكبرى هي الأكثر ثراء وقدرة على تحمّل تبعات سياساتها الطائشة الفاشلة؟

لماذا لا تتعلم تلك الدول الكبرى درساً، تستحقّ أن تتعلمه، عن العواقب الوخيمة للتوحش الرأسمالي والمبالغة في الجشع؟

ألم تكن الحرب على العراق عملية نهب مسلّح لنفط وثروات ومستقبل العراق؟

لماذا إذاً لا تدرك الدول الكبرى ان الجشع والسرقة والنهب لن يسعفها مهما كان حجمه! ومهما كانت الحجج التي تسوقها لتسويغة!

لماذا لا تريد أن تدرك أن الكذب والإفتراء والصخب والضجيج الإعلامي والدعائي مهما فشى وطغى فلن يمنع الحقيقة ولن يحجب العواقب الطبيعية لممارسات التردّي السياسي والإنحطاط الحضاري!

ثمّ لماذا لا تتعلم هذه الدول الصناعية الكبرى، أن العمل الحقيقي الجيّد، والإستثمار في البناء والتعليم، هو الأمل الحقيقي الوحيد للوصول إلى مستقبل أفضل، لهم أولاً، وللعالم جميعاً كذلك !

ماذا لو دفعت كل تلك الالوف المؤلّفة من مليارات الدولارات التي بددتها الولايات المتحدة في الحروب والتسلح وسباقات الغطرسة، في النعليم والبناء والنهوض الحقيقي بأفريقيا والدول الفقيرة ومحو الفقر والجوع والمرض والتخلف من العالم!

هل ضاعت إلى الأبد فرصة كانت متاحة للدول الإستعمارية الصناعية الكبرى وعلى رأسها الولايات المتحدّة في التعويض عن جرائم الإستعمار والتكفير عن تاريخها المتوحّش في النهب والسلب والظلم والطغيان؟
