Urgent Action Needed To Protect Recovery

Dr. Michael LaitmanOpinion: (Christine Lagarde, the IMF Chief): “The new head of the IMF on Saturday urged global policymakers to pursue urgent coordinated action, including the mandatory recapitalization of European banks, or risk descent into renewed world recession.

“‘Developments this summer have indicated we are in a dangerous new phase,’ International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde said on Saturday at an annual gathering of policymakers from around the world hosted by the Kansas City Federal Reserve Bank.

“‘The stakes are clear; we risk seeing the fragile recovery derailed. So we must act now,’ she said.

“Two years after the end of the worst of the financial crisis, growth in both the United States and Europe is sputtering, and debt crises and indecision on both sides of the Atlantic have shaken public confidence in a global recovery.”

My Comment: Lately, everyone begins to blame everybody else for negative impacts. Such impacts do take place, but they always have. It’s just that now we reveal that everyone is connected with everybody else in a single network of relationships, and thus, the sensitivity to actions increases. Unless we take measures towards mutual understanding (mutual guarantee), these relationships will quickly lead to war.

  1. The Fed just gave 14 TRILLION dollars to recapitalize failing banks around the globe according to the recent audit of the Federal Reserve by congressional mandate. Somehow, I don’t think another handout will correct the corruption. All this printing of money and borrowing is causing spiraling prices to boot.

    A total change of desire and consciousness is needed, just as you have been saying. Then, the real solutions will become more obvious and people will begin to implement them.
