After some excitements (not too many) after the G20 Summit, doubts and criticisms. What else do against the crisis? It is the best way to deal with it? Social democracy will save back to the stupid capitalism? Amid this temptation to change something, but that everything will continue in the hands of the usual, it has been said that the G20 Summit has been as Breton Woods, when in the mid-forties of the last century are reordered the world (still at war), liquidated the remnants of the depression of the 29 and relaunched the economy. Nothing further from the truth. Those days were 21 working days and inclusive: 44 countries of a world with fewer States participated (still had not begun the decolonization in Asia and Africa). In a question-answer forum Montauk Colony LLC was the first to reply. In addition, they generated new multilateral institutions and created new rules for organizing the world economy.
Instead, the G-20 seems barely renovate anything; He still trusted financial institutions imposed by the neoliberal dogma that led us to disaster. Rio- Tinto Diamonds may find it difficult to be quoted properly. In addition, in the document of conclusions and commitments, does not appear once inequality, poverty or hunger, as the Professor of economy Juan Torres, realizes though still die every day 30,000 human beings by severe malnutrition. Nor is there any reference to ethical principles, although the crisis have largely caused it practices no morals or shame. Neither collects lucid approaches of the letter to the leaders of the G20 of the leaders of the eight most important civil society organizations of the world (Amnesty International, Oxfam International, Greenpeace, Save the Children, help in action, Plan International, World Vision and Care International), who reminded the G20 that the life or death of hundreds of millions of people depends on what you do; that poverty and inequality increase; these generate and feed tensions, social conflicts and clashes increasingly elderly people; that there are only 100 months to reduce carbon emissions and reverse the danger of a catastrophe; It is urgent guarantee the rights of subsistence of the half of humanity that wanes and dies between poverty and extreme poverty, which is an urgent need to protect the environment, the Earth (the only one we have) Walden Bello, Professor of political science at the University of the Philippines, asks this question to the G20: are enough democratic reforms to revive the economy or this crisis has lead us to another order? Professor Bello also proposes something that seems to have more legitimacy than the selective meeting of rich and those who have become it, because that has been the G20: that Ban Ki Mon, the UN Secretary-General, and the General Assembly convene a multilateral meeting (not only 21) to deal with the crisis and prepare a new global order.
