Comments on: Capitalism’s “chickens come home to roost” at the UN http://blogs.reuters.com/global/2009/06/25/capitalisms-chickens-come-home-to-roost-at-the-un/ Beyond the World news headlines Wed, 16 Nov 2016 20:09:42 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: cheap fifa 15 coins http://blogs.reuters.com/global/2009/06/25/capitalisms-chickens-come-home-to-roost-at-the-un/comment-page-1/#comment-144652 Fri, 26 Sep 2014 01:06:29 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/global/?p=4378#comment-144652 I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% sure. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

You are correct when you say corrupt African governments are at the heart of the matter. Our governments in the west give every advantage to our corporations to take full advantage of this corruption. This is economic oppression, empire. We enjoy cheap carbonated beverages, clothing, cell phones and more all because we pay to little for the resources we receive from the third world. What do you really think the answer is.

It was centrally run by the Politiburro. The U.S. is not capitalist. We are a quasi fascist oligarchy. The characteristics of courage, integrity, sacrifice and genuine concern for the well being of the people being present in a nations leaders is far more important than what type of government or economic system said nation employs.

The underlying reason for the Soviet and U.S. collapse was greed fueled by wartime levels of military spending by their governments for decades on end. Senseless amounts of money was spent for military build up. The spending could not be sustained. Our collapse was much slower but evident to see.

It is academic to argue the virtues of capitalism versus socialism versus communism. Most of us have never lived in another country so we don’t really know whether or not other countries do better at serving the people. We do know our country does very well serving the extremely rich.

IMF and World Bank are so highly politicized by the G8 threats of withholding contributions so as to render them auxiliary foreign embassies. The loans issued are like foreign aid , quid pro quo.

Hind sight is twenty twenty. One day civilization will look back and see that our leaders were short sighted, self interested and hopelessly corrupt. If there is enough of civilization left to remember.

Africa should stop blaming the west and take some responsibility for their own actions and people.Perhaps its time for countries like China to step up to the plate – like that’s going to happen. Enough already with the blame game!!

Historically, when the economy is in a downward cycle, socialism rears its head and expunges its virtues on the world. Castro saw the current economic downturn coming 30 years ago? Let’s get real here. If that’s true, then why didn’t he see the collapse of commun”ism” 20 years ago? The most ardent proponents of “gloom and doom” for today’s economic outlook are those who would like social”ism” to replace capital”ism”. There is an enormous difference between social conscientiousness and social”ism”. Let’s not throw out the baby with the bath water. Does social”ism” do a better job of dealing with social issues of providing personal opportunity and freedom than capital”ism”? Well, let’s look at a few examples………Nazi Germany, USSR, Communist China, Cuba………..America, Canada, South Korea. There is a difference that a blind man could plainly see. We’ve been down the social”ism” road before. Why travel that way again?

Africa wanted everyone out so they could run their own country so allow them to do so.
The UN is a joke anyway –
