…….We should recognize and publicize the fact that Bernie Sanders is the only presidential candidate who is talking about what the IMF is doing to Greece, the only presidential candidate who has a track record of opposing the IMF, the only presidential candidate who, if elected, is likely to do anything to end the economic violence of the IMF…
……The IMF official demanded to know: why do people always accuse us of being unaccountable? We never do anything without checking with the U.S. Treasury Department…….
…..U.S. support for the IMF is more politically fragile than many people realize. Many Congressional Republicans hate the IMF, in significant measure because they see the IMF as a Democrat-supported taxpayer-financed slush fund to bail out big private banks when their international bets go bad (which assessment is quite correct.) Without the support of Congressional Democrats, the IMF is dead meat in Washington…….
Nagu ma olen korduvalt viidanud siin blogis, on vasakpoolsed samamoodi süüdi neoliberaalses majanduspoliitikas nagu parempoolsed ja kohati isegi rohkem, nemad kirjutavad sellele alla isegi rohkem. Obama on läbi aegade üks halvimaid presidente. USA-le ei ole vaja teist Clintonit, esimesest Clintonist on meeles üks lause, mida ta pidevalt korrutas: Save Social Security .
Save Social Security from its savers 🙂
