Íntegra da sova que o Presidente Bill Clínton deu em FHC, em 1999, na Itália – Não adianta chorar e pedir dinheiro se são incompetentes para gerir a economia


Leia aqui neste PDF da Administração Clínton:

Clínton tem razão: É um mal que atravessas todos os governos brasileiros de todas as épocas e de todos os partidos políticos. Atualmente está sendo desmascarado o embromador Guido Mantega… e continuarem assim, de descalabro em descalabro…

Nota: Alan Greenspan no seu livro de memórias, A ERA DA TURBULÊNCIA,  dedica um capítulo a desgraça que é a demagogia e populismo do México à Patagônia. Ele se pergunta como é possível tanta incompetência em economia, incompetência essa que joga a inflação a milhares por cento ao ano….
Depois dá uma mensagem de esperança por existirem jovens brasileiros que fizeram pós em universidades americanas e que estão cheios de vida e vigor disposto a resistir aos políticos…
Conclusão: Cara!, se não tivéssemos estes poucos gatos pingados, (a maioria deles são os meninos da Puc-RJ), que fizeram pós nos Eua.., estaríamos bem pra lá do quinto mundo…


Primeiro trecho:

I think that a lot of reforms have been made.

Now, the question is, can domestic economies—can Henrique do things that would help this?

Chile had a capital control system that worked pretty well, to try to regulate radical movements of money in and out of the country. But the only reason it worked well is, Chile had a system that was recognized as having integrity and effectiveness, so that people still wanted to put their money there even if there was some control on how rapidly it could move in and out.

The same with Malaysia in the Asian financial crisis— people thought you could make money in Malaysia, so they would put up with the capital controls. On the other hand, if when the Russians tried to control money—even the Russians were sending money out of Russia, in record amounts, because they didn’t believe at the moment that the system would work.

So should we continue to reform the IMF and the World Bank and the multilateral development banks? Absolutely. But we should not minimize the fact that you’ve got to move a lot of money around every day.

Second thing: domestic systems matter.

Governments have to have good, honest financial systems, because you can’t make people put their money in a place they don’t want to spend it, and you can’t make people keep their money in a place they no longer have confidence in.

And governments have to have greater capacity; this is something the old—the so-called old left and the new left ought to agree on.

The truth is, in most developing countries, governments are too weak, not too strong.”

Video resumido da sova:

Segundo trecho:

Why is Uganda the only country in Africa that can drive the AIDS rate down?

How can—why shouldn’t we be out there promoting a system where once a country in a developing area of the world solves a problem we more speedily make sure that is done everywhere else, and we help people do that.

This is crazy.

I mean, just—AIDS is just one example, but, I mean, it’s convulsing African countries—but here’s Uganda proving that you can get the rate down, and, oh, by the way, they have economic growth at 5 percent or 6 percent a year.

So national policies matter.

The third thing is, what are we going to do to help?

Very quickly. One, we ought to support everybody, from the Pope to Bono,

who’s recommending debt relief for the poorest countries in the world. It’s insane to keep these poor countries spending all their

money making interest payments—they can’t even pay off the principal.

They’ll never be able to grow, and they have no money to buy our products.

So the G–8 initiative on debt relief is right. We should do that. Two, we ought to vigorously support economic  impowerment initiatives that work in developing nations.

I have been in Sao Paulo and Rio, two of the largest cities in the world, two of the most wonderful places on Earth.

But there are millions of children there that will have no future unless their families can make a decent living.”

O Pioneiro do Comunismo no Partido Democrata faleceu hoje: George McGovern

Yes, George McGovern did radicalize the Democratic Party…literally. He re-wrote the rules on nomination, understood them, and after George Wallace was shot, thereby eliminating the possibility of a brokered convention, he got himself nominated, only to go down in utterly ignomenious defeat.

Yet it was McGovern who created the new Democratic party, which hated the military, hated the intelligence agencies, opposed any war we were involved in, supported all our foes, justified anyone who hated America denigrated our past, our history, poked fun at our Constitution, deconstructed our institutions. It was McGovern and his tools who drove the moderate Democrats such as Scoop Jackson out of the party and made the Republican Party the majority party in America from 1972 to today….the Democrats only win when the majority party splits (think of 1912 and Taft vs Roosevelt) or in extrodinary circumstances (1976, 2008).

Yep, McGovern has a lot to answer for. He sure as heck helped create (with a lot of help from the lame-stream News Business) the unbelievable ideological gulf separating half of America from the other

From the editorial:   “But the greatest damage to his campaign probably came from the excesses of a sizable part of his antiwar constituency, which imposed on the campaign an image that belied its candidate and his beliefs.”
It was the far left, with those who admired Communists and despised the values most Americans have, that did him in.
McGovern never shared those beliefs, but like the Occupy movement, he was a man of good intentions who couldn’t shake the radical elements.

Translate for both of you…Socialist Government or Government Over All…the same thing folks. And what does this have to do with flying sorties over Germany? Leftists, Progressives, Socialists, Democrats, Liberals…what ever you call yourselves…all you want to do is enslave the working person and make them dependent on your government leaders so you can cement your power. Reference….Hugo Chavez. Probably another person McGovern admired.

JKHill -10/21/2012 9:56 PM GMT-0200

No sir…Nixon was the lesser of 2 evils. Leftists like McGovern would have lost the Cold War, sold out to the Soviets….a system he admired anyway…and we would have become a Cuba by now.


Trecho do NYTIMES:

“Mr. McGovern benefited from new party rules that he had been largely responsible for writing, and from a corps of devoted young volunteers, including Bill Clinton and Hillary Rodham, who took time off from Yale Law School to work on the campaign in Texas.

The nominating convention in Miami was a disastrous start to the general election campaign. There were divisive platform battles over Vietnam, abortion, welfare and court-ordered busing to end racial discrimination. The eventual platform was probably the most liberal one ever adopted by a major party in the United States. It advocated immediate withdrawal from Vietnam, amnesty for war resisters, abolition of the draft, a guaranteed job for all Americans and a guaranteed family income well above the poverty line.”

Exile and influence

After Sen. McGovern’s overwhelming loss in the 1972 election, Democrats lost three of the next four presidential contests. That prompted the centrist Democratic Leadership Council to urge the party’s subsequent nominees to avoid “McGovernism,” which it defined as far-left stances that were out of sync with Middle America. By 1992, Bill Clinton was elected president on a moderate platform that steered away from hard-left positions.

Sen. McGovern won reelection to the Senate in 1974 but was targeted for defeat by Republicans in 1980 and lost by a wide margin to then-Rep. James Abdnor. Angered by the political attacks, Sen. McGovern founded the political interest group Americans for Common Sense in 1981. He launched a brief presidential bid for the 1984 nomination, promoting a national health-care system and reductions in the military budget, but he ended his bid after losses in the early primaries.
