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.”

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.”
