Politicians+Market X The Crisis! All Bets Are On!

London, UK

The politicians at the G20 summit, taking place at London, UK, debates over solutions for the hardest crisis since 1929. As usual, the unbeaten flag of “feeding the market more money” has already made the record agree of 1TN dollars recovery package.

According to Gordon Brown, Prime Minister of United Kingdom and host of the summit, “This is the day that the world came together to fight back against the global recession, not with words but with a plan for global recovery and reform and with a clear timetable.”

Surprisingly as it may see, not even the ghost of an unprecedented global recession has the power to make (some) people think. Is that really the answer? Recovering and feeding an dead system based on greed (the force whitin all corporations) and fear (the only and truly gas of the stock market), that has made over the years more victims than any natural disaster, will prevent other crisis to happen in the next 15, 20 years?

Although the global leaders have to solve as soon as possible the consequences of the crisis (wich have already reached almost every country with bankruptcy and record unemployment) , looking only to its consequences and forgetting and forgiven (again) it causes wont make a better horizon to the world’s economy.

To make the market more and more strong, and its corporations more and more powerful and free, has proved itself as the fastest and securest way to disaster, now presented on a global scale.

Now, that they are undoubtedly responses for a crisis so “bad ass” that they are also becoming victims, we decide that the right thing to do is to punish them with even more money than they have lost and made others lose.

Don’t take me the wrong way. The recovery pack is absolutely necessary, but we can´t, once the world’s safe again, forgetting all about the causes of all economic crisis over the years: the greed of the corporations and the lack of attitude of ourselves.

As Lula, Brazilian president, said, the world is now paying for the sins of the “white, blue-eyed people” and that has been true for, at least, the last 4 centuries. For how long we will be consuming and participating of this unbelievable mess without thinking?
