Military Review

One - Davos, the other - manure ...

20
Today (January 23) another economic forum opens in Davos, which brings together representatives of political and economic elites (and often the "elites") of dozens of countries around the world.


One - Davos, the other - manure ...


We are talking about current and former representatives of the highest state authorities, members of the board of shareholders of the largest banks, industrial companies, apologists for various economic schools. Moreover, each of these economically or politically enlightened brethren has its own tasks. Some come to seriously discuss economic problems and at least declaratively identify ways to solve them. Others are interested in the mountain alpine air and the confirmation of their own status as a person. Still others come with a hand in their pockets, so that at any convenient (and often uncomfortable) case, they can extend this hand and ask in the style of “Musya, but not a mange ...” At the same time, incidents from the series often happen: the salesman has billions in accounts dollars, but he needs to "file for the development of power."

From this series, the visit to Davos of Petr Alekseevich Poroshenko, which was already announced in the British press, was included in the rating of the richest guests of Davos-2017. British magazine Verdict on the eve he published a material in which he said that the president and the part-time oligarch (he said so ...) in 1,6 accounts billion dollars. And according to this indicator, he is in the 9 position among all money bags arriving in Davos.

From preliminary statistics: 60 presidents and heads of government, over a thousand business representatives, will gather in Davos this year. The total number of guests close to the mark in 3,5 thousand people. Among the guests, for example, is the head of the IMF, Christine Lagarde, with whom the dialogue with the aforementioned Petro Poroshenko has not been working with recently regarding the granting of regular loans to Ukraine. Ms. Lagarde insists that Petr Alekseevich fulfilled all the requirements of the IMF: from raising the retirement age to creating anti-corruption courts, and Petr Alekseevich again states that “everything will be done, but better transfer the tranche forward ... in advance ...”
And what about the agenda of the forum? Well, in fact, it’s not only the desire of an oligarch president or oligarch president to get a loan to pay off other loans ...

The agenda is actually “stable.” No ...

First of all, those gathered gathered in their own way to “celebrate” the 10 anniversary of the global economic crisis of the year. Collective champagne, foie gras - well, right, to honor, so to speak, the crisis of memory ...

At the same time, the very topic of Davos-2018 is stated as “Creating a common future in a divided world”. What? ..

At the forum, most of the people who do everything for dissociation on the planet, for impoverishing some in favor of enriching others, are gathering from this, the very name of the forum looks even more cynical.

What is this “common future”? This is when the average African resident is forced to think daily about how to survive by half a dollar a day or find more or less fresh (clean - it would be wonderful at all) water, while the majority of guests at the Davos forum discuss how best to to dispose of a billion fell from the division of the same African mineral reserves - for example, after the well-known events in the once richest Libya (not by African standards)? .. Or when some are looking for jobs to work and earn, others translate business offshore to avoid paying taxes, destroying jobs in their own countries? Although what “these” countries are for these people of the country is a separate question. It seems that this is exactly what should be considered a “common future in a divided world” ...

If you come back years ago on 20-25 back, I wonder what was discussed in Davos? It may be surprising here, although there is no surprise, considering how far the forum participants are from the problems 90% of the world's population faces. They discussed almost the same as now, except with a slightly different terminology.

Take 1993 year. The theme of the World Economic Forum in Davos then sounded like this: “rallying all forces to restore the world economy”.

A quarter of a century has passed. Already rallied, so rallied ... No, the world economy since then, no doubt, has grown. But, as it turns out, the growth of the world economy has nothing to do with a decrease in the number of people living below the poverty line. This figure has grown over the past 25 years, according to the World Bank, by almost 12%. At the same time, in the post-crisis stage, the growth plan for the population living below the poverty line in the world also rose by 16%.

Year 2006. In Davos, they decided to look for new sources of growth. And they took care ... They just did not take into account that in less than two years the American mortgage will burst, followed by an insurance bubble; The global economy will plunge into the abyss of falling only because the American financial system has been handing out unsecured money to the right and left for decades, believing that the economy’s position with a hole in more than 15 trillions of “green” is unshakable.

And in Davos, respected men and ladies who were dressed up discussed the need to deepen trade and economic ties in the WTO (World Trade Organization). We discussed, it must be said, under remarkable circumstances: when some WTO countries introduced trade and economic sanctions against other WTO countries. At the same time, the leadership of this WTO itself did not lift a finger in order to encourage everyone to simultaneously and mutually cancel the sanctions measures. On the contrary, they already threatened with their own sanctions against one participant in favor of the participant to another - the one who has a stick with nails to guide the WTO ...

There were also calls for globalization and transparency in the movement of capital. Apparently, after that, separately taken countries took the mode of “transparently” freezing the funds of sovereign states in bank accounts even in third countries only due to the fact that individual representatives of the authorities of these countries did not “face faces” in a democratic sense.

They live like this ... Once a year they gather - cigars, champagne, expensive costumes, jewelry, perfumes, Alps, skis - and discuss how to make our life better with you. Well, yes, yes ... After all, they will definitely do it. We believe ...

    I see DAVOS as a gathering of a handful of wealthy people who disguise their status as various financial structures and organizations ... under this cover, they passionately discuss and plan new ways and methods of robbing billions of people on our planet.
    Let's not forget that 82 percent of all the wealth of our planet is in the hands of 1 percent of the Earth’s population.
    In addition to this gathering of bourgeois there are even more exotic gatherings of the rich ... such as the Bilderberg Club, etc.

      So that's right, 82% prefer to sit exactly on the pope they do these dirty things, business is not needed. They would be from 9 to 6 and go home, watch Solovyov.

    “Creating a Common Future in a Disconnected World”
    Somehow too complicated. The world is fragmented, and some handful, the main part of which is aggressively concerned about the common future. They would turn to the Chinese for help, they are experts in giving the economic and military directions clear and biting slogans corresponding to forthcoming actions. Regarding Poroshenko, it’s clear to the ugliness to note that there is such a president, to look with a pitiful glance at those who want to say hello to him (for the subsequent portfolio in the Ukrainian media) and, of course, once again lend a hand for alms.

        There is! Check the legality of owning 82% of wealth. And carry out an inspection during working hours from 9 to 18 After which the repaired will be returned to the jurisdiction of the scalded states.

    So “Davos” is not the place where fateful decisions are made — they are made behind the scenes, at closed gatherings, at meetings of “closed” “clubs”. "Davos" is a kind of "ball", where "young" politicians "and businessmen are" brought out to people, a party on which basically the same people confirm their commitment to "old" ideas and "old masters" ... . and all.
