UN Secretary General: The world has entered the worst economic crisis in almost a century

50

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the world has entered the worst economic crisis in almost a hundred years. And its current state can be described with a single word - “fragility”.


This statement was made by the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, at the Davos Agenda event. The UN Secretary General's speech was published on the official website of the organization he heads.

More than two million people have died and we are in the worst economic crisis in nearly a century.

- he said.

In indicating such a time frame, Guterres probably meant that the scale of today's problems can only be compared with the crisis after the end of World War II, which rolled through many countries and caused colossal damage. This affected the inhabitants of the USSR especially sharply.

The Secretary General noted that the inequality between people and states in the world has been further exacerbated during the COVID-19 pandemic.

To overcome the problems, Guterres encourages the people of the planet to dialogue and cooperation. He believes that this year, as the pandemic recovers, the world needs to seize the moment and make an effort to move "from fragility to resilience."

The UN Secretary General called on countries to build sustainable economies based on renewable energy sources, which "will create new jobs, sustainable infrastructure and a healthier future."

Guterres also expressed fears of a return to a bipolar world, like the one that existed during the Cold War era. Now we are talking about the United States and China.

We remain wary of a world splitting in two as the two largest economies on earth are led by two areas with different dominant currencies, trade and financial rules. We must do everything we can to prevent such a division. We need a single global economy with universal respect for international law, a multipolar world with strong multilateral institutions.

- said the UN Secretary General.
But the secretary general did not specify whether this means that a single economy should again be built based solely on one pole - the United States ...

          To whom is this "us"?
          That is the question.

          In general, the rooster crows in the morning at will and with the joy of meeting a new day.

          And this one is not even a rooster.

        Why immediately "rape"? Some are very active fussing under clients, it seems to them that this is an act of dedication. Some, fatter and fatter pigs, look around in bewilderment - they or they will begin to lay out. Well, whoever is smarter and has not forgotten the past lessons of history, has long taken out a sawn-off shotgun and is ready for an unwelcome visit. Hopefully ready. soldier

      Guterres, in fact, wanted to say that while there are Anglo-Saxons on earth, people will not have to wait for a good life, but of course he could not directly say that, although he really wanted to, so he had to fence a garden! As a result, he himself did not understand what he said! laughing

    That there is a UN Secretary General, that he is not there. Neither fish nor fowl.

      And the UN, too ... America has spawned satellite limitrophes. And any vote goes on their agenda, because formally the vote of some obscure Nauru "for" the American proposal balances out Russia's vote "against." China is like that cunning monkey from the parable - sits on a tree and abstains ... And if something dares against America, then it is worth saying "Fas!" and the Tribaltica alone will tear the Chinese voice to shreds with three voices.

      There is, of course, the UN Security Council and the Russian right of "veto", but America, if it learns that Russia can use it, simply sends the UN with all its Security Council forest and does what it wants ...

      It is interesting to recall the results of the vote on the resolution on combating the glorification of Nazism two years ago. Here it is, surfaced for whom the Nazis are heroes.
      Even the Tribalts with the Poles did not dare, as usual, to lick America's pops - they hid in a burrow.
      Maidanutye, no matter what, are always ready to support the Master. Even shit with a spoon. Well, Canada and America are understandable. We remember the operation "Paperclip" to evacuate Nazi criminals and where they were evacuated - therefore there are no questions to America or Canada ..

      Okay, at least 115 countries have not lost their brains and memory ... Then. ...
      And now some kind of "UN resolution on Navalny" will be pushed in - I think this "enlightenment" will not happen. And what the hell is the UN need?

    It's strange. None of the financial gurus speaks of the new Depression as a fait accompli .... There are horror stories, but so far in the "forecast" status. It is time for the refined official No. 1 to increase the effectiveness and objectivity of the UN, and not to engage in economic messiahship.

        Thanks for the advice, dear, I will be attentive. KhaZin and Delyagin have been repeating for many, many years that America and the Russian Federation “cannot” continue to live like this: “over-debt”, “evil offshore”, etc. ... They can, and the elites still feel great.
        And what does the crisis and the project of currency zones of the Obama times have to do with it ?? ... The crisis is "Grapes of Anger", "Knockdown", the fate of Remarque's heroes, closed banks, millions of demonstrators and hungry families ... And we see that Mr. DJ is in in wonderful shape, and workers rebel only for the right to have expensive entertainment.

    Guterres calls on the world's population for dialogue and cooperation
    Now, the Americans will just tie their shoelaces and immediately rush to dialogue and cooperation. The pandemic, especially at the initial stage, showed excellent results. how Americans "cooperate" with their allies, let alone others.
    expressed fear return to a bipolar world ... we need one global economy...
    And the secretary general turns out to be a globalist who is closer to the US dominance in the world and even calls for the observance of international law will not hide this.
