Brazilian President calls for joint efforts to contain consequences of global economic crisis


25 September 2012 – One of the first world leaders to address the United Nations General Assembly’s high-level debate today, Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff called on countries to boost international efforts to tackle the global economic crisis, stressing that a balance must be found to stimulate growth while at the same time controlling public spending without resorting to extreme austerity measures.

“The grave economic crisis that began in 2008 has taken on new and worrisome contours,” she said. “The choice of orthodox fiscal policies has been worsening the recession in the developed economies, with repercussions for the emerging countries.”

Scores of the world’s heads of state and government and other high-level officials are attending the Assembly’s General Debate, at UN Headquarters in New York, and are expected to present their views and comment on issues of individual national and international relevance over the coming days.

In her remarks to the gathering, President Rousseff stressed that countries must find a path that combines appropriate fiscal adjustments with measures to stimulate investment and demand to halt the ongoing recession and ensure future economic growth.

More on the speech of President Dilma Rousseff in the UN:


Brazil Pres.: Defense of economy not protectionism

Emerging markets efforts to defend their economies from the effects of the global crisis cannot be classified as protectionism, Brazil's President Dilma Rousseff said Tuesday, as she called for a global pact to restart economic growth.

"We cannot accept that legitimate initiatives of commercial defense by developing countries can be classified as protectionism," Ms. Rousseff said in the opening head of state speech to the United Nations' General Assembly. "Protectionism and all the forms of commercial manipulation must be fought."

Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, the first national speaker at the U.N. General Assembly today, delivered a broadside against the United States, blasting Washington for subjecting “Dear Cuba” to an economic embargo that has “chastised” its people for too long. “Time has come to end this anachronistic” measure that enjoys virtually no support in the U.N. community, she said in remarks that veered from her official distributed speech. Rousseff also took aim at the West for its colonial past and for its failure to stop a wave of Islamophobia.

Someone needs to tell Brazil's president that they need to contain their illegal immigrant population from entering the United States. We don't like the consequences these savages cause us to suffer.....

Really?

Because last time I checked, the flux of Brazilians coming back from the USA to Brazil was much greater than the flux of new Brazilians going to live in the USA.




Maybe you may also want to prevent the Brazilian tourists from entering New York City and spending billions of dollars there.

But I think New Yorkers will really not like that idea:

That's certainly good news. Hopefully that trend continues. NY tourism doesn't do a thing for Eastern Massachusetts where these parasites are bleeding us dry with healthcare expenses, bilingual education expenses, and etc. Your oil industry also would not survive without taxpayer money from the USA. Brazil is certainly a net drain on our country that we don't need.

Do you also want that we expel the thousands of American immigrants here in Brazil?

the UN is a modern day version of "Our Gang Comdies". It is tree fort where role playing is encouraged and financed.

there is an equivalence between Iran's nuclear ambitions and the faux human caused global warming scam......its seems both will bring an end to life on earth. The apparent choice is to do something about the problem that we can't fix and allow the Iranian mad man to pursdue our eventual demise..a problem we can indeed resolve.

What a strange world is 'was'.
