Ending Tax Havens

Risk of economic slowdown. He says the G20 group of 19 rich and emerging countries plus the European Union. The European Central Bank (ECB) also is very concerned about rising inflation, five tenths in the euro region. The G20 alarm somewhat and the ECB is threatening to raise interest rates. The Central Bank of Spain, to make matters worse, knowing that prices had risen slightly in October, proposed wage moderation.

More? According to the OECD herself in seven years, from 1999 to 2006, labor costs increased 3.7% a ridiculous Spain. In that same period, corporate profits grew by 73%. Should we say more? The excessive concern about inflation and economic slowdown may camouflage more serious problems that really gangrenous global economy. Of course, the runaway inflation is a real danger to ordinary citizens, for small and medium enterprises. And carries a considerable economic downturn suffering for most people, but up to the altar of inflation and economic growth smelly. It may be recalled, for example, that Brazil has grown during every one of the twentieth century, but also increased the poor and inequality: a rich minority and an impoverished majority. And is not the only case. Perhaps there are other reasons besides inflation, the economy does not work at all and the world's wealth is so unequally distributed. Why do not you worry a little, just a little, the Central Bank, G8, G20, IMF, World Bank, OECD, WTO and company get their hands on the ill-fated 'tax havens', such centers designated by the euphemism offshore? One of the biggest scams in the world, indeed.

Latin America

The task fit Portugal to find a form of economic use of the American lands that was not to the easy metal extration. With passing of the years, Brazil colony presented characteristic traces of its agrarian economy, being distinguished it diversity of some economic zones where if it divides the country, precariousness of the small agriculturist/farmer, subordination of the work force and the great agricultural exploration. It is in this context that if had developed what conventionally it is called economic cycles, being distinguished the cycle of the sugar, the coffee, the rubber and ores. If you are unsure how to proceed, check out Julie Sweet. One of the main cycles of Brazil and, more specifically of the Amaznia, was the cycle of the rubber (1850-1920). At the beginning of this cycle the investments were made by the inhabitants of the region. The used archaic technology worried and inhibited the foreign investors, mainly the Europe and the United States.

No longer final of the Century it had the formation of great company, financed for foreign capital, intensifying the rubber production. Weinstein Barbarian tells that during most of the decade of 1890, few foreign investors had revealed made use to risk its capital in the land purchase, however for return of the end of the decade many American European firms and north had put of side its restrictions and had started to buy vast properties in the Amaznia. Many problems had been created: agrarian problems, as the property of the land, migration and exploration of the workmanship hand, disrespect to the customs and traditions local and not incentive the workmanship hand. In the height of the expansion of the rubber, Belm was one of the main cities of Latin America. In Brazil, after Rio De Janeiro and of Saints, Belm possua the put into motion port more. With an urban population that if approached to 250 a thousand inhabitants, in 1910, possua an infra structure of country of first world, from there to be known as ' ' The Paris of the Trpicos' ' , however with the collapse of the rubber it lost this superiority and it was also exceeded by other capitals, Manaus, having remained only the good souvenirs of that time.

Compassion And Generosity

I have put the title of Compassion and Generosity, but also it could have been Solidarity and Empathy, or To be human and to demonstrate it. Because I am going away to refer the situation that is being lived at world-wide level, in which we were many people begging, or without daring to say it or shouting it in the street with its sad gesture and its sonrojada glance fleeing to the ground, and its extended hand, trembly and shamed. We see dresses them of its poverty and its misfortune, taking to hills, like a cross, its bad luck or the few opportunities that the life has given them, with its full past of emptinesses and grief, their destitute present, and a future that does not dare to appear in view of which it hopes to him next to those people. We see humiliated, showing them to its misfortune and its shortage, with fear in the eyes, almost requesting excuses not to be around the rest, over which yes we prevailed or at least we create therefore it and we pretended, teaching its failure to us with hard crudity. Often I have lucubrated envelope what must feel one person who decides that on the following day she will go out, it will be placed in a corner, and, perhaps made kneel, it will extend the suplicante hand.

What must feel each one of the seconds that happen asking. How many watched from scorn it will receive and what few of love or consolation. One will feel left by God, and repudiada by the amiable destiny? , It will think about his parents and their loved beings, that without a doubt they will suffer by her, or will think only about which has not been able to occur to itself or to its children? , It will conclude with the thought, atrocious and tremendous, but perhaps real, of which to not it must nothing him to the life? How many times we found out that there is people malviviendo, needing attention and food, and we remained without doing nothing except for supporting, brief and slightly, a pity pinch, and to ask to our God that never we see ourselves in that situation.

Europe Industries

The gotten resources would serve to the implantation of industries work-intensive that they would help in the insertion of parcels of groups 1 and 2 in the exploitation of the conquests of the economic development. Valley to remember that this parcel of the society concentrated 90% of the population, however making use only of 58,7% of the income total4. This process of income redistribution would take TIME and the military regimen needed results macroeconomic and social, if possible, fastest possible. The process of substitution of the importations took care of the industries of simple good, as txteis and foods, whereas in the modernization of the national industry, the implemented plant was capital-intensive, producing good of high aggregate value and destined to the middle classes and high. Products as automobiles, recorders ‘ ‘ hi-fi’ ‘ , machines to wash, for example, were produced by these sophisticated dynamic industries and each time more.

The proposal of Stolen would affect the consumers of these products (valuation of the income) e, not if it must forget, the regimen was lead for members of middle class and supported by the high classroom. Then, what one became was to equally stimulate the concentration of the income in the expectation of that at some time the Brazilian economy would go to incorporate the excluded ones (1 group and part of 2), as what it occurred in the industrial revolution in Europe and the USA. However the new industrial plant was capital-intensive, while in European and American, work-intensive industrialization. This process of concentration was defended by Dolphin, alleging that she was necessary to make ‘ ‘ bolo’ ‘ to grow stops later dividiz it. Picture I – PROFILE OF the GLOBAL DEMAND IN BRAZIL Groups % of the Population Population (1.000) percapita Income (US$) total Income (US$1.000, 00) % of the income 1 50 45,000 130 5,850 18,6 2 40 36,000 350 12,600 40.1 3 9 8,100 880 7,128 22,7 4 1 900 6,500 5,850 18,6 Total 100 90,000 350 31,428 100 the model of Netto Dolphin, benefiting the income concentration, had the objective to keep the demand of the goods and services produced for companies who used tip technology. These modern the new period initiated in 1964 as basic step to the guard of the national sovereignty and replacement of Brazil in the way of the development.

The construction of the transamaznica highway, megalmica workmanship, served to keep the spirit of the defense of the domestic territory in high, as well as effectively announced a construction the height of one ‘ ‘ great governo’ ‘ , as it was Belm-Brasilia for the Juscelino government.
