Moves against the IMF

Posted by Gerald on June 11, 2007

Vladimir Putin is calling for a reorganization of the international financial system.  Like Hugo Chávez’s call for the creation of a “Banco del Sur” I think this has to be seen as being primarily motivated by a desire to lessen American economic influence.

Whether either of these proposals can or will work is a different question.

    Okay, so I’m breezing through your recent blog postings… and you’ve had plenty of comments about the Sopranos ending, but nothing about this… Hmmm…

    In the hour after posting the first response to “The Sopranos” last night I received 257 hits on this blog. That was more than I had total since starting to write it (I usually get about 15 a day.)
