GORDON BROWN AT WEF ON REFORM
by Eric V. Encina
At the World Economic Forum
at Davos, Switzerland this January 2008, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown has
suggested for the revamping of international institutions, saying that those
systems and policies created decades ago are no longer up to dealing with today's
He said that politicians alone could not meet UN goals set in 2000
to solve the world's most pressing problems, and so government should join
efforts with the private sectors, non-governmental organizations, faith groups
Prime Minister Gordon Brown was
the featured guest at the World Economic Forum in Switzerland at its annual
meeting. He addressed some major concerns about the present world economy as one
of the main focuses at the annual gathering of world political and economic
leaders against the backdrop of a US downturn that threatens to mutate if not
addressed well into a world recession.
Gordon Brown is seemed to be a kind of
Western-based leader who is attuned to economic and political reform. And
hopefully MONETARY REFORM! He warned against over-acting, such as resorting to
"heavy-handed regulation," despite of a "testing time for the global economy",
while also rejecting the other side of the coin - "being gripped by or paralyzed
Prime Minister Gordon Brown said: "We are in a period
that if we don't reform our global institution (they) become irrelevant," making
a case for the creation of a "rapid response agency" that dispatches not only
to trouble spots, but police, lawyers and other experts needed to rebuild
society in "failed states". I HOPE THE REFORM HE IS TALKING ABOUT WOULD BE FOR
THE BETTER AND THE EMANCIPATION OF THE POOR INHABITANTS OF THE EARTH FROM THE
He said that "THE IMF AND THE WB AND THE UNITED NATIONS
WERE BUILT FOR PROBLEMS IN THE 1950'S. HE IS CALLING FOR REFORMS TO MEET THE NEW
CHALLENGES OF GLOBALIZATIONS, CLIMATE CHANGE AND RE-ESTABLISHING ORDER IN
Another very good specific suggestion of Prime
Minister Brown is the TRANSFORMATION OF THE WORLD BANK OR WB into 'THE WORLD BANK
FOR THE ENVIRONMENT AND DEVELOPMENT' - an institution that would stand ready to
underwrite funds for developing countries looking to turn from carbon-based fuels
to alternative energies.
He also called for revamping the UN that peacekeeping
must be linked to stabilization , reconstruction and development to avoid
failed-state status in developing countries driven by war and other crises.
said that "You cannot have a situation where you have failed states and it takes
years and years for the world community to do anything."
Brown spoke bleaky of
lack of progress in meeting a 15-year global development plan, set in 2000 by
global leaders to alleviate world poverty, diseases and hunger then known as
MILLENNIUM DEVELOPMENT GOALS.
I laud Prime Minister Brown for being a
reform-minded UK official which I hope he would consider in the future to speak
the same tone of conviction to REFORM the financial-economic system from
debt-based money creation to debt-free money creation scheme in the UK and in the
world to remedy such world problems.
