FGC BOLSA - FGC FINANCIAL MARKETS : The Puzzling of the Financial - Economic Debate depends On Us

The Puzzling of the Financial - Economic Debate Depends on Us  
By: Fernando Guzmán Cavero
Has been with us for a  long ..long time. Now called  Markets Manipulation. There is no doubt in my opinion, that the real magnitude of the actual  crisis is known by a very few on top of the Economic and political power.

When the Rolling Stones  composed the Sympathy for the devil, were blamed of satanic but if we read among lines the song was not an apology of Satanism at all , rather it was a claim against the injustice of the system they denounce as the devil. Let's get back to ethics otherwise the human race will end up in hell..

Listen carefully  this rock and roll song or read among lines in the  lyrics of the Rolling Stones, and let me know if it was not the prelude , of today's  unethical behaviour to accept that unless a profound restructuring of the Capitalist System is implemented all G-20 or G-7, monetary fund, World Bank is not but a Mask to retain desperately  the  World  Control  regardless of the means used .

It is not difficult to understand, this crisis. You do not need to be an economist with an advance knowledge of mathematics,  to understand,  where are the origins of  the present Financial and Economic Depression. All you need is listen carefully to this song or at least if do not like the music  get into its lyrics.   Here , there is no regression analyses, nor standard deviations, much less high level of mathematical comprehension.

Biden Visits Iraq, Offering Diplomacy Amid Impasse
BAGHDAD -- Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. landed here on
Saturday evening for a visit that signaled a desire by the
United States to step deeper into a four-month political
stalemate that has become a backdrop to the drawdown of
American forces this summer.
The visit is likely be seen by some through the prism of
American reengagement in Iraq, and an answer to critics who
say that the Obama administration has shown a lack of focus
in setting policy for the United States' future relationship
with Iraq.
Mr. Biden, who arrived here with his wife, Jill, has
scheduled a series of meetings with Iraq's political leaders.
Several political leaders welcomed his visit, expressing hope
that more robust American diplomacy could resolve the
country's political paralysis.
