A Panorama of Global Debt

In February 2015, the well-known consulting firm McKinsey published a report on the global debt situation as of 2014. The report is called «Debt and (not much) deleveraging» and is based on data from 47 countries around the world. These include the majority of economically developed countries and the largest developing countries... It is noteworthy that the debt levels of ‘golden billion’ countries (so-called economically developed countries) are significantly higher than those of the majority of developing countries...

RIC Wades into Asia-Pacific Waters

The meeting of the Russia-India-China [RIC] forum at the level of foreign ministers, which was held in Beijing on February 2, had an extraordinary setting. For sure, the power dynamic within the RIC is dramatically transforming what with the notable improvement in the climate of India-China relations in the past six-month period and with a big upswing in the Sino-Russian partnership, which in turn lends the forum much gravitas...

Paul Craig Roberts: Ruin Is Our Future

Neoconservatives arrayed in their Washington offices are congratulating themselves on their success in using the Charlie Hebdo affair to reunite Europe with Washington’s foreign policy. No more French votes with the Palestinians against the Washington-Israeli position. No more growing European sympathy with the Palestinians. No more growing European opposition to launching new wars in the Middle East. No more calls from the French president to end the sanctions against Russia.

Ukrainian Crisis and International Security (II)

...In recent years the UN failure has been exacerbated. The organization has frequently served as a cover for multiple non-government organizations operating in hot spots areas to serve the interests of US and West European structures... Many a time incompetent from legal point of view and politically motivated provocative speculations are offered to push for the international organization’s «reform» instead of nitty-gritty insight into the real reasons behind the ongoing crisis. Ukraine is leading the race. The objective of its attacks is the permanent Security Council’s members’ right of veto. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko calls on the UN to deprive Russia of its permanent seat in the Security Council... The establishment of the United Nations Organization with its present structure and principles is a major result of WWII. Is the UN in for the same fate as the League of Nations? Will the world community let it happen?

Сhina - Europe: New Alliance? (II)

Hungary and Serbia are the main recipients of Chinese investments in Central and Eastern Europe. According to estimates, China has invested a few billions of euros in their economy. As of 2013, China invested €300 million in Poland and €114 million in Romania. ... Besides, in late October China took a decision to grant Montenegro a €687 loan to fund its part of the high-speed railway. At the same time, Beijing signed a preliminary agreement with Bosnia and Herzegovina on funding a 62-km highway. The goal is to build an integrated pan-Balkan transport infrastructure. Adding to the Piraeus port upgrade project, the Danube Bridge opening ceremony took place at the time of the China and Central and Eastern European Countries meeting.

Сhina - Europe: New Alliance? (I)

The United States and the EU continue the policy of confrontation with Russia in Europe and the post-Soviet space against the background of China’s growing clout and stronger influence on European affairs. The China’s global contribution is not limited by fast moving consumer goods. Today it leadsthe United States in GDP adjusted for purchasing power parity. The country seeks to play a leading role in such international organizations as BRICS, the Shanghai Cooperation Organization and bilateral relationships. Soon China may launch an economic stimulus package comparable with the quantitativeeasing program implemented by US Federal Reserve System.

The Year US-led Capitalism Became Exposed as Root of Global Conflict

Historians may look back on 2014 as a defining watershed in geopolitical events, the year when the limit of American power was exposed as a waning entity and the contemporary root of global conflict... This year saw Russia and China cement strategic trade and energy partnerships that promise, through legitimate means, to deal a death blow to the decrepit American dollar as the world’s reserve currency... In sum, this was the year that the Washington-Brussels axis was seen as a spent global force. Regime change agendas in the Middle East and Ukraine have led the world into even deeper crisis... A century ago, the powers-that-be could get away with reckless warmongering because their monopoly control of information and propaganda was unassailable. In a new age of global communications and ever-rising alternative channels of information, the tendency of conflict inherent in Western powers may still be a danger – but it is being exposed for all to see. In the year ahead the battle for truth, justice and peace is very much on… and winnable...

2014: Two Events that Shook the World

The year 2014 has been a sensational year. It is the year that some hasten to bookmark as the year World War III began unobtrusively, stealthily, inexorably – involving as-yet indeterminate contestants. The tumultuous arrival of the Islamic Caliphate spearheaded by the Islamic State, the outbreak of the Ebola virus, kidnapping of 200 schoolgirls by Boko Haram – the year has had its fair share of blood-curdling events. It has been the year that the US economy showed credible signs of recovery, but in which the US also admitted defeat in a half-century old campaign to bring the Cuban revolution down on its knees... However, it is two major international developments that form a cluster by itself because of their profound impact on the future trajectory of world order. They are: the crisis in Ukraine and the emergence of China as the world’s largest economy...

China, Russia Sign CNY150 Billion Local-Currency Swap As Plunging Oil Prices Sting Putin

While it is beyond a doubt that the primary catalyst for Europe's triple-dip recession has been the nearly two quarters and counting of escalating Russian sanctions that were supposed to solely harm Putin (because who could have possibly foreseen that plunging German exports to Russia would have a far greater impact on the export-driven German economy), the truth is that the Kremlin itself is starting to hurt, if not so much as a result of the European trade embargo but mostly due to crashing oil prices, which have been driven lower almost exclusively by Saudi Arabia as part of its most recent secret bargain with the US, a bargain which as we read today is likely to tear OPEC apart.

China Challenges US Economic War against Russia by Directly Challenging NATO Power

Directly challenging the NATO powers’ policy of cutting off credit to Russia to undermine the ruble and bankrupt the Russian economy, China is pledging to extend financial aid to Moscow. On Saturday, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi stressed the need for mutual aid between China and Russia in remarks on the ruble crisis, which has seen a drastic 45 percent fall in its value against the dollar this year.

Reasons for Hryvnia’s Collapse

By the end of «black Wednesday», Feb. 25, the Ukrainian currency exchange rate went down to 33 hryvnias to the dollar and never bounced back. It also plummeted as low as 50-60 hryvnias at the black market to stay there. The official rate was around 15 hryvnias to the dollar in mid-February... In general, the reason for the currency collapse is the economic crisis transforming into a national disaster. Ukrainian Prime minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk has acknowledged recently that the economy dropped 20 % in 2014... According to the recently published forecasts, the GDP is to fall by 5, 5 % in 2015. The yearly inflation is estimated to be 25-26%. The crisis has also spread to banks...
