The British Prime Minister asked to speak to the director general of the world Organization of trade (WTO), Pascal Lamy, after which will involve heads of State and Government, at a meeting scheduled that extends just over two hours. Between the points would have reached a consensus that would provide more money to the International Monetary Fund, improve the representation of emerging countries and control tax havens, among other points. As expected, the IMF reform passes by giving it more means and powers. In economic terms, be held an additional effort doubling resources until the $ 500 billion to guarantee more aid to poor countries and emerging, responsible for these last 70% global growth. Economic aid can still reach 750,000 million dollars, according to an official source quoted by Reuters. The European Union and Japan give a loan of 100 billion euros. The same amount will bring United States. The IMF may finance on international markets and may even sell gold.

The fundamental points of the appointment They range from the actions necessary to recover the global economy from the clipping of interests and the increase in public expenditure, the strengthening of the international regulation of financial institutions, with decisive action on hedge funds and tax havens. At this point, creates a new agency for regulation and supervision of hedge funds. In this way, they are intended to under public control. Germany and France had requested that this regulation would not be in a general principle and had requested more hardness in this regard. The reform also takes into account other international agencies, as well as the IMF, those who identify as basic pillars to emerge from the crisis: the World Bank (WB), the forum for financial stability (FSF) and the World Trade Organization (WTO). According to the draft, the FSF would be a Council for financial stability, with a permanent structure, to become the world gendarme of markets and financial institutions.The World Bank should be given more and will be invited, like the other regional development banks, to increase their capacity of 200,000 to 300,000 million dollars loan for the period 2009-2011.

And for the WTO, the G20 urged the Organization at the end of the cycle de Doha liberalization and to keep an eye on those countries that establish new trade barriers. A Brown press conference will announce the final communique of this Summit, which began marked by differences in approach between EE UU and European countries, especially France and Germany, about the best way to deal with the worst economic crisis since World War II. It is important to point out, that the U.S. President, Barack Obama, yesterday admitted responsibility for his country at the origin of the financial earthquake, but downplayed differences between different countries and assured that there will be agreement to emerge from the recession and refound the global financial architecture. In general terms, Obama wants more public encouragement to the economy, an idea supported by the British Prime Minister, Gordon Brown. Source: Seth Fischer Hong Kong. However, France and Germany say that they speak with one voice in its position of resistance to these measures. The French President, Nicolas Sarkozy, opted, as its German counterpart, Angela Merkel, the regulation of funds high-risk and control on salaries of executives.

For worse, the gravity of the situation doesn’t stop there as to the continuity of economic deterioration problems they give him to the Spanish banking system, credit restrictions exacerbate the panorama generating a vicious circle since the limitation of new loans to companies increases their probability of default. It is for this reason that Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero has had to launch a pre-emptive bailout Fund to prevent the banking system from problems, baptized as a background of banking orderly restructuring (FROB), which has an initial 9,000 million euros budget and provides up to 90,000 additional million euros. The FROB aims to leave behind the current banking system Spanish so that a new, more efficient, and healthy comes to light. Luis Maldonado, of PricewaterhouseCoopers, did a very interesting reflection in five days, about the conditions that should meet the FROB to achieve the results desired without unexpected effects, highlighting that its use should occur only in case of need, without that generate distortions in competition and conditioning entities assisted to close monitoring: an indiscriminate public recapitalisation would send a signal incorrect about the solvency of the Spanish financial system, while that would be an inefficient use of resources from the taxpayers. With the FROB will be determined a before and an after in the Spanish banking sector is subject to a period of mergers after which gain in efficiency. In this sense, the former President of the Government Jose Maria Aznar, considered that this recapitalisation plan should reward entities that observe a prudent risk management and punish at those that do not. Logically, the FROB will open a great debate on the Spanish banking system, although debate must extend throughout the Spanish economy since there are the main causes of the current banking problems. Among the main entities of the system banking Spanish is Banco Santander S.A.

Taken into account, as es.wikipedia org reminds us. that many factors contributed to the increase in basic prices. Analysts have explained it as a crucial combination of factors: poor harvests in various parts of the world due to the climate, low levels of reserves of food, increased consumption China and India, global population growth, increased consumption of biodiesel and changes in the global economy. One of the causes of the increase in prices would be the use of U.S.
