Despertar da Mente

"Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word, equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude." Alexis de Tocqueville

The People's Republic of America?

Jorge A.

A propósito das mais recentes noticias, que dão conta de um possível empréstido da reserva federal norte-americana à AIG, vale a pena ler este artigo

But before any money is lent by the Fed to AIG, even on the conditions outlined above, I would like to have the social cost-benefit analysis of this proposed transaction explained to me. Where is the market failure? Where are the systemic externalities associated with requiring AIG to sink or swim on its own? If the Fed were to provide funding to AIG, then, unless a convincing public interest/social welfare case is made (and I have not seen a single sensible argument in support of such an act), I would have to conclude that the political economy of the US had become one of crony capitalism and socialism for the rich and the well-connected.

Entretanto, o mercado russo foi ao fundo:

Russian shares suffered their steepest one-day fall in more than a decade on Tuesday, losing up to 20 per cent, as a sharp slide in oil prices and difficult money market conditions triggered a rush to sell.

Os americanos estão com impulsos socialistas e os russos sofrem, e de que forma, com a baixa do preço do petróleo.
