ROME (AFP) — The world's richest nations called Saturday for urgent reform of global finance to save the world from the economic devastation that is dragging more and more countries into recession.
Italy's Finance Minister called for a "new world economic order" as he wrapped up the crisis meeting of finance leaders from the Group of Seven leading economies over which he presided here.
In a joint declaration, the G7 called for "urgent reforms" of the international financial system.
Tremonti said a so-called set of "legal standards" discussed in Rome would be presented at a meeting of 20 key advanced and emerging economies (G20) in London in April and a summit of the Group of Eight (G8) world powers in July.
"A new world economic order might seem rhetorical," he told reporters. "But it is a true goal we should be aiming towards... today right here in Rome we've embarked on a very significant journey, both technical and ethical."
Those who believe everything will fall apart and that "Road Warriors" will take to the streets and reclaim America Founding Fathers style are sincerely self deluded.
The blood suckers who engineered this current economic catastrophe are downright giddy at the prospects of "doctoring up" the markets and creating a new Beast to rage against the people.
Many of the those who today fear a coming Police State will be marching through the streets demanding one before all is said and done.
Because it's one thing to be without basic necessities in a racially, culturally and religiously homogeneous society of 100 million. It's another thing to be without basic necessities in a multicultural cesspit of 340 million who do not speak the same language, worship the same god or share similar ethics and morals.
In those fractured and volatile societies only one type of government can be implemented and sustained....a militaristic dictatorship.
But hey, thinking is what elected officals are for. So just go back to watching the game and leave you and your family's fate in the hands of the "experts".
Oh, and pay no attention to that man behind the curtain....
