Governor Roberto Requiao defended on the morning of Tuesday (09), the strengthening of Mercosur and the adoption of money appropriated for South America, so that it would not be so dependent on the U.S. currency. "We need to have our market, that is not dependent on the dollar," he said. Requiao had an interview to RTVE, before the international seminar "Crisis - Directions and Truths", promoted by the government of the State in the Music Channel at Curitiba.

Liebig, editor of Portal-www.solon, said to believe that the crisis makes room for the birth of a multipolar world, with the rise of the G-20, the chance and the obligation "of the European Union play a key moderator roll and a retreat of the power of the United States, "because of the exceptional severity of this crisis." "We do not share the negative view of some colleagues here about the G-20. Probably the criticisms are correct, yet the G-20 is to formalize the death of the G7, "he said.

According to the Russian specialist Yuri Gromyko, the nations to get rid of the crisis immediate measures alone are not enough - "what is already a fierce battle" - that have been announced. The time must be used for a broad reform in the financial system, and that financial institutions are used to promote the renewal of European industrial countries.

The mediator of the debate, the journalist and political scientist Cesar Benjamin , noted that international standards of organization were in centuries past, defined after major wars, at a conference convened by the victorious nations. The maximum was repeated after the Napoleonic wars, with the Conference of Vienna, and after the First World War, the Conference of Versal.

Benjamin explained that the same happened in Breton Woods, in 1944, which set the global reorganization under a new leadership after the Second World War. In 1989, this cycle has been broken since the war between the United States and the Soviet Union did not happen. "Exactly so, there was not a conference and was not finalized what was expected," he said.

According to the journalist, in the United States of the 1990s, neocons resolved reorganize the financial order. "The U.S. policy, from 1990 until now, is the vision of the world from the perspective of a potential winner of a war that did not happen. How is it possible to identify the agents that may offer a new world financial order? "He asked.

Ryner disputed the claims that the EU could be a counter-weight to the economic and financial power of the U.S.. He says the EU is much more dependent on the U.S. economy than is disclosed. "Today, the European structure favors the U.S. economy. Those who predicted a European counter weight to American hegemony underestimate the structural weakness of Europe ", examined.

The economist Marcio Henrique Castro, from Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, sees a bleak picture of the world that can emerge from this economic and financial crisis. Worse than the Depression, economist alerts to the emergence of a solution that can lead to barbarism in the world, replacing the current economic and financial system.

It is not enough, just in a real flow, you regain the ability of companies, said Assis. It is vital we rescue and lessen the degree of indebtedness of households. People have to consume, but es not enough to give them the capacity to consume, if they are indebted. We have to create ways of ensuring that the resources go in a direct way to reach families, allowing them to breath new capacity and consumption, "he said.

Carrasco rescued the ideas of Frenchman Jean-Baptiste Colbert (1619-1683), as an example of opposition to the credit system based on private initiative. "He argued that the tax credit should be the primary function of the state. This is not Marxism, is precisely the answer of a society to stamp hegemonic colonialism, "he said.

The Mexican journalist, sociologist and political scientist Lorenzo Carrasco, said during his presentation at this Tuesday (9), at the International Crisis seminar - Towards True, that the current financial upheaval stems from the very model of central banks, especially from the creation in 1913, of the Federal Reserve System in the United States. "Every system of central banks failed, that is the problem. With the geopolitical changes that will come, who will continue to lead the credit in the world organization, will be the same? "He said.

Franklin Serrano, an economist from Rio de Janeiro who participates in discussions sponsored by the State Government said, unlike many other speakers of the seminar Crisis: Towards True, that the bet on multipolarity is not at the moment, the best exit for countering the effects of global crisis. The statement was made here Tuesday (9), during the panel "Crisis and the role of China, U.S., Russia and India." He proposes an effective intervention of the U.S. government to help the disadvantaged sectors and stabilize the U.S. economy. "The U.S. credit policy is retracted," he said.
