Greta Thunberg proposed the UN General Assembly to deny the achievements of human civilisation, neglect economic development and material well-being for the sake of saving nature. This “positive agenda” is not new, it was made a reality in the Baltic states after the USSR collapsed. They fought the so-called “legacy of occupation” using ecological slogans. This all resulted in the complete degradation of the Baltic states. The Western liberal ruling elite promotes the programme of the future through Greta. This programme is extremely regressive as it denies human creative powers, science and progress and proposes the past to the world. The Baltic states made this programme of deliberate simplification, degradation, and archaisation real. Under the mottoes for saving nature, they run through the Bacchanalia of de-industrialisation and de-intellectualisation. The Baltic States can take some credit for the ecological situation though. The remaining small population only happens to be bothered by beavers and wild boars walking in downtown Riga. Hence, the path proposed by Greta Thunberg leads to the dying-out as the case of the Baltic states proves.
The IMF mission summed up the disappointing results of two-weeks work in Ukraine. The new IMF lending program to Ukraine has not yet been approved, because no one in the world, especially in the rotting capitalist West, wants to lend to the Ukrainian government. The official reasons for refusing a three-year loan are corruption, oligarchs and low economic growth rates.
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) mission visited Kyiv during 12-26 September, to hold discussions for the 2019 Article IV consultation with Ukraine. The mission also initiated discussions on a new programme that could be supported under the IMF’s Extended Fund Facility (EFF).
According to the official press release, while the IMF acknowledges Ukraine's shortcomings in the legal framework, pervasive corruption, and that large parts of the economy dominated by inefficient state-owned enterprises or by oligarchs, it still appreciated the progress made so far in setting up new institutions to fight corruption. The new programme was not rejected and is still being discussed before the final decision is taken.
"The mission has had productive discussions on policies for a new programme, especially on fiscal and monetary policies, as well as key reform measures. It also underscored the importance of central bank independence and safeguarding financial stability, as well as the need to make every effort to minimise the fiscal costs of bank resolutions. Discussions on the new programme will continue in the coming weeks," claims the document.
