Por Federico Mayor, Martí Olivella, Roberto Savio

DICIEMBRE 2010 (IPS TerraViva) – La historia nos juzgar√° severamente si no somos capaces de dar respuesta a los retos y oportunidades que la crisis global nos plantea. En vez de financiar con 50.000 millones de d√≥lares la reducci√≥n de la pobreza, pactada como uno de los Objetivos del Milenio, el consenso gobernante ha dedicado 50 veces m√°s para salvar a los bancos especuladores que son demasiado grandes para dejarlos caer”, contradiciendo su propia doctrina neoliberal de que el mercado se autoregula y que los gobiernos no deben intervenir.
