ΟΡΓΗ ΛΑΟΥ – Οι «αγανακτισμένοι» του Εκουαδόρ ανάγκασαν σε απόσυρση της θανατηφόρας συμφωνίας της χώρας με το ΔΝΤ #Neocoño_Moreno

Μετά από 10 συνεχείς μέρες μαζικών διαδηλώσεων και οδομαχιών, ο λαός του Ισημερινού κατάφερε να οδηγήσει τον Πρόεδρο Μορένο στην απόσυρση της συμφωνίας με το ΔΝΤ. Σπουδαία εξέλιξη, παρότι υπάρχει ακόμη δρόμος για την απομάκρυνση του Ταμείου από τη χώρα

Ο πρόεδρος του Ισημερινού Λενίν Μορένο υπέγραψε χθες Δευτέρα διάταγμα με το οποίο ακυρώνεται η κατάργηση της επιδότησης της τιμής των καυσίμων, απόφαση που πυροδότησε δώδεκα ημέρες μαζικών κινητοποιήσεων και αιματηρών ταραχών, στις οποίες πρωτοστάτησαν οργανώσεις οι οποίες εκπροσωπούν τους αυτόχθονες.

Οι τιμές των καυσίμων, σύμφωνα με το νέο διάταγμα, θα επανέλθουν στα επίπεδα όπου βρίσκονταν πριν καταργηθεί από τα μεσάνυχτα [τοπική ώρα· 08:00 το πρωί της Τρίτης ώρα Ελλάδας].

Ο Μορένο ανέφερε ότι η κυβέρνησή του θα καταρτίσει νέους σχεδιασμούς ώστε να αντιμετωπίσει προβλήματα που συνδέονται με την επιδότηση των καυσίμων, ώστε να μην ωφελούν τους λαθρέμπορους και τους πλουσιότερους, και ότι οι τιμές θα συνεχίσουν να βρίσκονται στα προηγούμενα επίπεδα ωσότου να είναι έτοιμη η νέα νομοθεσία.

ΔΙΑΒΑΣΤΕ ΤΗΝ ΣΥΝΕΧΕΙΑ

A popular insurrection is unfolding against the adoption of sweeping IMF reforms imposed by the “centre left” government of President Lenin Moreno.

In March 2019, a 4.2 billion dollar IMF loan was granted to Ecuador.

“We are here to help you” says the IMF. Our objective is to help Ecuador “modernize its economy and pave the way for strong, sustained, and equitable growth.”

Nonsense

This loan agreement initiates a process of economic and social destruction. What is at stake is an engineered economic depression.

The Neocons in Washington are firmly behind the IMF’s deadly economic medicine.

Meanwhile, president Lenin Moreno, an alleged socialist and “Leninist” inspired by Russian Revolutionary Vladimir Lenin has fully endorsed the neoconservative agenda.

While President Lenin Moreno leads the centre-left Movimiento Alianza PAIS (Patria Altiva I Soberana), he is a “Neocon” in disguise, a US proxy: nicknamed President NeoCon Moreno. in Spanish Señor presidente Neo-coño Moreno.

 

In Quito in July, Secretary of State Pompeo welcomed “new” relations with Ecuador. ” A new era has begun”, not to mention the arrest of Julian Assange by British authorities in April.

The IMF’s Deadly Economic Medicine

It’s the standard IMF economic medicine, the so-called “economic package” (paquetazo) imposed on indebted countries. It sets the stage for a major dislocation of Ecuador’s national economy.

Quite deliberately, the policies of the IMF are intended to impoverish an entire country, take over Ecuador’s oil economy. The IMF acts on behalf of Wall Street and the “Washington Consensus”.

While the IMF policy conditionalities are couched in technical jargon, the objectives are crystal clear (emphasis added):

The authorities’ measures are geared towards strengthening the fiscal position and improving competitiveness and by so doing help lessen vulnerabilities, put dollarization on a stronger footing, and, over time, encourage growth and job creation.[Nonsensical statement]

“Achieving a robust fiscal position is at the core of the authorities’ program, which will be supported by a three-year extended arrangement from the IMF. The aim is to reduce debt-to- GDP ratio through a combination of a wage bill realignment, a careful and gradual optimization of fuel subsidies,”

“A combination of a wage bill realignment, a careful and gradual optimization of fuel subsidies”

Answer: Massive layoffs in the public sector, dramatic hikes in fuel prices, reduction in real wages, the privatization of pension funds, the privatization of health and education.

The price of diesel more than doubled overnight leading to the paralysis of public transportation. Gasoline prices increased by 29%.

The media will say that gasoline was subsidized. This is a misleading statement. Ecuador is the largest oil economy in South America after Venezuela. It has ample surpluses of crude oil. It sells oil locally at a price which is lower than the export price also with a view to supporting local industries. This is a standard practice in many oil producing economies.

These dramatic hikes in fuel prices contribute to destabilizing all major sectors of the national economy. They immediately trigger inflation and a collapse in purchasing power, the contribute to the paralysis of public transport as well as internal commodity trade.

Fake IMF Loan

The dollar denominated external debt of Ecuador has skyrocketed.

The $4.2 billion loan does not contribute to an increase in financial resources for Ecuador. Quite the opposite. The IMF loan is tagged for the reimbursement of Ecuador’s external debt obligations. It comes in and it goes out. New loans to pay back old debts. It is fake loan. What it does is to “subsidise” Ecuador’s external creditors.

We cannot pay our debt servicing obligations. No problem says the IMF: we will lend you the money and with that money you will pay us back, namely the IMF loan is a “safety net” for Ecuador’s external creditors, namely Wall Street.

Ecuador no longer has control over its fiscal and monetary policy.

It’s central bank has been transformed into a colonial style currency board.

The entire financial system is dollarised, namely the US Federal Reserve and Wall Street ultimately call the shots.

In a dollarised economy, internal debts become external debts expressed in US dollars.

An entire nation has been impoverished.

The external debt goes fly hight. Macro-economic policies are controlled by the creditors.
