Quotes

"So, these are the major institutions and it is the G20 which is still dominated by the rich countries. So, from the G7 you can see how the US and its allies control everything. So, these are the major institutions of global economic government. They don’t have a voice, the IMF and the Bank in particular don’t have a voice for the majority of the world. And now this is a new period, I mean it is a more multipolar world. This is what BRICS is helping to give birth to. It is long overdue. China is the biggest economy in the world right now on a purchasing power parity basis. So, it is silly to have these institutions operating and managing as if we were living in the world of 1946."

"While in the hospital, his face had swollen to a degree to which he could not speak when conscious and blood was also found in his urine , concerning family that there could be internal bleeding" relatives say
