we tried it for other day this is. top stories now at this hour the head of the e.u. calls for yet more money to be made available to struggling economies as italy and spain slide towards debt and distress and the cost of borrowing so. the un condemns the use of force against civilians in syria and calls on all sides to end hostilities amid continued violence across the country. and
12:31 pm
a failed palestinian suicide bomber tells r.t. about her new mission of peace to be called before detonating her device she says she wants to use a second chance to promote tolerance between israelis and palestinians. the financial troubles piling up in both the euro zone and the u.s. may feel like a relatively recent phenomena at the former head of russia's central bank says that the that's been swirling around for ages and actually tells r.t. how it's being used as a political problem that's an all special interview next. hello and thank you very much for being here he became head of the central bank when russia began pursuing its shock therapy policy following advice from american accidents how would you advise your american colleagues now with the situation they are facing. to live within your means that's all that's just what they told
12:32 pm
us back then with no idea at all about our economic and social situation at the time that was in one nine hundred ninety two when we began well parts of the government began to listen to their advice after russia joined the i.m.f. that year later they wrote and the famous stiglitz a nobel laureate and former economic advisor to clinton was among them that they were doing everything wrong but they were telling us was all wrong. if we think about the ability to lead within one's means who's better at that russia bag than or today's usa. you see the u.s.s.r. was living on credit of course but it was solvent and other states were eager to give credit even the us though the latter wasn't doing it directly but through european affiliates they all knew after all that the soviet economy was under control and that the country would pay its debts sooner or later even without high
12:33 pm
oil prices that's why they were eager to give credit to the u.s.s.r. especially to finance the purchase of high tech goods to be supplied to the soviet market in fact is go but after nine hundred thirty two a time of crisis for the us america wouldn't sell the u.s.s.r. complete production facilities like a car planted so yeah he or chemical plants of which the u.s.s.r. had brought for four billion dollars worth and which had played their part in its technical progress but anyway this all unions credit rating was quite high it has been easy for the us to take credit because of the entire system that's been built up since nine hundred forty five when the i.m.f. was being set up there was a heated dispute between the u.k. and the us of course the british had to back off because their economy had been greatly damaged by the war that later led to the devaluation of the pound some years after the war in fact all of europe was living off the marshall plan back then and that consisted mostly of agricultural commodities along with some industrial plants and factories that had depleted their technological potential
12:34 pm
ones that the us didn't need anymore this in part was the reason for the america's technological leap over more recent years though with production capacities growing rapidly in the third world the share of production in america's g.d.p. has been shrinking that's how america began to live on credit and living on credit is always difficult as the time may come sooner or later when debts will have to be paid off because right now nobody wants to remember that it was really early nineties when bush and the republicans came to power that the us external state that pertained by issuing treasury. bonds with different terms so anything from one week to twenty years and the interest rates grew massively right now it has been increased still further so generally it all happened under the republican rule my question is then why all the hubbub now it's just political gain nothing more. than our college time do you think the usa has left before it has to start leaving
12:35 pm
within its means to work with you go to. where you see speaking of the country's gold reserves with us as our only joint the i.m.f. in one thousand nine hundred two although it was among its founders back in one hundred forty five the soviet delegation took part in all relevant discussions and we even managed to secure the right to keep our contribution to the capital of the world bank in gold the reserves of which stalin was very keen to control the gold was to be kept in the u.s.s.r. with the i.m.f. having the right to come at any time to check it was still there and hadn't been sold the u.s.s.r. could join the i.m.f. before december the first nine hundred forty five then the head of the state planning committee was there since he stepped in and said we came out of the war so poor that if we gather and file all the stops required by the i.m.f. all we'll see is how much we actually lost in the war so we better not join i am f. rules dictate that any country's currency reserves resulting from a good balance of payments and without a budget deficit should be kept abroad either in dollars or in gold well it would
12:36 pm
be ridiculous to buy gold the price of which tended to swing all the way from eight hundred dollars to four hundred dollars an ounce in one year the us never maintained gold prices even though it used to be thirty five dollars an ounce and nine hundred seventy one president nixon raised the seventy dollars an ounce went to gold collected all dollars throughout france and sent them to the us who were asking to exchange them for gold and gold content of the dollar was devalued what everyone keeps quiet about that they began living on credit the good only keep your currency either in gold or in a currency that was used in ninety percent of world. at the time and so did our country even though now we kept it in dollars euros and even in a small part of swiss francs or something of that kind since two thousand and two the us to some extent lives in debt to the entire world and that isn't right. such as the us managed to avoid a technical default but what was the threat to the whole world if us declared to
12:37 pm
the vault it wouldn't have been able to repay treasury bonds it issued according to the limits set by congress to the ministry of finance or to the us government report of the us president the government head so we wouldn't be able to replace them with new bonds in time you know what happens within the country if they reach a compromise to cut their expenses. this has no explicit connection to the situation within their country on the other hand the dollar exchange rate including cash immediately drops on the world markets and the exchange rate for securities traded around the world drops as well in spite of the fact they are issued by u.s. companies so they incur bookkeeping losses at the very least and perhaps even real financial losses to a large extent the debt was formed under the bush presidency the war in iraq and their role in the afghanistan conflict of course huge military expenses and in effect the whole world including our country has been funding those military costs
12:38 pm
their budget deficit and their balance of payments deficit if the growth is that asshole one year if we talk about expenses the prove to us military budget for these here alone is about seven hundred billion dollars and frankly speaking there are no reasons to believe that these military expenses will be reduced he believed this could be possible. i believe that globalization which has been happening for a while now and which hasn't been given much to developing or third world countries will result in some kind of collapse. since nine hundred forty b. us has raised in. ninety times it's become standard procedure but now the situation has progressed to the point of shaking the world's markets and the world was threatened with a known economic territory how did that happen. to a large extent in the one nine hundred sixty s. or seventy's ninety percent of the international settlements were in dollars that
12:39 pm
was between countries that weren't even connected with the u.s. there eurozone was established to start giving up national currencies even of those some european countries like denmark didn't join it nonetheless the dollar remains the key settlement currency everyone needed dollars and often required dollars rather than any other currency therefore the dollar became the worldwide currency but a world wide spread also calls for world wide responsibility and the u.s. authorities didn't show enough of that responsibility and i mean the number of economists called the actions of the u.s. financially irresponsible do you agree or is it rather a kind of game for the sake of their own interests. from the viewpoint of economic theory there is a certain irresponsibility larouche you're famous american economists of perhaps french canadian origin about ten years ago said that the u.s. economy considering its domestic and foreign economic policy is bound to face a crash like the roman empire. ratings full economic players central banks will
12:40 pm
obviously change the structure of their reserves can as dumping the u.s. treasury happen and what implications can we expect. what else is there for them given our chinese colleagues in spite of their trade surplus with the u.s. and their own willingness to revalue their currency still keep most of their phones in dollars even though they use them actively to penetrate the development of african and asian economies to develop their infrastructure and so on. there's nowhere to go the world is established in a unique polar way you can't just get out of a marriage especially when you have kids. but thank you very much. the people of the united states and our friends and allies will not live at the

complete its work. we were all wrong probably in my judgment. and that is most disturbing. sometimes the true patriot takes the unpopular course but helps a country of wooden stakes and even if they come this way at least the track patriotism is the last refuge of scoundrels and i think these are scoundrels they have no argument about they have no defense for what they did the country is in a terrible international security situation and i think it's perilous so they're attacking the patriotism of others.
