you're watching are you going to live in moscow they had lines president putin shares his views on global affairs exclusively with r t you have a gathering of countries responsible for half of the world's upon it said to take place in russia's far east over the weekend. police fired tear gas and shotguns outside anti-government demonstrators demanding equal rights from the country's sunni rulers one person was critically injured in the clashes activists into the streets in protest of field seven games a prominent activist. and the democrats named barack obama their candidate for u.s.
president as the rally support for his campaign but his last four years have been dogged by broken promises as well as the country's growing debt and unemployment. up next argues laura smith's interviews a foreign chief accountant for the european commission marta anderson as she gives us her take on the status of the e.u. . as european politicians go back to school after the summer break i'm talking to m.e.p.a. martyr and dress and who used to be the european commission's chief accountant with the eurozone crisis rumbling on we're talking about her predictions for the challenges that face the european union in the next season marchand us and thanks very much for talking to us today now in your leaders have been bracing themselves for a market panic over the summer but that never really happened does that mean that financially we're now out of the woods well i think what's happening is that people
are still in markets are still awaiting for the outcome this thursday of the holy see of the board that deals with policy in the european central bank and there's also the decision of the german court about the. realty mechanism so i think. it's too early to say if we are out of the woods i think we are a long way ahead to be out of the woods if we ever are. but i think there today you know it's too early do you feel then that the euro as a single currency is still under threat yes for me. and the threat what will come out of this meetings that i have mentioned is probably. a way to sort out the most immediate problem which is the fact that italy and spain are
having to buy real it's really high interest rates. but the essence is that the economy is not growing the essence is that unemployment is currently part of this bailout is going to. banks that are in very bad check namely inspecting now in my view those banks should be closed those players. odds are a waste of money let's take some of those issues separately that you mentioned that a german court is going to decide on the legality of the fiscal pact for germany what will the court's decision be in your view i think the germans will be sort of forced to agree to this not not the pact in itself but the fund their stability fund which is going to bail out all the member states that are in trouble
and i think they're going to agree now the issue with these funds is that it has very important ties to austerity measures and then you know it comes to its left to the interpretation of the different member states what they interpreted as austerity measures but at the end of the day austerity become a dirty word particularly in say ireland and greece and bailouts amongst the people of germany are deeply unpopular and yes they are you know all around me an article in the wall street journal a couple of days ago and he was showing arland precisely as an example of how they're coming out of the process well i told him yesterday have you spoken to the irish people that's the issue you know they speak. with the prime ministers and the governmental officials but the people who are suffering the austerity measures are the people in the street and nobody's talking to those
people i have spoken to irish people and they are very uncomfortable with the measures how likely do you think it is that the european central bank will ride once again to the rescue and how long are they going to be able to keep on doing that for raggy sort of hinted i would say is to the fact that he would. find it legal according to the treaties for the european central bank to buy bonds from the government on the secondary market so this would sort of give some air to the member states in that they would be able to get financing had long cost but on the other side this means printing money so the feeling that is that they could buy these sovereign bonds but if it does that it will impose tougher conditions i.e. austerity on the countries and the countries don't want to agree to that yet but it
seems that if the e.c.b. buys the bonds the tie to the sterett in measures is more vague than it is if actually the funds stability fund is used to. finance this member states in trouble i mean this all these mechanisms are fairly new and i think the legality of this legal framework has not been well thought i mean it seems from what you're saying that everyone is is in the dark corner is that there are these quite complicated measures going on which are perceived differently by different countries depending on their economic position in spain for example they are trying to force the prime minister to actually ask for the bailout now there's a total confusion because before the summer supposedly spain go to a bailout for its banks and now it seems it's going to ask for another bailout to
save its own economy. it's not clear if the bailout of the banks was subject with your stereotype not as a memorandum of understanding still to be signed. and there's a complete confusion but at the end of the this is again. money that's going to have to be printed that it's not. this money doesn't actually exist this doesn't sound like an economic bloc that's working its way out of a crisis in a coherent fashion no well for me it's no surprise you know i was in the commission and actually the people in the commission live in the rivalry tower they don't actually understand what the issue is with the economy in the european union and we are where we are because of the lack of discipline of the member states but very much also because of the lack of control of the european commission on the policy that they have put out this crisis is to a certain extent or to
a large extent the result of the good or bad policies that they put in place but they don't assume any responsibility angle or merkel the german chancellor has just come back from a trip to china where she tried to restore the confidence of chinese investors in europe how attractive do you think european assets are at the moment to nations like the chinese the european union the european parliament even have legislated in a way that they have opened our markets totally to the chinese and other. markets are other investors and. right now you know they have an easy ride really but this is this is a problem for us because our industry has ceased to grow because you know these people are invading our markets so china for me not the solution the solution
for us in europe is enhanced in our industry growing our industries and people getting people employed so that's the price that european countries might pay for chinese investment basically yes i mean if i had to decide i wouldn't be very happy about chinese investment obviously in terms of prices. you know you have to do the best you can but in china for us. does not represent a big opportunity i think we represent more an opportunity for them than they do for us. in other countries bulk area has just frozen its plans to join the euro zone it does remain a member of the e.u. what advantages do you think bulgaria gets by being a part of the european union but not a part of the euro zone well it gets the funding you know the issue about the
structural funding because all this new comers into the european union are now getting the big bark of the funding whereas the old ones like greece and spain and italy and france and the u.k. obviously are getting less so i think the bulgarians have been very clever for i mean they. are getting out of the euro problem but still they remain. big important proceed paeans of structure of funding. of all the issues that we've talked about now that the european union has gone sort of back to school what will you be focusing on what's your major concern. well obviously major concern. for. economic point of view what are they proposing to create employment and i haven't heard good ideas in this regard. from a budget point of view you know i think the budget trued the european union budget
should be reduced you know we have invested more than one hundred and fifty billion in the last year and in the decades an average of one hundred thirty and what have we got you know we got the crisis the ratings agency moody's has revised its outlook for the european union's debt rating to negative what does that mean for investors in european countries and also in the euro well it's bad news obviously for european countries for the eurozone as a whole i mean credit rating agencies are part of the problem or part of the solution because obviously they take certain parameters and the are of course in a way with the rating for seeing you know the interest rates go up. so this is a problem that i really don't know how it's going to be sought the european union wants to have centralized but everything they centralized doesn't work afterwards.
i think it's really by a new standard showing that for me the euro has a short life it. thank you very much thank you. i had a family i lived in a failing nice community wasn't which was an upscale it was just like you know archie bunker society ok then they started showing up here what happened was my company decided i could get cheap labor and they got rid of us. these are long runs in the eaglets line legally we have to get up every morning we have to go to work and you know we have to pay our bills only have to kill a man and that's just the american dream and if you want the american dream you
have to go by the last i figure is here's one of the major trails into the united states and. i've watched them they run run down my property and about this noise. was a little chap mean that cockroaches from coming over the wire is protecting the country and the kind of guy who doesn't mindedness pay and sturdy so i come out here you know we're all immigrants as well that we all hear something or else. they were young and high flying. their careers were on takeoff. that flight for them was one of many. and the last one. leaving the ice on our team.
