9:05 pm
a bailout but critics believe this is just the beginning of the end where european monetary union. and it is invalid. and we had a room full of six hundred fifty people listening to around about fifteen speakers ranging from economists to some of the foremost currency experts in germany and also former european central bankers and they've been saying essentially that maybe not today maybe not tomorrow but sometime in the not too distant future the euro is going to collapse and they've been arguing that it's a fundamentally flawed concept in the first place that ever since its introduction it's been in inherently a wrong thing to do also officially bringing together sixteen economies nearly seventeen when joins in january that inherently have nothing in common there's going to be. what they're calling an action plan is going to be four points and one of them is going to encourage people to call for a referendum in germany on the euro asking people whether they really want to or is
9:06 pm
still being forced and and the aim of these people through that referendum will be to bring the deutschmark back to germany now i am joined very kindly by michael moore oss who is a stock market guru and he's also the editor in chief of and you news michael thanks very much for talking to us now tell me will you be backing this referendum that's being proposed if there's a referendum of course but on the other hand have big doubts that this referendum take place because all those questions are. politically incorrect we don't have really support from the from the masses of these this scene is. people just don't talk about it it isn't really a scandal in my opinion from russian t.v. here and none of the western media is for example covering this event to. be christian if such a poll could be. in the future because the political story of two high tech people
9:07 pm
. for example. currency which is a basic democratic seen in my opinion we were not asked if you want to have it also many other people of the european community were not and if you would ask them they would say no we don't like it for example we had a recent poll here in germany fifty percent of all germans didn't want the euro still don't want it at the moment and even sixty percent of the french people don't like it so i ask myself why do we have it it's only a thing of a political bureaucracies in brussels to behave more or less like the taters in my opinion you know we didn't elect them but they turned us what to do in fact that's one of the things that you and other people in the room is saying is that the euro is a tool for undermining democracy of course it's to do so very much it is the basic
9:08 pm
tool for brussels in order to dictate into the government how much is this conversation about guessing which of the euro pie in the sky if you like do you think it would be a hugely destabilizing thing now that the euro is in place to dismantle leary's and in this way some economists say that it will be almost the same as the effect that the collapse of lehman brothers hatched this is of course the other side of the calling the longer we have it the more difficult it will be to get rid of it and of course there will be thousands and millions of problems but it doesn't mean that we didn't have to start no because the longer we wait the more problems we have we will get and the higher we will fall down i mean there's a saying in germany if you are moving towards the wrong direction there is no sense in excel or to the extent of our diversity you know that is it eve did even makes it was hard for us all at the end. and that was not our list michael moore's talking to ask his own lawyer and it so stay tuned for our interview at
9:09 pm
a later in the program with professor at wilhelm had a call one of the currency experts here filed a lawsuit in the german constitutional court against the greek bailout. well the leaders meeting at the u.n. general assembly in new york have been continuing pressure on iran to restart talks over its nuclear program that the country says it's open to dialogue that's not enough for the international community russia's foreign minister sergei lavrov says iran will continue to challenge international and if you are the security council demands for the long haul as long as possible and he gave his tail with a russian have. a question is going to go through russia simply documented in the presidential decree what is required from russia and all the other states in relation to iran after the adoption of the un security council's new resolutions russia refused to deliver the s three hundred surface to air missile systems to iran in support of this resolution and russia remains opposed to any unilateral sanctions against iran resolutions adopted by the u.n.

security council are binding but they need to be turned into national laws because they are not direct application documents within countries legislation to further measures regarding tehran were discussed at this week's ministerial meeting in new york of the un security council's five permanent members plus germany on the iranian nuclear problem we in china brought this issue up once again which if we work jointly and if our western partners continue to say that it's necessary to maintain a consolidated position on iran we need to decide whether we can have a consolidated position on all issues or if the security council should be used to achieve the maximum possible collective results but if it cannot be achieved individual states will do it beyond the agreements reached within the security council this is at least ethically and morally wrong in terms of collective work even though the iranians realize very well the need to restart talks over the new. the program they will challenge the demands of the u.n. security council for as long as possible iran is an ancient country with centuries
9:11 pm
of history iranian diplomats are very intelligent people it turns out that every now diplomats are liable to holding a very drawn out arguing to the bitter end and forcing partners to work to their maximum maybe to the utterly impossible in order to learn how a partner will be ready to react of course we face further problems in the context of iran's nuclear dossier in this aspect the iranian partners could be more constructive and react to the i.a.e.a. claims more cooperatively and must comply with all that we agreed the year ago in geneva the group of six hundred reigning representatives are agreeing on three could be considered a breakthrough and have a positive impact even today in order to prevent the adoption of a new u.n. security council resolution we agreed then that it would take a few days to then discuss concrete dates for talks on iran's nuclear reactor problem twelve months on activity has finally started in order to convene any meeting on the issue iranian friends could be slightly more proactive on this i
9:12 pm
hope the meeting of the foreign ministers of the group of six in new york will make a clear statement and confirm our readiness to resume talks i hope that our meeting will have an impact and that it will begin in the immediate future. so the foreign minister's comments follow the un jr assembly over the ukrainian president's speech . that he believes the u.s. government was behind the nine eleven attacks western nations led by the us walked out with president obama calling they were most hateful and offensive the iranian leader also said however that tehran is prepared to discuss if the rain which happens as early as next month. the slump in the american economy has brought a brain drain in reverse of people who came to the country hoping for a better life and highly qualified immigrants of indian origin have started returning to their homeland prep shrader has been in. why. ten years ago k.j. saying would have never imagined that he'd be back in india going overseas for

a tranquil gated community tucked in the corner of india's silicon valley many immigrants who have left the united states and come back to india have settled in gated communities like this one the residents here say that almost seventy percent of the people who live here came from abroad but one thing they can all agree on is that you definitely get more bang for your buck here in india in seems gated community residents can enjoy the olympic sized pool state of the art tennis courts and a playground where there are just as many maids as children to supervise the kids while their parents exercise it's a far cry from the lives these immigrants were leading in america on a day to day basis a lot of the things get taken care of the comes into the sweepings well being called into place today and somebody comes into the clothes and while most site india is growing. economy as a reason for moving back they won't discount the quality of life as a perk to just ask pooja bhatt acharya she worked as an i.t.

professional in the u.s. in a double income house but now says her life is better than avar as an indian homemaker definitely. up to the standard of living in the sense that you have a household. affordability is much better. it's good the going is good here it's comfortable it's your own country that tops it all and while the crew at the silver jasmine are living it up they can't help but wonder if their presence in the united states is missed the united states has enough to support it so. while many americans may view immigrants as taking jobs the reality is that indian and chinese immigrants created fifteen percent of the jobs in places of power like silicon valley but now that entrepreneurial spirit is being brought back to the place they started from the economy is definitely. far more opportunities far more it is that

and coming up in a moment out into the with professor held her uncle one of the current sax players who filed a lawsuit in the german constitutional court against the greek bailout and he told us he's a lawyer and then to why he believes helping greece in this way from to mentally breach is the basis of european monitoring in.
9:23 pm
i'm in berlin with professor vilhelm. currency experts who filed a suit with the constitutional court in germany against the greek bailout. very much for talking to r.t. now tell me about the complaint that the court. is illegal because. it will be in community beitar is complete the. proper very simple reason a country which can. be bailed out not for financial monetary. so all know is a precondition for your having. to fear so you'll never be in future. because.
9:24 pm
spain. maybe thirty and. so there's a real fear and it's growing in your. very very weak currency inflated and this is a reason. to stop that this is a complicated. treaty must be fulfilled and not broken so you maintain that under the terms of that treaty a bailout is actually illegal what outcome do you hope for if secord is sharing or hue. in german participation on suits or action. be stopped and i think we are coming back to. stability probably the richest of freighting over he may be greek is forced to opt out and why not because the country is not very happy to see your country receive the economy cannot share monetary crap having hard towards for the ability and hard currency and what effect
9:25 pm
do you foresee for the rest of the year if countries like greece and spain and possibly italy were forced to pull out. too soon or possibly one that is smaller but harder monetary union not sixteen or seventeen members but only with ten or eight but. follows that all of this would be an option the whole experiment of union in my view would force not the union but concubinage sixteen countries shared one currency which is a nonsense political as well as in economic terms so if this experiment bill be stopped there would go to come back to national currency so germany to its advantage mark and why not the choice mark there wasn't
9:26 pm
a particularly strong currency was it in the in the ten or twenty years leading up to the year how do you think they would have performed during the financial crisis i think in case our countries are coming back to national currency and germany smart send they would have a clear cut split in your between countries depreciating. appreciating and germany by seeing given his high surpluses and current account. appreciating that currency is not the damage but it is a real want to travel the country you get more real goods for your money so we would have higher welfare lower interest rate and better performance in the whole economy which we had before so your point if the euro did collapse in the year is broke apart surely there would be a period of huge instability in countries like germany and throughout the year i say. it's
9:27 pm
a moment all countries have problems. because the euro give him credit which is not worthwhile for source countries in a year or so or all accomplish even big deficit countries countries with high inflation rate capability to get credit this is a reason to ours as ours are all over it so after such an experiment every country becomes very cool too. so you can run the viewers are currently getting back to protect the interest of important for profit and. crucially. really diminish maybe exports europe but gain more prosperity in the home market so each country of see you when you build five against this national crisis for its national means and overcomes a crisis so it's a much better concept. to master financial and economic crisis
9:28 pm
some economists say that europe will emerge from this crisis in better shape than it ever was before what do you say to that it's a moment your whole is subsidized currency so it is a weak currency but it is subsidized by a high inflationary intervention of the european central bank which is the beginning of inflation period for you and inflation for your means weak if not junk the currency which is intolerable so since six thousand years of monetary story all countries running and deficits like our. source. via our monetary revalidation and evaluations are from an exchange rate. in order to overcome a crisis and we need to see it's from an optimistic after opting out of the deficit
9:29 pm
countries form so you when you're not breaking down as you are we will get after a short period of problems a very long time stability for your professor thank you very much pleasure. to go as you hear. the future covered. more news today. and these are the images the world has been seeing from the streets of canada. showing up for a shelter all day.
