Cuba for UN at Helm of Economic Fix
The XI International Meeting of Economists on Globalization and Development Problems organizing committee Chair Roberto Verrier affirmed that the UN is the ideal scenario for democratic debates to avoid unilateral measures, faced with the current economic crisis.

Any analysis of the subject requires a widespread participation of the international community, particularly developing countries with the right to submit their points of view and perspectives and take part in the solutions, he insisted.

It would be a serious mistake to return to the practice of designing policies behind the backs of the majorities in the world and the UN, and is the reason why Cuba opened the possibility for all nations to meet again in Havana for a healthy and necessary confrontation of ideas, Verrier explained.

He recalled that in January of 1999, Cuban leader Fidel Castro predicted that nature and the human species had little time left to survive the urgent changes caused by the neoliberal globalization that has cost so much.

Dominican Republic's President Leonel Fernandez and Cuban First Vicepresident Jose Ramon Machado Ventura, as well as three Nobel laureates of economy, and international and regional economic institutions will also participate in the summit.
