'US losing power in Latin America'


JNN 02 Jan 2011 : An analyst says US aggressive stance against Latin American and Caribbean countries shows Washington’s anger over its diminishing influence in the region.

The region “is no longer directly under the thumb of the US corporate power and US military power,” Co-Director of International Action Center Sara Flounders said.

“That certainly is infuriating US policy makers, the Pentagon, and the corporations that are used to treating the economies of Latin America as extensions; as sources of cheap raw material and cheap labor,” she told Press TV.

Flounders specifically referred to the US attempts to rig Venezuela-Colombia relations as an evident example of Washington’s agenda for destabilizing the region.

“Any reconciliation or improvement in relations between Colombia and Venezuela would be to US detriment, and certainly to the detriment of the US military presence in Colombia,” she added.

Flounders argued that the US has, for many years, used fighting drugs as an excuse for its military presence in Colombia.

However, its main aim is “stopping a popular movement in Colombia from becoming a force such as have happened throughout Latin America, where democratic and popular forces have really swept elections and made enormous transformations and changes,” she said

Days of 'Dollar's dominance are counted now


 

JNN 23 Dec 2010 : Business analysts indicate that the US dollar’s status as the world’s reserve currency and the standard currency could be soon coming to an end.

This comes days after China and Russia decided to renounce the US dollar and resort to using their own currencies for bilateral trade.

“About trade settlement, we have decided to use our own currencies,” China Daily quoted Russian Premier Vladimir Putin as saying in a joint news conference with his Chinese counterpart Wen Jiabao in St. Petersburg on Tuesday.

The developments come as the two countries are accustomed to using the dollar and other Western currencies for bilateral trade. But the yuan has now started trading against the Russian ruble in the Chinese interbank market.

China has also announced it will continue to allow more currencies to trade in the domestic interbank foreign-exchange market in the coming weeks.

In addition, BusinessWeek has said in a recent report that Moscow and Beijing have also called for the dollar’s role in the financial system to be diluted.

The decision comes days after China blasted a US decision to inject hundreds of billions of dollars into the US banking system.

Chinese Vice Finance Minister Zhu Guangyao said Washington was ignoring its responsibility to support emerging economies.

“The US has not fully taken into consideration the shock of excessive capital flows to the financial stability of emerging markets,” Zhu told reporters in Beijing in early November.

The US Federal Reserve has announced plans to pump USD 600 billion into its economy by the end of June 2011.

This is while China has continued to resist pressures from the US to raise the value of its yuan currency against the US dollar. Senior officials in Beijing say China will firmly stick to its own path for reforming the yuan.

The currency debate has intensified tension between the US and China. Washington says China holds the yuan low so that Chinese goods can enjoy an artificial competitive edge.

Relations between Beijing and Washington have been deteriorating over a number of issues, including the Pentagon arms sales to Taiwan.

'China to become world's 1st innovator'


JNN 06 Dec 2010 : A recent survey shows that Chinese people have a strong sense of optimism and that the country will overtake the US and Japan in innovations by the year 2020.

The poll, conducted by drugmaker AstraZeneca across Britain, the US, Sweden, Japan, India and China, found that the Chinese and the Indians had a growing sense of optimism while people of the developed Western countries showed relative pessimism.
More than half of the participants in China and India said their countries would be the world’s most innovative by 2020, while only one in 20 Britons believed the UK capable of such an achievement.
Asians voted for communications and computing to trigger the most number of innovations, while American and European respondents gave the credit to the invention of vaccines and antibiotics.
China is currently the world’s second-largest economy and biggest manufacturer, Reuters reported.
Based the poll’s results, the United States ranks the world’s most innovative country followed by Japan and China.
Some 27 percent of the 6,000 participants said China will be the number one country in innovations in the next ten years, followed by India with 17 percent, the United States 14 percent and Japan 12 percent.
Experts say China’s success has nothing to do with the United States having less interest in science and technology, but is due to China and India’s doing more.
A report released last month by Thomson Reuters said Europe and Asia were catching up with the US in dominating the world of scientific research.
The study showed that China was now the second-largest producer of scientific papers after the US with nearly 11 percent of the world’s total.
