World bank says world “one shock away from a full-blown crisis.”

April 17, 2011WASHINGTON, DC – The president of the World Bank has warned that the world is “one shock away from a full-blown crisis.” Robert Zoellick cited rising food prices as the main threat to poor nations who risk “losing a generation.” He was speaking in Washington at the end of the spring meetings of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund. Meanwhile, G20 finance chiefs, who also met in Washington, pledged financial support to help new governments in the Middle East and North Africa. Mr Zoellick said such support was vital. “The crisis in the Middle East and North Africa underscores how we need to put the conclusions from our latest world development report into practice. The report highlighted the importance of citizen security, justice and jobs,” he said. He also called for the World Bank to act quickly to support reforms in the region. “Waiting for the situation to stabilize will mean lost opportunities. In revolutionary moments the status quo is not a winning hand. “It’s probably too much to say that it’s a jobless recovery, but it’s certainly a recovery with not enough jobs,” he said. “Especially because of youth unemployment… there is now a risk that this will be turned into a life sentence and that there is a possibility of a lost generation,” he said. –BBC

    The sad thing is that in the 80s, gen X was considered a lost generation because of the same reasons. These people are so out of touch with the rest of the planet…. I hope they realize that in the grand scheme of things, being a banker isn’t going to put food on the table after it all falls apart.

    Oh Boy…here we go my friends. This may be the ‘trigger’ for the sheep..when the “bank” talks ‘they’ seem to listen.

    oh wait…politics still headlining..then the ‘royal’ wedding, may have a little time yet 🙂

    **royal much money spent on that, when their people are starving**..sick

    The sheeple have spoken and they will have nothing of all this worry and despair nonsense. They want a royal wedding, at least they are told from the news cycle, and pomp and cicumstance fanfare they shall have.

    Our conventional response to all media, namely that it is how they are used that counts, is the numb stance of the technological idiot. For the ‘content’ of a medium is like the juicy piece of meat carried by the burglar to distract the watchdog of the mind.” -Marshall McLuhan

    Just watching the food prices rise every day here at the local grocery store is scary enough but I think few people realize the larger implications of these food shortages. While most things may be more expensive here in the US, for now they is still plenty. I shutter to think what will happen, when due to all these droughts and natural disasters, that is no longer the case.

    As soon as global hysteric “warming”, “change”, “disruption”, whatever you want to call it started, the powers that be decided to start converting food into fuel. AGW is a scam…….the globe has historically extreme changing climate environments. We are in some of that change now but when the moonbats came up with this “food for fuel” scheme, they in effect sentenced the third world nations’ people to die and us to out of control food prices. Until common sense is applied to all of our well being, the pattern will remain unabated. Even one of the AGW proponents admitted recently that if we stopped all man made co2 releases today…..none……..notta…..that it would take 1000 years before the results would be reflected in our climate and even then they would be minimal. IMO use food to eat….and oil, natural gas and others for fuel.


  6. goodbyemilkyway says:

    They will have food, they will have fuel..we will not. Spirit is greater than materialistic, at least some of us will have that.. There is no shortage of food, oil…it’s just we are not getting it. Profit is the bottom line, greed, at the cost of life.



  7. Eric Benson says:

    Too bad when we as a country or on our own give, to the poor countrys, the money is so misused. Has anyone anywhere found the leader of any poor starving country going hungry, or even “just getting by”?


  8. Robert Nelson says:

    Thanks for the article. I hope the report is told to all. Thanks
