The forecast for world output is unchanged, at 4.4 per cent growth.While the British economy will take a hit from the planned fiscal consolidation, the IMF described the cuts as “necessary”, and criticised other countries for failing to rein in their public finances.“The pace of fiscal consolidation in 2011 will be far below earlier estimates,” the report said.In October last year the IMF expected average structural deficit reductions of one per cent of GDP, yet now expects just 0.25 per cent of GDP in deficit cuts.The structural deficit in the US, which is now projected to widen in 2011, is largely to blame, the report said.“Its economy appears sufficiently strong to withstand modest consolidation,” the IMF said, arguing that the impact of the stimulus package is “likely to be low relative to its cost”.

Canónigo Gregory Straub, secretario de la Convención General y director ejecutivo de la Iglesia, dijo que hasta donde sabía ésta era la primera vez que un obispo primado había propuesto un presupuesto después de que el Consejo Ejecutivo hubiera enviado su anteproyecto al Comité Permanente Conjunto sobre Programa, Presupuesto y Finanzas (PB&F, por su sigla en inglés).“No sabía que la obispa Katharine estuviese preparando su propio presupuesto”, dijo Bonnie Anderson, presidenta de la Cámara de Diputados en un mensaje por correo electrónico el 21 de junio.Anderson asistía esa tarde a una partida de béisbol en el estadio de los Tigres de Detroit y dijo que “estudiaría lo que ella [Jefferts Schori] ha sacado cuando llegue a casa”.Steve Lane, obispo de la Diócesis de Maine y quien preside el PB&F, dijo a ENS, en una entrevista telefónica, que acogía con beneplácito la propuesta de Jefferts Schori.“Creo que los presupuestos son documentos del liderazgo, y yo había estado esperando que la obispa primada como nuestra líder hiciera una declaración sobre las prioridades y la estrategia del presupuesto”, agregó. “Me siento muy complacido de ver que ella ha hecho eso. Creo que es una importante contribución a la Iglesia”.Si bien su decisión de proponer un presupuesto alternativo podría parecer “inusual”, dijo Lane, “no veo que la obispa primada haya incurrido en la violación de ningún canon o de cualquier otra cosa al hacer su propia declaración de fines y propósitos”.Lane dijo que el PB&F hará “lo ajustes pertinentes” al anteproyecto del presupuesto del Consejo basándose en todas las contribuciones que haya recibido y lo que oirá en la Convención General. Él llamó a la propuesta de Jefferts Schori “datos importantes” que establecen algunas claras prioridades y dijo que “[el Comité] de Programa, Presupuesto y Finanzas tendrá que considerar eso junto con el resto”.Él y otros miembros del comité están conscientes de “montones de propuestas en la blogosfera, algunas de las cuales son bastante específicas” y han estado entrevistando a miembros del personal del centro denominacional y a otros líderes de la Iglesia “a fin de estar tan preparados como sea posible cuando nos reunamos” en Indianápolis el 4 de julio.Un comienzo a partir de ceroJefferts Schori dijo que su propuesta comenzaba como un presupuesto de base cero, para permitir un proceso de mayor fundamentación teológica y más estratégico”, es decir, “espiritualmente enriquecedor en lugar de agotador” y a tono con un documento que mira hacia delante.Ella también hizo notar que la propuesta es más detallada en las áreas de misión y administración porque fueron esas áreas las que ella había supervisado. [El documento] sugiere una reducción global de un cinco por ciento en costos de gobierno y prevé asignar esos costos “colaborativamente, en consulta con otros líderes electos, entre ellos la presidente de la Cámara de Diputados, el encargado ejecutivo de la Convención General y el Consejo Ejecutivo”.La propuesta se basa en pedirle a las diócesis y misiones regionales de la Iglesia que contribuyan con el 19 por ciento de su ingreso anual de los dos años anteriores (menos $120.000) durante cada año del trienio. Ese porcentaje es el mismo de la contribución de 2012 luego de haber decrecido del 21 por ciento en 2010 y del 20 por ciento en 2011.El Consejo elaboró su versión final del presupuesto 2013-2015 partiendo de la contribución del 19% y bosquejando los gastos a partir de una versión del 15 por ciento. Para ese escenario de gastos, los miembros del Consejo luego jerarquizaron sus prioridades restaurando partes del presupuesto a los niveles del 19 por ciento. Esas prioridades incluyen el invertir en redes de contacto emergentes y en apoyar las que ya existen, potenciando el ministerio y las comunicaciones locales.En conformidad con la propuesta de la obispa primada se reducirían 12,75 puestos del personal de la Sociedad Misionera Nacional y Extranjera, aunque cinco de esas plazas se encuentran actualmente vacantes.Jefferts Schori centró su propuesta presupuestaria en torno a las Cinco Marcas Anglicanas de la Misión, que la Convención General refrendó en 2009 (a través de la Resolución D027) y dijo que el presupuesto de la Iglesia para el [trienio] 2013-2015 debía centrarse en las Marcas como “prioridades estratégicas”.Su mensaje resalta seis iniciativas que se concentran en las Cinco Marcas y ascienden a $8 millones.Un cambio en la organización presupuestariaLa obispa primada también afincó su propuesta en el continuo llamado de ella y otros a reestructurar y reformar la Iglesia. “Como en todas las épocas, nuestra Iglesia está necesitada de reforma, a fin de emprender la misión que Dios nos ha puesto por delante”, dijo Jefferts Schori. “Esta propuesta presupuestaria aspira a ser el comienzo de ese empeño reformador”.El presupuesto está organizado con una “prioridad espiritual”, según la cual lo primero es la misión, seguida por el gobierno y la administración, afirmó, en que el segundo y la tercera están “al servicio” de la primera.La obispa primada también señaló que su propuesta representa un cambio del tradicional modelo presupuestario canónico (Canon I.4.6(b) y (c)) de listar los gastos como canónicos, corporativos y de programa. Ese modelo “ya no sirve idóneamente a la Iglesia para responder a un mundo que está mucho más necesitado de nuestro compañerismo”.Cada partida de la propuesta está concebida como perteneciente a una de esas tres áreas “a fin de satisfacer los Cánones”, dijo Jefferts Schori “pero las categorías canónicas existentes no parecen estratégicamente útiles y la propuesta presupuestaria no está organizada en consecuencia”.Jefferts Schori expresó que esta propuesta era necesaria porque si bien el Consejo Ejecutivo fue “fiel” en este empeño de preparar y aprobar un anteproyecto de presupuesto de una manera diferente de las convenciones anteriores, “no surgió una estrategia coherente” de esos esfuerzos.Jefferts Schori citó un fragmento del Canon I.2.4(a)(1) que la autorizaba a hacer la propuesta. El segmento dice que compete al[a la] Obispo[a] Primado[a] “asumir el liderazgo necesario para iniciar y desarrollar la política y la estrategia en la Iglesia”.Tradicionalmente, la obispa primada, con la ayuda de algunos miembros del personal del centro denominacional, le presenta al Consejo Ejecutivo un borrador del presupuesto en los meses que anteceden a la Convención General. El Consejo luego puede alterar esa propuesta.Las normas parlamentarias conjuntas de la Convención General (in II.10 10 (a)) requieren que el Consejo le remita al Comité de Programa, Presupuesto y Finanzas un borrador del presupuesto no menos de cuatro meses antes del comienzo de la Convención. Ni al Consejo ni al PB&F se les permite cambiar el documento del presupuesto entre el momento en que el Consejo se lo envía al PB&F y el comienzo de la Convención General. Una vez que la Convención comienza le corresponde al PB&F redactar un presupuesto para someterlo a la aprobación de la Convención.Sin embargo, se han suscitado interrogantes respecto a ciertas frustraciones con el proceso presupuestario y los documentos que ha producido. Al final de su reunión de abril en Salt Lake City, el Consejo Ejecutivo emitió un memorándum en el que decía que el anteproyecto de presupuesto que se le había dado a conocer a la Iglesia “no es exactamente” el que se había aprobado.El 1 de junio, Jefferts Schori, el jefe de operaciones [de la Iglesia], el obispo Stacy Souls, y el tesorero ante la Convención General, Kurt Barnes, dieron a conocer una versión anotada del borrador del presupuesto del Consejo.Programa, Presupuesto y Finanzas comenzó a estudiar el anteproyecto 2013-2015 a principios de febrero. En la Convención General tendrán lugar tres audiencias [sobre este asunto]:El 4 de julio a las 12:30 P.M. sobre el marco del presupuesto y el proceso presupuestario.El 6 de julio a las 7:30 P.M. sobre financiación.El 7 de julio a las 7:30 P.M. sobre gastos.El PB&F presentará su propuesta presupuestaria a una sesión conjunta de la Cámara de Diputados y la Cámara de Obispos el 10 de julio a las 2:15 P.M. Se espera una votación final sobre el presupuesto el 12 de julio, el último día de la Convención.“Programa, Presupuesto y Finanzas enfrenta una tarea de enormes proporciones” dijo Lane, advirtiendo que el trabajo de ese comité debe estar listo para el 9 de julio a fin de que el presupuesto se presente al día siguiente.Lane prometió que “presentaremos a la Convención General un presupuesto tan claro como podamos arreglárnosla para aunar esfuerzos en el tiempo que tenemos”.— La Rda.

Patching up capitalism during COVID

first_imgOn Jan. 21, 2020, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed the first recognized case of COVID-19 in the U.S.One year later, over 400,000 people in the country are dead from the virus — the equivalent of wiping out the entire population of Cleveland, Ohio, or Tampa, Fla. Out of the estimated 2 million people worldwide who have died due to COVID-19, one-fifth have been within the U.S. alone!  Workers World has written on how countries with centralized planning on a socialist model — like Cuba or China — have dramatically lowered virus death and infection rates. (“Why socialist countries take lead in fighting COVID-19,” May 21, 2020)But here in the U.S., Republican President Trump — aided and abetted by other far-right bigots — has spread deadly lies about the virus, sabotaging the CDC’s scientific and public health work. While he boasted that Operation Warp Speed got vaccines developed, Big Pharma fattened on related government grants and was protected by contract “no liability” clauses in the event their vaccines caused harm.Now the vaccine distribution plan is stumbling, with insufficient supplies and no centralized guidance. Federal authorities simply handed off distribution to the states. But local public health systems are underfunded — if not in shambles — from years of building prisons and arming the police as budget priorities.And in many states, those in majority control of state governments are actively hostile to funding public health, the Obamacare health plan and expansion of Medicaid.Meanwhile, people are suffering and dying — with the most casualties suffered by poor people and those working in low-paying jobs, people with disabilities, Black, Indigenous and Latinx people, those undocumented and incarcerated, older people — and anyone with limited access to health care, like many LGBTQ2S+ people.And what have the millionaires of Congress been doing about the crisis? Yes, millionaires — in 2020, over half the members of the U.S. Congress were millionaires, with the richest almost evenly divided between Democrats and Republicans. (, April 23, 2020)So far Congress has managed to pass only two relief bills to give minimal pandemic assistance to poor and oppressed people. The provisions of the first bill — the CARES Act — actually expired at one point, leaving workers with no buffer from unemployment, hunger and home evictions because of political jockeying within Congress.Biden’s patch of a planNow incoming Democratic President Joe Biden is proposing a $1.9 trillion bill to provide COVID relief and jump-start the economy. The Jan. 6 armed attack on the Capitol building — to prevent his certification as winner of the presidential election — shows the rabid degree of white-supremacist, neofascist resistance to anyone taking over the government who says they may use the position to assist working and oppressed people.In his pandemic plan, Biden projects making the vaccine free to everyone, including undocumented workers, as well as establishing community vaccination centers and expanding treatment and research options. The plan’s other relief items include additional one-time direct “stimulus” payments, extension of unemployment benefits and eviction protection, childcare subsidies and mandatory paid sick leave.Seems massive, right?  But it’s a patch on the flat tire of capitalism — stopping a leak in the system, pumping it up — but still failing to address the continuing built-in inequalities and suffering in this brutal way of “doing business.”For instance, the bill calls for a $15 hourly federal minimum wage. Low-wage workers have been fighting for this state-by-state for years — for so long now that $20 an hour is likely needed to make a living wage!And what about the bill’s Obamacare premium subsidies, which would give more low-income or precarious workers — like gig workers — a chance at health insurance? Linda Blumberg, a fellow at the Health Policy Center at the Urban Institute, says of that: “I think with good outreach and enrollment assistance, you could bring a good deal more people in. You’re not going to get to universal coverage.” (NY Times, Jan. 16) But in the middle of a death-dealing pandemic crisis, universal coverage for health care should be the proposal on the table!Instead, Biden’s bill is a proposal that will go to the chopping block of business interests that’s called the U.S. Congress.Who knows which of that bill’s best proposals will survive? And how long its passage will take? And how many people will die waiting for those who guard the coffers of capitalism to turn loose even a little help?The extent of whatever help Biden and the new Congress will offer is unknown. The length of continuation of the pandemic and its effects are unknown.What is clear, as revealed by the COVID crisis, is that the political and economic system of the U.S. is built and maintained on the backs and lives of working and oppressed people.There will continue to be crisis after crisis as long as the U.S. is a “capitalist democracy.” And people will continue to die while this unjust system continues.The challenge for those working toward socialism is to expose the link between the cycle of injustice and capitalism — and to build working-class consciousness and action with workers and oppressed people within the U.S.These are our neighbors, workmates, friends and family who are suffering. We are shoulder-to-shoulder with them in the fight against injustice — and in the advance on the liberation road toward socialism.

The news of his death came as Reporters Without Borders’ Turkey representative, Erol Önderoglu, was on the phone with Firat representative Hediye Özbay. It was preceded by a week of the most violent rioting Turkey has seen in 30 years.“We offer our heartfelt condolences to Kadri Bagdu’s colleagues and family,” said Johann Bihr, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk.“A full and impartial investigation must be carried out in order to quickly identify the gunmen and anyone who gave them their orders. We urge the authorities and all other parties involved to curb the mounting tension and prevent this targeting murder from leading to a new spiral of violence.”The possibly imminent fall of Kobane, Syria’s third largest Kurdish city, has electrified Turkey and is jeopardizing the peace process between President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s government and the PKK armed rebels. Demonstrations by Kurds, Islamists and nationalists in Turkey have led to clashes in which more than 35 people have died since 7 October.Some 20 Kurdish journalists were murdered during the 1990s, at the height of the clashes between the PKK and the Turkish army. Almost all of these murders are still unpunished. The start of peace talks between the government and PKK in March 2013 raised hopes of an end to a conflict that has killed more than 40,000 people since 1984.Reporters Without Borders’ Turkey representative will take part in a news conference being organized by Kurdish media at noon tomorrow outside Özgür Gündem’s office in Istanbul to protest against Bagdu’s murder.(Photo: Evrensel) April 2, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Turkeycenter_img to go further TurkeyEurope – Central Asia Turkey’s never-ending judicial persecution of former newspaper editor News His death follows a week of violent rioting sparked by fighting in a Kurdish city near the Syrian border TurkeyEurope – Central Asia News Help by sharing this information Related documents rsf-_kadri_bagdu_nun_katilleri_bulunmali-2.pdfPDF – 76.27 KB Newslast_img read more
