British leader issues call at UN for new financial order to end market turmoil

UN News Center | Sep 26, 2008

26 September 2008 – The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom today called for a new global financial system to bring an end to the current economic turmoil, laying out five principles on which the order should be based as he addressed the General Assembly’s annual high-level debate.

Gordon Brown’s First New World Order Speech

“This has been an era of global prosperity. It has been an era also of global turbulence,” Gordon Brown said at United Nations Headquarters in New York.

To bring an end to the culture of irresponsibility, “we must now build a new global financial order founded on transparency, not opacity; rewarding success, not excess; responsibility, not impunity; and which is global, not national.”

He proposed five key principles for all nations to abide by: transparency and improved accounting standards; sound banking practices and more effective regulation; increased responsibility to be taken by senior management; integrity; and oversight of global capital flows.

Mr. Brown also urged urgent action to tackle what he called the “global scramble for resources” by addressing the problem of high commodity prices and “taking tough decisions on energy security and climate change.” To this end, he said he will host a global energy summit in London to push for agreement on key issues later this year.

Cooperation among nations is more important than ever, he said, as it is the only vehicle through which “we can make the most of the world’s scarce resources and harness the power of our ever great interdependence for our common good.”

Resorting to isolationism and protectionism is not the solution to the crisis holding the world in its clutches, the Prime Minister said. “It is only by maintaining our open, flexible and dynamic economies that we can best secure people’s jobs, homes and standards of living in a global age.”

  1. I’ve got a new direction for you; a new world order: how about politicians DON’T act now to sort this out. How about they just wait until it runs its course before they plough in there demanding that we all take responsibility for this by paying more of our money to sort it out. How about waiting until we have sense of perspective before formulating a plan of action to ameliorate the worst effects of a financial down-turn?

    Because they’d have you believe that by acting now to plump up the cushions of the mega-rich corporations and wheeler-dealers that this will somehow prevent this occurring again. Short memories all of them. And inflated ideas of the level of control they have over these systems. I would suggest we don’t pander to their requests for action.

    Perspective and analysis is what is required, not immediate plans for radical change. Otherwise it just looks like they had it all planned out, and had the solution waiting ready to put in place at the right moment……surely not?

  8. Get ready, Dear People:
    With the collapse of the U.S. economy, the microchip will be “revealed” to be the answer to all our troubles.
    Once we are all implanted, the media will tell us, crime, greed, corruption, and fear will be replaced with tranquility.
    If it was not a mortal sin, I would kill myself now.
    Do not let yourself be taken on a U.N. Railroad car, or receive any injection.

  11. I agree with comments. If anyone has any doubts that we are headed towards a world socialist governemt please read my article “Barreling Towards Babylon.” I outlined the historical facts. The noose has been quietly laid around the neck of free market capitalism. When it is rendered taught, the stool will be kicked out. Be prepared for the worst case banking scenario.
