Russia, China Blame Woes on Capitalism
Speeches Criticize Inappropriate Policies, Focus on Dollar's Role; Yet Putin Sends Obama Conciliatory Signal
The premiers of Russia and China slammed the U.S. economic system in speeches Wednesday, holding it responsible for the global economic crisis.
Vladimir Putin’s speech at the opening ceremony - Snip
In the last few months, virtually every speech on this subject started with criticism of the United States. But I will do nothing of the kind.
I just want to remind you that, just a year ago, American delegates speaking from this rostrum emphasised the US economy’s fundamental stability and its cloudless prospects. Today, investment banks, the pride of Wall Street, have virtually ceased to exist. In just 12 months, they have posted losses exceeding the profits they made in the last 25 years. This example alone reflects the real situation better than any criticism.

We desperately need to grow our economy Bill. As a result of short-sighted energy policies, we can't grow GDP without an equal increase in oil consumption. As president you were anti-drilling...you strongly supported the environment...Kudos!...but also you initiated a plan to renovate thousands of aging nuclear warheads in clear violation of the START II arms reduction treaty....
but failed to renovate our dying nuclear energy industry?
