Yakunin On Eve Of Rhodes Forum: The Agenda Is New Financial System

Oct. 10, 2008 (LPAC) -- Vladimir Yakunin, CEO of the state-owned company Russian Railways and co-founder of the World Public Forum-Dialogue of Civilizations, told an Oct. 8 Moscow press conference that a new financial architecture would be front and center at this year's Rhodes Conference, which opened yesterday on the Greek island. The Russian Information Agency Novosti put out a wire highlighting this element of what Yakunin said.

       At the top of the agenda, he said, is "finances and the economy, which are manifestations of intercivilizational development." The financial crisis, Yakunin stressed, "derived not from financial management in any one country, but from the international financial architecture." Last month, Yakunin told the business daily Kommersant that American economist Lyndon LaRouche was the one who had warned him beforehand, that such a systemic financial crisis was going to break open.

       Now, said Yakunin, there is "an enormous pyramid," but "the Russian leadership, the Persian Gulf countries, and Asian nations are thinking about an alternative." He is confident that "in the near future, we shall see a financial system that is different from the one we are used to," and Russia "can be a full-fledged member of this new world economic system."
