“I see this global new deal as an agreement that every continent injects resources into its economy. I believe that central to this new investment is that every country backs a green recovery for the future, that every country that wishes to participate in the international financial system agrees common principles for financial regulation, coordinated internationally, and changes to their own banking system that will bring us shared prosperity once again. And that, together, we must agree to reform the mandate and governance of global institutions to recognise the changing shape of the world economy and the emergence of new players.”
– “The Special Relationship is Going Global,” written by Fmr. British PM Gordon Brown for The Sunday Times, March 1, 2009, advocating the very same New Deal policies which extended the Great Depression in America for a half-dozen years until World War II brought us prosperity once again.
