Il fatto che l’Occidente ignori questi avvenimenti non significa minimamente che essi non accadano.

Il 3 – 5 settembre si terrà a Xiamen il Summit dei Brics. Ora è in corso un seminario preparatorio: semplicemente i Brics stanno tirando per la loro strada.

Strada che tra lo sconcerto degli Occidentali, non condivide quasi in nulla la Weltanschauung imperante in Occidente, né in campo politico, né in campo economico, né in campo sociale. Non solo: non si cura minimamente di cosa faccia l’Occidente.

Ma se l’Occidente non influenza più la condotta dei Brics, saranno allora essi a condizionare l’Occidente.

Da un punto di vista meramente economico, se si considera il pil per potere di acquisto, il mondo genera 108,036,500 milioni Usd, la Cina 17,617,300 (16.31%) e gli Stati Uniti 17,418,00 (16.12%). L’Eurozona rende conto di 11,249,482 (10.41%) ed il Gruppo dei G7 di 31.825,293 (29.46%). Però i Brics conteggiano un pil ppa di 32,379,625 Usd, ossia il 29.97% del pil ppa mondiale. I Brics valgono come i paesi del G7.

Di conseguenza, la voce dell’Occidente vale nel mondo al massimo per il 29.46%, ma quella degli Stati Uniti vale solo il 16.12% e quella dell’Eurozona uno scarno 10.41%.

Il pil ppa rende bene l’idea, ma non è l’unico modo di conteggiare. Secondo altre metodiche i Brics varrebbero il 25% dell’economia mondiale e renderebbero conto del 50% della crescita dei sistemi economici. Un risultato molto simile.

Segnaliamo come questo evento non sia riportato dai media occidentali, dei quali riportiamo alcuni significativi titoli odierni.

Who orgasms most and least, and why

Questo ultimo articolo ci ragguaglia su temi cari ai liberal democratici americani:

«But why does this gender gap exist, and what can be done to achieve orgasm equality? After all, about 40% of women experience sexual dysfunction, associated with a chronic difficulty in achieving orgasm

*

Ci si rende perfettamente conto di quanto sia importante l’iconoclastia americana nel voler rinnegare il proprio retaggio storico, esattamente come ci si rende conto di quanto le femmine occidentali siano incapaci di ottenere l’orgasmo, e della importanza assoluta di parificare gli orgasmi tra i gender differenti.

Ma constatiamo anche come questi problemi interessino esclusivamente gli Occidentali, liberal, non il resto del mondo.

Due righe sul Simposio dei Brics a Quanzhou non avrebbero guastato sulla stampa occidentale.

Poi, non ci si lamenti se i Brics crescono a grande velocità mentre l’Occidente tramonta.

Adesso, piaccia o meno, sono i Brics a decidere cosa fare dell’Occidente.

«Peking University professor and former World Bank chief economist Justin Lin Yifu pointed out at the seminar that among nearly 200 developing economies since the end of the Second World War, only two have transitioned from low-income to high-income economies, with China possibly emerging as the third by 2025.

He attributed the failure to avoid either the middle-income or low income trap, to pursuit of western mainstream economic theories — structuralism, and neoliberalism. He stressed that a right balance between the role of the market and the state was required to achieve breakthroughs, Xinhua reported.

Mr. Lin highlighted that the “secret of China’s success is its use of both ‘invisible hand’ and ‘visible hand,'”. He added that technological innovation and industrial upgrading can proceed smoothly, only when the market and the state played their complementary roles.» [The Hindu]

China Org. 2017-08-17. BRICS governance seminar opens in Quanzhou, Fujian

A seminar focused on governance, with over 160 people from government agencies, business circle and the academia attending, opens in Quanzhou, Fujian Province, on Aug. 17 in the run-up to the BRICS summit early next month.

Themed on “Openness, Inclusiveness, Mutual Benefits and Win-Win: Working Together to Build a Community of Shared Future for Mankind,” the two-day event is hosted by the Publicity Department of the CPC Central Committee and co-organized by the Chinese Academy of Governance and China International Publishing Group (CIPG).

Speaking during the opening ceremony of the event, Huang Kunming, deputy head of the Publicity Department of the CPC Central Committee, pays tribute to the event, an instructive platform for lively discussion and mutual learning.

“It is of great significance for BRICS countries who are undergoing development at a similar stage and facing shared challenges to discuss and learn from each other for a better shared future.”

Five BRICS countries, namely Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, are assuming a greater role in the world arena with statistics showing that their combined economic output accounts for a quarter of the world’s and their contribution to world economic growth is almost 50 percent.

Huang suggests that the seminar should be a long-term program, affording space to bring together think tanks and the media to provide intellectual support for common development while expanding the scale of exchanges and cooperation under an environment of more players joining in.

Mizengo Peter Pinda, former prime minister of Tanzania, viewed the event as a special and unique gathering, commenting: “In a scenario of a successful BRICS, developing countries can identify with the objectives of this seminar of building a shared future for mankind, with transparency, openness and inclusiveness in our cooperation, with mutual benefit and a win-win for all.”

The seminar includes an opening ceremony and three parallel meetings which center respectively on “enhancing reform for common development,” “increasing communication for cultural prosperity,” and “strengthening collaboration for global governance.”


China Org. 2017-08-18. Huang Youyi: BRICS influence beyond five countries

“With improved cooperation, improved economy and shared solutions for fighting world challenges, BRICS will further expand its influence in the next decade,” predicted a Chinese expert on Thursday during a seminar in southeastern China.

Huang Youyi, a member of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) and executive vice president of the Translators Association of China, foresaw the growing impact of the association of emerging countries on the world stage during an interview with China.org.cn on the sidelines of the BRICS Seminar on Governance that opened Aug. 17 in Quanzhou, Fujian Province.

“The actions of the BRICS members have a global impact rather than just being restricted to the five member countries,” said Huang, pointing out that more countries were showing interest in the mechanism and would like to learn from each country’s successful development models.

As many as 160 people from government agencies, business circle and the academia in the BRICS nations and over 10 countries outside the bloc joined the seminar to discuss good practices of domestic governance as well as new approaches to global governance, leading to openness, inclusiveness, mutual benefits and win-win output.

Earlier this year, Foreign Minister Wang Yi said China would explore the expansion modalities for “BRICS Plus” and build a wider partnership by holding dialogues with other major developing countries and organizations, so as to turn BRICS into the world’s most influential platform for South-South cooperation.

Currently, the BRICS group has five member countries – Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa – and potential new members such as Mexico, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. The seminar in Quanzhou, in Huang’s words, “fully reflects the BRICS spirit as well as China’s position of common consultation and win-win resolution”, with people from different parts of the world, including Africa, Asia and Latin America, coming together to exchange ideas and explore various options for governance suited to their own situation.

Explaining China’s approach to domestic governance, Huang said that, after many trials and tribulations and more than 100 years of experience, only in the last decades had the nation managed to find a path suitable to its own conditions, namely, the road of socialism with Chinese characteristics, able to carry out reforms and meet various important goals.

This governance approach could provide a reference point for other countries with some adaptations to meet varying national conditions, he added.

Besides the domestic approach, China’s global governance style has met with strong support, with its ideas like building a community of shared future for mankind, inclusive development and common consultation gaining popularity worldwide.

This, Huang argued, was proved by the sheer number of international participants in and outside the BRICS mechanism attending the Quanzhou seminar.

“The idea of ‘BRICS Plus’ does sound attractive,” he added.

Before the organization, as expected, includes more members, he believed there would be all kinds of forums as well as annual meetings held under the BRICS mechanism involving the participation of more people outside of the five countries.

China will host the ninth BRICS annual summit in the southeastern coastal city of Xiamen, Fujian Province, from September 3 to 5, as the country takes the rotating chair of the influential bloc.
