They will continue rising Latin American currencies? when the World Bank makes a study and expected that Brazil will continue to grow and that can, in 2016, be it fifth largest economy in the world, you are placing us a challenge, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, President of Brazil. Latin American currencies continue under pressure toward appreciation against the greater flow of capital that is coming to the region product of the desire of good returns by investors. It will thus continue the trend? Other Latin American currencies could join this group? You should not surprise us that is still occurring in Brazil. Despite the entry of capital tax, incentives for investors to continue facing the Brazilian economy, are still present. Is that the strength of the economy of Brazil and very good perspective that observes and growth that generates the kind of praise that just made the World Bank, make investments have an important return waited with a limited level of risk.

And that risk is also limited in the feeling of the market due to the prudent policies that Lula’s Government, develops as the referred tax, to avoid stress in the economy. The region is in the sights of investors who recognize the test surpassed by these economies, with the recent international financial crisis, a clear sign of maturity of Government and Latin American economies that increase the probability of observing a real evolution in the region toward economic development. The attraction that is keeping the region for investors is manifested in continuous pressure that are suffering most of the Latin American currencies toward appreciation. For example, the Brazilian real is so far the currency that was most appreciated in the year in a magnitude of 35% (which spent 2.31 reais earlier this year to the current level of 1.71 reais to the dollar), followed by the Chilean peso, which appreciated by 20% (which went from $638 to $532 in so far of the) year), and the Colombian peso that made by 17% (from $2.247 to the 1915 $ per dollar throughout the year).

In some countries, such as Venezuela, large traditional segments of the TL, they allied and complicit with the more conservative and reactionary of right-wing and corporate Creole sectors, were made to combat all this Bolivarian and Latin American revolutionary tendency of socialism of the 21st century. Being only as a liberating remnant, the ideal of the liberation theology, holding small political and religious sectors invisible by religious hierarchies and political domes. Some former leaders of the TL in Venezuela and the continent, were changing their ideological and theological stance, have made countless attempts to replace the Marxist method of analysis, with emphasis based more on alleged Christian humanisms or new neutral, lacking political analysis of the fighting spirit of the TL. This has allowed some sectors religious and political to conform to the ideals of right and the oligarchies fighting socialism and Liberation of our peoples. Calvinism, as theological and historical thinking system, has much to contribute with your own pedagogy and doctrine Social, to the creation of new political, ideological and epistemological, models based on a structure of thought, coherent and consistent with the ideals of liberation of our peoples.

Can the Fed regulate the financial system without causing another crisis? 21 July 2009 the recession in the U.S. economy, is slowly seeing its end. In yesterday is reported the index reading for United States of anticipated economic indicators which rose 0.7 percent in the month of June surpassing market expectations. And with the beginning of the economic recovery, the debate on the regulation of the U.S. financial system, returns to the center of the scene. The response of the Government of Barack Obama, has been acting on the heart of the problem and modify the regulation of entities that make up the financial system, where the U.S.

Federal Reserve took on a new role. In the month of June, it became known the proposal for reform of the financial system drawn up by the Government of Obama where the Federal Reserve received new powers, helped by several agencies, and the Treasury to oversee large financial firms whose potential collapse could threaten the system. The so-called report Rebuilding Financial Supervision and regulation, the Government contemplates that the Fed should also monitor systemic risks in the financial markets more closely, requesting reports to financial institutions to see if they meet the required minimum capital requirements and monitor matrices and subsidiaries of all financial companies, including those that belong to non-regulated markets or are abroad. In addition, the Fed would take control of regulation of markets that previously lacked Regulation (the so-called over the counter), such as derivatives and securitisation. The greatest power that the reform of the system of regulation and supervision gives the Fed runs not reform but that it goes far beyond, reconsidering aspects such as financial consumer protection or remuneration to senior managers. However, the major questions that have been heard are linked to the greater power of the Fed and not a few who raised their objections to his new role.
