  • The economic imbalances and poor policy response is not only suffered by emerging economies, but all over the world. Pro-democratic movements that can be a better platform to correct these imbalances are a good thing. We can certainly use some correcting in this country too starting with the federal reserve and treasury and then helping out globally by dissolving the IMF and Worldbank.
