BRICS 2009-2014: Five years of lost opportunities for Europe …

LEAP 2020

27th July, 2014

When the BRIC launched their own club in 2009[1], their goal was pretty simple: to provide a group strong enough to initiate and drive the reform of the global governance institutions. This dynamic alliance intended to pursue their adjustment to the new realities of a multi-polar world in which they were the main actors : to reconcile voting weight and financial participation in the IMF[2] and the World Bank, to integrate the  constraints of the new powers in this WTO[3]“philosophy” and to involve the dollar in a basket of currencies of significant world economies in order to create a new international trading currency, a stronger and more representative[4] one…

Uncouple Europe from the USA

Posted by seumasach on April 16, 2014

Europe is at a crucial turning point: it can either go on to emerge as sovereign, political union at the heart of  the post-imperial, multipolar world order or it will fragment politically and revert to a fiefdom of Anglo-Saxon financial feudalism. Given the terminal economic crisis in the US/UK,  and the weakness of the dollar/pound, the latter prospect seems unlikely, but, if the disfunctionality of the European leadership which the Ukrainian crisis has revealed is not remedied, the worst cannot be discounted.

Découpler l’Europe des Etats-Unis

Jean-Paul Baquiast

15th April, 2014


Cette idée ne doit pas être confondue avec celle recommandant une rupture avec les Etats-Unis. Il s’agirait seulement de prendre beaucoup plus d’indépendance à leur égard. La politique qu’ils conduisent actuellement dans la crise ukrainienne, en entrainant l’Otan avec eux, ne peut que conduire à des difficultés insurmontables pour l’Europe. Beaucoup d’Européens sensés commencent à s’en rendre compte, mais les vieilles adhérences sont difficiles à dénouer.

Towards a Euro-BRICS mini-summit

Posted by seumasach on January 27, 2013

A recommendation to Euro-BRICS leaders: Organize a mini Euro-BRICS Summit, ahead of the St Petersburg G20, in order to develop common strategic positions to exit the crisis and bring global governance into the XXI° century

LEAP 2020

16th January, 2013

As a result of the 3rd Euro-BRICS seminar organized by LEAP in partnership with MGIMO in Cannes on September 27-28, 2012, the experts from Euroland and BRICS countries who gathered for the occasion, wished to give their leaders a series of arguments in favour of holding a mini-Euro-BRICS summit ahead of the St Petersburg G20. This recommendation is in line with two other warnings given to the G20 leaders in 2009 (Open letter to the London-G20 leaders, 03/24/2009) and in 2011 (Advice to the Cannes-G20 leaders, 09/15/2011) relating to the management of the global systemic crisis at the initiative of Franck Biancheri, director of Studies and Strategy at LEAP, who passed away last October 30th. This letter is also intended as a tribute to all the energy he expended over four years, despite his illness: explaining the crisis, formulating policy recommendations to solve it, and creating the tools to make these recommendations heard.
