Solving the Emerging Crisis

Resolving the Global Economic Crisis

“Solving the Global Economic Crisis requires the involvement and participation of Emerging Nations.”  The Quotations of Slim Fairview


Before the global economic crisis can be solved, the problems of emerging nations must be addressed—by the emerging nations themselves.  They must take charge.  Autonomy = Equality.   Therefore, the first three things that must be done are to establish the following:

Emerging Nations Economic Union

Emerging Nations Economic Unions

Global Consortium of Emerging Economic Unions


Areas I’ve discussed in Emerging Nations Economic Union involve a combination of Cash Payments + Capital Investment for by Industrialised Nations that want to do business with Emerging Economies.

Cash payments plus capital investment  This will result in declining foreign direct investment over time as revenues increase from various sources, enabling each emerging economy to move toward autonomy.

Autonomy = Equality.

Capital Investment should be spread throughout each nation and among a variety of sectors and industries. For example:


Private: Oil, Solar, Hydroelectric

Public:  Government owned or regulated monopolies E.g. utilities (Public Utilities) analogous to our old Phone Company, “Ma Bell”.


Emerging Nations can best be served by establishing a Nation to Nation Exchange; a marketplace for doing business with the nations in the Emerging Nations Union--an exchange, not unlike the Stock Exchange for Representatives from industrialised Nations and Representatives from Emerging Economies to meet and to negotiate transactions.


1.  Emerging World Bank.  This is to handle financial transactions a monetary transfers in trade and commerce.

2.  Emerging World Monetary Fund.  This is to bring funds to activities in the various emerging nations through MicroFinance and other programmes.

3.  Emerging World Council.  This is to provide a legal framework and structure and to serve as The Legal Entity for relationships with other legal entities and structures.  For example: for dealing with

  • The World Bank
  • The IMF
  • The World Court
  • The World Health Organisation

  • Et. Alia.

This enables Emerging Nations to speak with a collective voice and to have the clout of those who represent more than 2,000,000,000 (Two Billion) people in addition to the resources and natural resources rightly belonging to the more than 2,000,000,000 people who live in the countries of the Emerging Nations Economic Union.

This is a new version of the law of large numbers.  In this version:

 “You represent a large number of the world’s People; 
therefore you participate in making the laws.”

Emerging World Court:  This is to resolve disputes among the Emerging Nations and to resolve other matters as established and agreed to at the Emerging World Council.

IV.  Benefits to Emerging Nations

With the four legal entities established

  • Emerging World Bank
  • Emerging World Monetary Fund
  • Emerging World Council
  • Emerging World Court

And with

Several Emerging Nations Economic Unions having been established

And with

A Union of Emerging Economies Union having been established

The Emerging Economies can begin to benefit from size and co-operations with

  • More leverage
  • More negotiating power
  • Better Global Organisation
  • Better Long term strategic planning
  • Better results for a better life for more and more people.

V.  Who and Where are You?

This is for the emerging nations to decide for themselves.  This worked for The European Union (Do not adopt a single currency);  It is in evidence as China attempts to embrace Western Asia; It may include the Middle East as OPEC attempts to protect future oil revenues; It is being planned for Eastern Europe with President Putin’s plan for a Eurasian Economic Union; and can be vital in Asia, Africa, and in Latin America.  And do not forget NAFTA.

VI.  Caveat

At the conclusion of my report on Economic Development in the Slate Belt area of Pennsylvania, USA 13 years ago, I issued this stern admonition to my fellow Slate Belt Citizens.  I warned them of the results of our failure to act.  I said,

“If we don’t do it, others will. However, they won’t do it for us, and they won’t do it with us, they will do it to us.”

Now is the time for Emerging Nations to form their Emerging Nations Economic Union and a Union of Emerging Economic Unions.

VII. Epilogue

Form Follows Function—Bauhaus.

Slim Fairview, “If you can’t sit on it, it isn’t a chair.  However, just because you can sit on it, doesn’t mean it is a chair.

“If you can’t eat it, it’s not food.  However, just because you can eat it, doesn’t mean it is food.”

An Old Chinese Saying warned of this:  “Never underestimate the power of a symbolic gesture.”

Slim Fairview: “Remember, the power of a symbolic gesture resides with the person making the gesture.”

People Can’t Eat Symbolic Gestures.

"You cannot stop the arrival of history, you can only delay it.  History is coming." ~ Slim Fairview
