    Visibly Annoyed and Aloof Obama Gets Slammed by Brazilian President Over U.S. Monetary Policy

    In a meeting where neither looks very happy with the other, Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff lambastes President Obama over expansionist monetary policies that are having a direct impact on the currencies of emerging economies, including her own.

    Throughout the clip, as Rousseff discusses her concerns over US monetary policy, President Obama seems visibly annoyed and distant, giving the impression he’d rather be teeing off than discussing the critical monetary, fiscal and economic issues facing the world. The President’s body language – his twiddling of the thumbs, rubbing the corners of his mouth, inability to remain focused – overtly indicates either his complete disinterest in how US monetary policy affects our global trading partners, or that he simply doesn’t understand what this woman is talking about.

    I also voiced to President Obama Brazil’s concern regarding the monetary expansion policies that ultimately mean that countries that have a surplus be able to strike a balance in those economic monetary expansion policies through fiscal policies that are ultimately based on expanding investments.  Such expansionist monetary policies in and of themselves, in isolation regarding the fiscal policies, ultimately lead to a depreciation  in the value of the currency of developed countries, thus impairing growth outlooks in emerging countries.

    This isn’t the first time Rousseff has raised alarms about inflation-exporting policies of the US central bank. Earlier this year she noted that the “monetary tsunami” from the United States is forcing other currencies down relative to the US dollar, making its exports less competitive in the global market place.

    While our media and government shelter us from the reality of global instability, it is becoming increasingly clear that leaders of the developed and emerging economic world know exactly what’s happening and who’s behind it. Based on President Rousseff’s body langauge and facial expressions as she met with President Obama, she seems quite disgusted over the whole matter.

        Remember I said we had a 3.6 earthquake last night?

        A 1.5 in Yorkshire this morning, strange, very strange for this part of the world.

            Hi Peter

            We get a teeny weenie maybe once a year, more of a wobble than a tremble. Odd thing is normally it is a 1 maybe a bit more. The last 2.5 some years back was splashed over the tv, papers the lot.

            This time we have a 3.6 and a 1.5 within hours and it has barely been mentioned.

            You are taking about a country where four inches of snow is a national disaster… An earthquake, well, major league incident, and there is hardly anything mentioned. That’s what I am intrigued about.

            You have to remember scale Peter, my country is considerably shorter than some of your fault line, a bit of unzipping here may mean a ferry to take the kids to school lol.

            Take care catch you later

        She is not complaining because the US is sending a “monetary tsunami” across the globe.

        She is complaining because a decline in the value of the dollar (read: the global purchasing power of the American people) would cut OUR purchases of Brazil’s products, as the Real rises in value against the dollar, and tourism would drop.

        As the Real, the Rmb, and other cheap, really cheap currencies become more aligned to equilibrium with the dollar, then the wealth of America; or rather less wealth of America flows to Brazil and these other countries.

        Eventually under this process of equilibrium, if all world currencies would be reasonably equal in value with no nation gaining an unfair financial advantage over another based upon the value of their currencies; then production (read jobs) would flow to those countries where the workers are the most productive in the world. Read America.

        These offshore countries want it THEIR way.

        They want OUR manufacturing base; subsidies and or foreign aid; cheap loans from the world bank (that’s US); and they want a currency system that benefits THEIR exports and supports THEIR jobs at OUR expense.

        Its social welfare for other countries that is paid for by the American worker, taxpayer and family when their currencies are manipulated lower than the dollar.

        I have posted the “sweatshirt index” several times here over the past two years to explain the rising costs of production in China. This economic process applies to “services” as well as manufactured goods.

        Now let me give you a new index: the oldest index in the world. The “P Index”.

        A cursory check of the Global P Index suggests that one hour with a “full service escort” costs the equivalent of $50 US Dollars in Columbia. That same service in California runs $200 to $300 for an hour (according to internet sources).

        Likewise a doctor’s office fee in Panama is about $50, while a doctor’s office visit in Arizona is about $200. But the average wage in Panama in dollars is about $12,000 a year. Columbia $6,000.

        Its all relative people.

        Disclaimers: I have never been in Columbia or Panama. Haven’t been to a doctor in a decade, and haven’t been in California for longer than that.

        Note: Product and quality may vary by location. Price may vary depending upon your negotiating skills. The lesson to learn from this article is:

        Practice your bartering! :-)

          Notice how even a small increase in slave wages in China gets companies to look for other slave wage markets. With shipping expenses, Chinese exports to USA are competetive only as long as they pay slave wages.

          You bring up a good point, considering this is what is happening in Europe. The Germans are having to prop everyone else up and when the Germans attempt to put some type of restriction on it the other nations get visibly PO’ed. How would the President of Brazil like it if we cut all aid to Brazil and greatly restricted Brazilian imports into the United States? Someone needs to tell nations like brazil that there is no inherent right to sell your products in US markets

            John W; I do not know whether the US is giving direct aid to Brazil, but it is certainly a developed country, rich in all resources like the United States, and its currency the Real, is very, very cheap.

            This represents a subsidy by all measures.

            Long ago there was much noise about, and finally general agreement that, the work of a mother and housewife is indeed work, and hard work, and more necessary and to be proud of than most.

            Secondly, most people DREAM of the “Dad works, Mom raises the children” life.

            This is turning into a scary-whining-you-owe-me black guy vs. Ward Cleaver race.

            Just looked her up on Wiki. Interesting background. The fact she was a guerilla fighter was interesting. I think anyone who has the balls to fight against and help overthrow a dictatorial and Militeristic Goverment must be a decent person. One wonders if in 30 or 40 years time, the US will have a President who fought in the Second American Civil War or Second American Revolution to help bring about change and restore the Constitution? Or will the same oppressive leaders be still in power? My bets on a continuation of what’s set up now.

            RWM: Not at all. O’bummer is trying to lower unemployment in America: that unemployment represents the jobs that many here do not have.

            He can only increase jobs by reversing the FREE TRADE phenomena that has decimated the middle class, in earnest, over the last decade; while YOUR right wing hero, GWB allowed 42,400 factories and 60 million jobs to be exported offshore while he spent the American treasury into oblivion (read YOUR tax dollars)by pursuing wars to spread Crony Capitalism.

            Economically, the dollar must fall in relation to other currencies if America is to retain its jobs or get the old ones back.

            I wouldn’t like getting lambasted by a guest in my house, either, who was trying to line her countries pockets at the expense of the American worker, taxpayer, family, and small business person.

            The bitch was rude. And she is greedy. Her desire for “growth” means growth for Brazil, not US.

            Her desire for technology and science is her desire to transfer OUR capabilities to her country to make HER look good.

            If I was O’bummer I would have bitch slapped her and kicked her ass out the door to Pennsylvania avenue and called her a cab to the airport.

            I am NO fan of O’bummer. He is a Kenyan and a fraud and belongs in jail. But he is right to be pissed at an ungrateful guest who has insulted all of US!

He is of the Dark Side, and we’re not talking racial profiling, here. He’s demonic and a reflection of some aspect of our society that worships him.

        If he wins a second term, it’s over folks. His devotees will be too much for us to handle.

          “The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting an inexperienced man like him with the Presidency.

          It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama Presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their President.

          The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America.

          Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.

          The Republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their President.

        Patriot,
        Obama is the culmination of affirmative action and the political correct asswipes that think you should not keep score in t-ball games because it hurts kids self esteem. That everyone should get a trophy and we should dumb down the education system so the idiots don’t feel bad and the smart kids do not get a big head and think they are better than anyone else. That is why our country is going to sh!t and the rest of the world is overtaking us. I have more respect for my honest mechanic who dropped out of high school than some of these arrogant , communist Harvard Law school grads who think we are peasants that can not take care of ourselves.

        From all that I see, Obama will be reelected simply because over 50% of the voters have been bought-off by “your tax money at work”. From “bail-outs” to food stamps, most recipients think that Obama can assure that the good-times will rollick on. The end of happy daze is not being recognized by a majority.

        Because Obama is their symbol, not a lot of attention is being paid to other elective offices. Thus, it just may be that there may be enough constitutionalists elected to the senate and the house to put a halt to “Obama-vision”.

        You can “prep” for the child snatchers. I did when I first suspected my kid might have an issue on the advice of other Mums, and am soooo grateful God directed me to do so as those preps were needed when my son was physically abused by a teacher at school.

        Sadly it’s becoming standard practice in some parts of the UK to blame parents of kids with disabilities for causing their child’s disability if they challenge any aspect of that child’s treatment by the health or education system. Luckily the disability charities are alert to this and very supportive. There are also several active internet based parents groups that help each other out.

        To give you a direct example of what I’m talking about – ABA is a standard autism therapy in the US, yet I know several parents for whom the official request for this therapy has resulted in a child protection investigation. It’s designed to intimidate parents into compliance with the nanny state, rather than fund expensive therapies for those that need it, or would take action against those that take advantage of the vulnerable.

        I really feel for Burt and what she’s going thru regarding her Mum as I’ve also had to wade through the treacle (and lies!) known as our court system on behalf of a loved one.

        Ireland doesn’t have a forced adoption law so many UK parents flee there, if they can act fast enough.

        Do note I only know about the issue with “defiant” parents of kids with genuine disbabilities – I’m not any kind of social worker or child protection professional.

            That’s not true.

            From the article above, “… the vast majority of goods and services sold in the United States are produced here. In 2010, total imports were about 16 percent of U.S. gross domestic product, and of that, 2.5 percent came from China. A total of 88.5 percent of U.S. consumer spending is on items made in the United States,…

            [I know a Lot of People push the false meme that this is not the case, so it's understandable many People do not know this. But don't take my word for it, go check it out.]

            “Today’s manufacturing worker is so productive that the value of his average output is $234,220, three times higher than it was in 1980 and twice as high as it was in 1990. That means more can be produced with fewer workers, resulting in a precipitous fall in manufacturing jobs, from 19.5 million jobs in 1979 to a little more than 10 million today.” …

            Clark: While your numbers are accurate, they are also misleading. Nice try. :-)

            Yes most manufacturing of American consumed goods are produced in America; after all WE have a GDP of more than $14 trillion.

            But that $14 trillion GDP is a lot more than just manufacturing which is just one reason that your numbers do not tell the true story.

            First while manufacturing may have accounted for 19.5 million jobs in 1979 and only 10 million jobs today; that number suggests that manufacturing jobs remained static during that 30 year time span.

            It didn’t.

            During that 30 year time span, more than 42,400 American factories were transferred offshore by the GB’s who built those factories offshore with American depositor funds. These offshore factories represent 60 million American jobs.

            You are correct when you say that American workers are the most productive in the world and that the value of his output is about $235,000 a year, or more than seven times the wage of the average worker. Maybe only 4 or 5 times the total annual cost of an American worker.

            Professionally, workers only generate about 3 or four times their costs.

            So if American workers can produce four or five times their cost, why have 42,400 factories and 60 million factory jobs been shipped offshore?

            And more to the point, while the Chinese component of 2.5% of OUR GDP appears to be a small percentage it is a very large number, as evidenced by OUR trade deficit with China which was more than $300 billion last year.

            How mush is $300 billion you ask? Well, that represents almost half of OUR national debt last year.

            It would also be enough money every year to give Americans the same health care plan that Congress has; or the same retirement program that they have.

            FREE TRADE is not free. It is not a FREEDOM like you and Lew Rockwell would have US believe.

    21. Be informed says:

      Other countries are getting sick and tired of holding up the U.S. debt and gfetting less and less for doing so each month. Unless the U.S. does something to stop the run away debt, other countries are going to get togather and do something about it. Calling that debt and demanding to be paid back would hurt the U.S. a lot and cause the economics in the U.S. to almost collapse. I say alomst collapse because the U.S. would just barrow from something else to pay off the a certain part of the debt only to drive the other part of debt even higher. It would be like someone taking out another brand new credit card to be able to pay the minimum balance on the outstanding credit cards due.

      It is unbelievable, as the other countries continue to decide to DUMP the U.S. dollar as means of monetary transactions, the media continues to spoon feed the audience that the economy is fully recovering. Heard this morning that the bottom will be reached in the housing markets and everything will be fine then because everyone will start buying homes again the economy will boom. What a truck load of horse manure. There are homes going for prices now way before what they said was rock bottom. The housing market is a chasm where no one knows where the bottom is.

      Those imbeciles like helicopter ben “THINK”, and the word think is a kind word, that they can print their way out of debt in hopes of avoiding deflation. The debt is what is to worry about because it leads to hyperinflation and losing your currency to the world markets. Deflation has advantages because prices go down without the debt going up, eventually it does correct itself when people start buying the necessities again. It just looks horrible for those in office to naturally let the economy heal itself.

      So what do those jackasses in office, and I am talking about both parties do? They try to make it appear like everything is fine, all the while letting the country fall so far into debt that other countries decide one day to dump the U.S. as a bad risk. Why don’t politicians see this, especially after the first warning shot when the U.S. got its credit rating downgrades? They ONLY care about getting elected and that means putting enough bandages on to temporarily stop the gushing and make it look promising enough until the day after the election.

      Just look at Greece. If Greece was not part of the European Union and did not have much money invested in it, the world would let Greece sink into an Egypt level of chaos and forget it. Then NATO would set up some emergency government there for the strategic importance in regards to geography.

      The U.S. has this arrogant notion that it is too important to fail, and other countries will not allow this to happen. Other countries are too selfish to let their own countries go down with a sinking ship and will eventually save their own asses. That will be the day, whether it be a basket currency to purchase oil or other means of economic saviour for other countries, that the U.S. has a major collapse inside and out.

      At this point the U.S. can do two things, either fall apart and go into a martial law state in attempt to bring order to a crumpled and near destroyed infrastructure of the countrhy. Or it can do what many other large superpower countries have done to try to save itself, fall back and use its military, probably some false flag episode. In either case those living in the U.S. are going to know what being F’ed is going to feel like.

      This is why people need to get some serious supplies stocked up now so they can at least have a better chance of weathering the storm. Extra money should be thought of putting away so your family can eat when the store shelves are emptier than old mother hubbard’s cupboards. The government will likely after martial law is declared ONLY supply those with food and other needed supplies with “selling your soul” type provisions.

    22. Have you ever forced a surly teenager to go someplace they don’t want to go? You know how they pout and sigh and make it very obvious to everyone around them that they’ve been dragged there?

      I have, and the teenager’s sullen expression looked incredibly like that of the very childish and cranky Barack Obama in this video.

      Ok, so this isnt quite on topic, but I’m compiling a report to present to my brother on the “impending doom” that seems inevitable for the world. I’d like to start with the financial crisis in the US and how that translates to the world, to start. I need to use cold hard facts as he is quite the skeptic, but he doesnt disregard it completely. Can anyone give a good idea on how a TOC (table of contents) for this subject might look like? I appreciate any ideas you might be able to contribute.

      To some degree it sounds like she’s blaming Brazil’s economic troubles on Obama. A weaker dollar doesn’t make other countries currencies weaker. It makes whatever they buy with their dollars more expensive. The declining dollar is the reason the BRICS are moving towards trading among themselves in their own currencies. The BRICS are Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa. The declining dollar is the reason that eventually it will be abandoned as the world’s reserve currency and OPEC will stop selling oil in dollars.

        The day oil is no longer dealt in dollars is the day the game is up. Unless of course the US was to become self sufficient in oil. Then we would own them which is why that will never happen.

      “…OPEC will stop selling oil in dollars.”

      Thems fighting words.

      The US has and will overthrow nations and use covert and overt war to protect the oil peg.

      If Saddam was exporting coconuts we wouldn’t have been there.

      The headline said “Visibly Annoyed and Aloof Obama Gets Slammed by Brazilian President Over U.S. Monetary Policy”

      He should be annoyed, and aloof, and he should get slammed. He just shouldn’t be visible.

      Obama has virtually NOTHING to do with the expansion of the money supply. The Fed is responsible for that. If Romney gets elected NOTHING will change regarding the Fed.

      Bernanke was not elected and we cannot fire him, no matter how bad he is.

      But go on blaming Obama if it makes you feel better. If Romney is President next year, you’ll just have to go back to blaming Pelosi and Reid for everything bad in the country.

      • I dare say that Obama didn’t have a clue about what she was talking about however, to think that the government has no control over the Federal Reserve is a fool’s error. The FED, despite all the rhetoric to the contrary, is a political entity. In particular, the Board of Governors and the FED Chairmanship are government appointees, thus the whole FED system is politicized by its very nature of organization and operation.

        The Federal Reserve is the Lapdog of the government and without it this government could never do what it does or operate with disregard for the Constitution. The relationship between government and the FED are symbiotic, one cannot exist in its present form without the other. The FED is a creation of government and this government is a creation of the FED. The FED operates primarily to benefit this government and the government’s Mercantilist system of Patronages.

        The FED is neither a private banking system or a government entity, but a mixture making up a Mercantilist system, if you will a Corporatist system.

      Greetings Everyone!
      Quite a photo…..
      After hearing about the President’s time in Harvard,his extensive use of teleprompters and the like,it all starts to make sense.Given George W.’s time in office,he looked like the mainstreet person’s F.D.R.Except F.D.R. would NEVER have allowed a another leader to “upset” him,not in public,at least.Time however,has shown it otherwise in the current President’s case.To his credit,he has done a few good things for the general good.But might as well be a old-time Republican for most everything else.Never fear though,”Ol’Uncle two-faced Mitt R.” will be beaten soundly in November.Deservedly so.Not much of a choice either way.So Many things are spinning out of control of any leader no matter who is next in office.Sites like this one would be far smaller if not for what’s coming around the corner….
      And by the way,is it REALLY necessary to call someone else here a nasty epithet as you disagree with them?
      I thought that was what the people called “flamers and Trolls” did with their limited simian mental resources.
      Perhaps Mac,you should have a pay-only secondary site for such verbose tackiness to be carried on exclusively!.Just think how much fiat money could be made!Almost like what profits porn makes from the ‘Net!
      What ever you call it,It wastes about as much space here as “I’m First!”

      Clearly, the US government knows very well that they are exporting US inflation to all of our trading partners and that is just fine with them. What they do not want is to hear any complaining about it. Well, tough noogie, because they are harming our trading partners financially with these policies and they ARE going to hear about it… right up to the point where all of the creditor nations say, “Screw it, we’re not trading with you bozos anymore”.

      Not only could that happen, it is starting to happen already. Japan and China are now trading using their own currencies, rather than using the US dollar as a world reserve currency go-between. China and Russia are doing the same. India and Brazil are jumping into the mix as well. Before long, the fast growing economies of the world will discover, if they haven’t already, that they can get along just fine without the US or Europe. When that day comes, it will be because of the incompetent fiscal and monetary policies that have been implemented over the past 30 or so years. Got any physical gold or silver? We’d better.

      While I don’t deny that Obama is both disconnected and over his head, I think his reaction here is normal.

      The interpreter here is horrible, and the Brazillian president/ex(?)-terrorist had to correct him several times. If I had to sit through this knowing that I wouldn’t get the real message until after through my ambassador, I would act much the same way.

      How else is Obama going to act? He is working to the plan; the plan is to keep the petro-dollar, the biggest revenue stream, flowing. To do that, he must maintain a trade deficit and continue the currency wars against all non-G5 (developing and dependent nations). Keep watching as the regimes change in all the petroleum nations, except those compliant with the plan. This ultimately takes away liberty and wealth from the nations that don’t cooperate. What he is telling Ms. Brazil is that he does not care if her liberties or wealth are at risk – you’re not part of the manifest destiny.
