Medvedev and Obama will sit down together at the G20 meeting this week, at a time where every meeting is critical. Both Russia and the Obama administration want to normalize relations after a long period where Russia was in decline, and America had taken full advantage.

Those days are gone, both superpowers struggling under the weight of their own excesses. No longer the dominating powers that they once used to be, America and Russia look to each other as not just equals, but also partners in a world where Europe and China have grown to equality in prowess and influence.

America is still fighting the cold war in so many ways, and it has a long haul ahead coming to grips with new geopolitical realities. Far from a “madman”,

Medvedev is a rational player on the international stage with respect and prestige around the world, and Obama will use his own popularity to cement a friendship that will see the both of them through a very trying decade to come for each.

“Road to Hell”

The EU, backed by most other major holders of US debt, are getting pretty pissed about rescuing America at their expense.

The result could be a failure to coordinate world wide stimulus spending, which would collapse the American dollar, and cause nations holding trillions in American debt to both dump the USD, and move to a more internationally stable financial regime.

Let loose the dollars of war?

“Unthinkable Measures” of  “New Internationalism”

New World Order has been claimed by the wing nut right in America, so a new semantic is clearly in need. Gordon Brown of the UK suggests a few, with “Progressive Multinationalism” my favorite.

There will be a new global order, no matter what we all call it, and it appears Brown – the English speaking European member – has the dubious job of delivering the message to America.

Good luck with that, Gordon.

Americans Ignore The Cancer Beyond Its Borders

Kinda like having a peeing end of the pool.

With the focus on General Motors and the collapse of the vital American auto economy, most forget that this is a worldwide calamity. Europeans, deep into the heart of the old Soviet Empire, all are suffering at the meltdown of the American Way.

Romania is just one of dozens of examples, none of which make the media here in the west. Labour heavy automakers are shutting down, auto suppliers falling like dominoes, and simple citizens of the recent western way are being tossed onto heaps of hopelessness and despair.

Worse, American controlled international safety nets like the World bank and the IMF make bail out support contingent on dismantling social safety nets – as if nothing has changed in the world.

While we here in the west agonize over highly paid union members and a lifestyle – even at its worst – which is light years ahead of countries like Romania, any solution here is pointless without one there.

Europeans Smell A Wounded Foe

American protectionism and fiscal deficits are on a headlong collision course with European “Global” finance and monetary policy. Europeans (as well as every other economic entity on the planet) are determined to remove America and her printing presses from leadership of the global finance system. They want a new financial architecture to replace the old and broken model of Bretton Woods. The Americans want it all back to where it was before the house of cards collapsed under its own weight.

Absolutely nobody in America is aware of this yet, while many in the world have been grumbling for some time about either American economic hegemony, or the simple failure of Bretton Woods over the last 30 years. The result may be an immovable force against irresistible momentum.

Historically, these kinds of clusterfcuk’s have resolved themselves in egregious acts of protectionism, and we can expect the Americans to go first, as indeed they already have. All we wait for now are what the Europeans will do, and what kind of support they get for it.

Oh, and BTW…protectionism right now would be akin to putting a grenade in your mouth a mumbling “Go ahead, make my day”.
