The reason why the trade agreement is essential and other recommendations that could be wise:
a) China and India need to replace the United States as their larger consumer. The reality is that China keeps buying USA securities, just to keep their factories open. China needs to meet the growing demand for new products by the population of executives and their families in Chinese and Indian companies. These new economic sectors of all those new members of middle class in China have become consumers and investors. However this plan can only help China towards their goals in Latin America which needs development and industry, Asia needs more food and raw materials.
b) To meet the need of our countries to obtain technological equipment for the production of new processes and industries. It is suggested here that Ecuador creates a “trade zone” in Manta where all machinery and products can be imported from Asia while at the same time all products from South America can be exchanged and exported to Asia. Asia is an expert in Fairs as an example the Canton Fair is truly a good example to follow and we need to establish that as soon as possible in Ecuador. Undoubtedly Because of the huge amounts of supply and demand and the benefits of all kinds of logistics, then lower prices can be expected and lower tax tariffs applied to the member of the trade agreement. Prices could be reduced substantially and accessible at a reduced tax cost. In fact special car cost agreements can be made to make cars truly affordable in Latin America. Apart from the advantages in cost reduction, it means creating a center of import / export and global distribution. The largest retailer in the world such as is WAL-MART uses exactly this method to provide cheaper products in all the United States and we are either too dumb to use such simple concept or too radical in ideology to follow proper business practices.
c) The huge cargo ships that transport resources and raw materials to Asia and bring products will benefit by bringing products massively and returned loaded, reducing transport costs to supply all South America and would be benefit to be fully loaded in one port. Ideally, this port is the port of Manta in Ecuador and for petroleum and gas should be the port of San Lorenzo. Asia would have huge benefits as the amount of equipment that is needed to build the entire infrastructure across South American is huge. While all countries can benefit from professional jobs that would be created as each country follows their commitment in this trade agreement. I am hopeful that each country takes upon to improve of this ideas and I am hopeful they will use its best minds for the consolidation of this plan.
The expansion of Manta, San Lorenzo on the pacific coast of Ecuador and the expansion of the ports of Napo and Aguárico is necessary. The railway between Manta and Napo, roads, bridges to joint such railways and highways will generate huge employment in Ecuador in the immediate term. The same will happen in all participants as they initiate their part of this agreement. Asia can provide the loans needed for the project to be carried across the country together.
d ) Brazil would save billions in costs of exports and imports of their products, and it will cut the time significantly for products from and to Asia ( possibly three weeks)since it takes cargo ships traveling around the continent and the time of the Panama Canal, which in addition will save in fuel and therefore help in protecting the environment. If all Brazilian products travel through a port on the Napo River, later though train to Manta and then Asian ports, time is considerably reduced. On the other hand pipelines in Brazil, Peru, and Bolivia could perhaps be integrated as roads for oil and gas. While Bolivia could supply its fabulous gas resources to others in need for their industries or for export to other countries. Thus, creating the possibility of transnational pipelines between countries and the assistance of the United States is crucial.
e) The benefits for Ecuador are very significant as they can import and export their products through the Amazon River and then African and European markets and logically to Brazil. Increasing cooperation and increasing their exports as prices could also be reduced.
f) Bolivia, Uruguay and Paraguay do not have ports to the Pacific and it would be easier to send everything to Ecuador on a plane and eventually in a train system. This would lead to the creation of the first South American interconnected network of trains, which would increase trade and tourism among all countries and will help to achieve regional integration. Thousands of Latin American citizens can visit each other, and even college students could participate in regional competitions, professional organizations can cooperate to integrate education and knowledge. Also everything could be imported via Ecuador and then shipped by air to other countries significantly cutting import costs and therefore help their economies and motivate investment in new industries.
g) Venezuela, Peru, Bolivia could send both oil and gas through a system of international pipelines and multinational cooperation. So cargo ships from China and India could be loaded in Ecuador for the easiest export of their products.
h) All South American countries need to export products to Asia and Australia and the right thing to do is through Ecuador which could become the Hong Kong of South America, providing import and export services. I am sure no changes will be made to the financial system so at least then we could continue justifying dollarization as a means to facilitate international trade, together with a stock exchange where all countries could invest and attract foreign investment more easily.
j) The adaptation of the ports of Manta and San Lorenzo so they can receive the huge cargo ships from China and India, combined with the airports that could receive all the products to and from other countries. This can be done with the cooperation of Latin American companies
k) Two rail lines that come together at the port of Manta, Cuenca, Zamora and Napo for easy transport of minerals and metals. While another railway line to gather Manta, San Lorenzo, Ibarra, Quito and Napo, said railroad to carry and bring products from Ecuadorian ports to ports on the Napo. That could be combined with the rail networks in all countries.
l) The huge investment needed for such infrastructure projects, technology, transport and energy could allow a huge investment from all countries and a stock exchange is needed. China needs to invest and this would allow them to avoid huge risk in billions of dollars in holdings is dollars reserves. Although Ecuador does not have some of the infrastructure needed it could greatly benefit to all nations and all Companies from China, India, Brazil, Venezuela, Bolivia, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, Chile that would be involved as they facilitate trade and bring progress and international cooperation to levels never before seen in South America. A new level of international cooperation is needed to justify the Investment in South America.
Investment and international cooperation are necessary for such decisions, it’s essential for the progress of the whole American continent. Our countries are indeed kidnapped right now with "Trojan Horses" that have been passing laws that claim to be “socialists” but are mere pretext for the global elite to build the infrastructure with the resources of the country, and power hungry politician that want to control their citizens, while expensive loans and oil or mineral guarantees are taken away with the clear objective to prepare the nations to be stolen of all resources and wealth. But every leader should make his nation and its sovereign right the only priority. South America cannot continue to struggle against poverty, against imperialism goals and to be played as pawns of world powers. But above all we can no longer be paralyzed by the disease of political demagoguery struggling among compatriots, arguing failed ideologies and we achieve nothing. We cannot afford to continue failed policies and absurd social experiments that create unsustainable economic programs where the new bureaucracies consume all the taxes perceived by countries and will only achieve to keep us underdeveloped. It is time to join our forces and through mutual cooperation of sister nations allow the development of our people. Such cooperation would enable the international exchange in education, cooperation in medical sciences and in all fields. Cooperation in hybrid plants will produce clean electricity, power generation with wind turbines and solar power, and hydro power, and geothermal power.
The world is facing new challenges. The same area of the Amazon and the Amazon River rely on Ecuadorian glaciers and the number of rivers that flow from the Chimborazo, Cotopaxi, Cayambe, Antisana, Illinizas, Sangay, Reventador, etc is what makes the most affluent rivers such as Napo, Putumayo, Aguarico, Pastaza, Tigre, and Zamora, Machinaza, Santiago and many more rivers that make the Amazon River. But those glaciers are losing volume and melting away year by year. Therefore though this cooperation we should establish a goal to plant at least five million trees in every country as a counterbalance of cooling off the earth by the most massive effort to plant trees in all the mountains of the Andes. Please visit my son’s page and help in this effort. It is vital to clean air and the avoidance of dangerous levels of carbon toxins. Otherwise, in the future we will experience less rain and therefore in the term of twenty years we could experience a drastic reduction of the forest and global warming will melt those glaciers and the water level of the Amazon. For those who believe that this is impossible, they should know that Lake Chad in Africa and pretty close to the equator has disappeared.
Once again geographic position and physical laws on our planet makes the situation even worse. The Equator bulge makes Ecuadorian mountains to be 21 kilometers closer to the sun. In fact there is a difference of 42 Kilometer between the diameter on the equator and between the north and south poles. There should be a study of this phenomenon because while glaciers in Ecuadorian mountains melt we could see a temporary increase in the volume of water in the Amazon, but then there may be a huge drop in the volume of water (less volume of glaciers, less volume of water to the Amazon) which requires an urgent plan to plant millions of trees in the mountains and national parks (I've also created a plan for it) Ecuador has assigned protection zones but without the same international cooperation they are being neglected.
Ecuador enjoys a strategic geographical position both with respect to the South American continent and in the world. There are these factors to be taken into account:
Ecuador has access to the Amazon by several rivers, but the most important are the Rio Napo, and Pastaza, and Aguarico. These are conducive to create ports and facilities for international trade.
The Pacific Ocean and its two major currents: El Niño and Humbolt are off the coast of Ecuador, the ocean currents make navigation faster for large and small ships.
The coasts of Ecuador are conducive to two major ports such as San Lorenzo and Manta.
Thanks to the proposed plan all our countries can share a large investment from the United States that will benefit by massive investment in Wall Street in all companies involve in this plan. China and Asian countries will also benefit of investment in their own stock markets and the massive exports that will be created. However, it is also very important that such investment would not allow the rules of Breton Woods affect this investment. Because the United States is broke. It has massive deficit, massive debt and therefore it has no right to manipulate the monetary systems and demand that once dollars are received then they have the right to devalue the currencies of other countries. That will only increase inflation and double and triple their national debts and rather than providing a solution this will be used as a tool of destroying the sovereignty of countries.
An agreement between all countries should be put in place that such “manipulation by the USA no longer can be allowed” The only way to do so is to retire the Breton Woods agreement and stop the dollar devaluation scheme that it is to be blamed for the factitious and created debt of Latin America. It has been far too long the way that they have double and triple our national debts. To allow such manipulation will derail the investment and bring upon poverty and the increase in national debt and the United States will be the beneficiary while doing nothing whatsoever. This investment must benefit all nations because it leads to job creation and progress within a framework of justice and peace, and cooperation. Trade, tourism, integration and employment generation will take our nations to equitable development and a better society. Therefore we cannot allow old accounting trickery and thievery of external forces to derail such treaty between. Only the huge increase in tourism and development, employment and trade (imports and exports between our countries) will offset the lower tariff rates for products and this will lower prices and bring down inflation considerably. We must fight head on the inflationary effects that tax tariffs and protectionism cause. These savings could represent billions of dollars for each nation. China and India need resources and countries like Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia and Venezuela, Paraguay, Chile, Colombia and Ecuador are so rich in certain subjects that it would benefit from all industries. The same could be said of Asian products that are needed to improve industry in our countries.
While some countries may still claim to the farce o socialism XXI aka project Camelot, Condor, Simpatico, etc. Such socialism has the only goal to impoverish the nations and serves its masters to create massive debts and huge expenditures. We must create a new system based in cooperation, in investment of the people, by the people and for the people. We must eradicate from Latin America such failed policies and experiments and as an act of conscience we must do what is right for our countries. Ask not what the governments can do for their citizens but what the citizens can do to change their countries. Ask not what your ideology or mine could be but what we all can do together regardless of politics and ideology. We must take control of our countries and we must stop believing in this false systems imposed by the elites and bankers. We can lead our countries to a new era of progress and development and this can be the beginning.
I firmly believe that it is essential that these rules and this plan is approved as quickly to save the economy and protect our people.
I do want to state clearly that I have develop this plan alone. I have studied the economic situation of the world since 2004. I have investigated, researched and in the process I have formulated some of this ideas and some have been influenced by some economist, some publications, some books and some plans. I do not mean to violate their copyrights and much less to avoid giving credit where credit is due. But I have initially made notes with the expectation to write a sequel of my novel “Salvacion en las Siete Cuevas”, and a book inspired in Philip Dru and the Prince, those are still a work in progress. But years of looking at the facts and making commentaries largely ignored in my blogs I decided to formulate this plan. I am eternally grateful for the knowledge to those great minds and my sincere apology to all those people. I simply never bothered to write notes placing who gave me an idea or not.
I have received no financing or money from anyone towards creating this plan. I am not involved in politics, the banking system or affiliated to any government. I am not related to anyone in power and I have received nothing from any government, institution or entity. I will truly appreciate if you buy a book or two of my novels that will help in educating my son, the greatest human being I have ever known. My sole purpose in writing this plan as well other plans to save my country from financial ruin, and my plans for my company and my inventions is to help my country, my continent and my people. This is the result of years of studying the economic situation, years of writing recommendations that mostly have been ignored and yet no changes have been made that could prove me wrong. It is my hope that the content of this plan is embraced by leaders of our continent and that it will serve to initiate a program of change. I am not naïve enough to believe that some “leaders” are nothing but puppets of the powers that be. I expect nothing from them.
I am aware that some people will criticize or discard my plan, but any errors that may be contained here will hopefully be corrected by those who criticize it. Some may use this plan for their own goals and agendas. Others would play with their economic policies to try an out-performance by equities and currency depreciation. Others may try to position themselves to play the financial markets' reaction. Yet others may not see it more than a possibility to get an immediate shot in the arm with some money. It is my hope that this plan will translate into greater economic activity and it could serve as a catalyst for a better future. I will hope that fear does not discouraged those governments that are happy to become even more dependent on central banks to do the heavy lifting. Worse yet there could be that one leader that is already talking about a “Patria grande” when in his nations he has done nothing but create massive debt and destroy any democracy that existed. His goals I am afraid will be to position himself to claim this as his plan. Rather than build on the positive measures that efforts of this kind could represent. It is also my hope that this could be used to launch a new economic system that will rehabilitate banks, the economy and democracy itself. Wealth inequality worsens more than ever before and it is time to rescue our society.
I am hopeful that this plan will inspired a sense of duty and that it will pick up a lasting momentum of genuine change. The reason for this is simple: The lacking support of better ideas and the scarcity of any comprehensive policy measures by governments, central banks and World institutions that pretend to solve problems as money changers and loan producers have only created the ever expanding massive debt and prosperity. It is only a lie that can never be achieved as long as a true reform of the World financial system is put in place.
Despite mounting evidence that the World economic system is broke, despite concerns and growing economic disappointments by countries where real hunger is happening, there seems to be little if no urgency among either the leaders of the countries, the private sector, and much less central banks that act as deer caught before the headlights. This plan pretends also to expose its incompetence. There cannot be any more reluctance to act. They could not claim a lack of understanding of the increasing risks of collateral damage and unintended consequences. We are before World War III and you have no excuses not to act. Rather, it reflects the absurd belief that, although it is far from ideal, there is nothing that can be done about the Federal Reserve Bank. The Fed is nothing but another corporation, freeze their assets and stop the evil cabal of bankers. Let us rebuild the economy, this is a start. Indeed, while it is far from being a perfect plan as I have no powers and quite honestly no agenda or budget to influence anything, much less to implement or do anything about it, and I may never see a cent for my time and effort. I have yet to see a single nations that had sent even a thank you note for my previous “suggestions”. It is certainly not THE solution, it can only be the first effort.
I am also hoping that this plan will help develop a more comprehensive governmental policy response. I pray that countries and their central banks find their autonomy and act upon it. Political talk is cheap the reality is we are facing depression, collapse, chaos. Let us do something about it and we could see a light as the ultimate destination — and in particular, whether, when and how governments will finally step up to their economic governance responsibilities.
