Ciro Gomes said this week that certain state-owned companies can not be privatized and that they would never sign a letter that subordinated the interests of the people to those of the financial sector
It is not of today that Ciro Gomes gives statements that bother the entity that some media insist on calling " Marketplace ¹ ". Recently, Cyrus emphatically stated that he would "never sign" a play like Letter to Brazilians , signed by Lula on 2002 to appease the moods of speculators.
The letter proposed not to tamper with certain beekeepers defended by the national plutocracy, especially related to the financial system. At the time, the former president's commitment was accompanied by the appointment of ex-Tucano Henrique Meirelles (now the current farm minister) to the BC presidency to keep a "less hostile" primer to plutocratic interests.
In this sense, Cyrus may have bothered some powerful: it reiterated that it is not subordinated to the interests of the Marketplace ¹ and said that these interests should be subordinate to those of workers . In other words, inflation and exchange should not be pursued if they do not meet the prerequisite of generating full employment in the country and, consequently, favor the export and production of domestic industry.
Nelson Marconi, pedestrians economic adviser, has already said that "State and Marketplace ² are complementary, "as well as Cyrus has stated that "we must respect the efficiency of the Marketplace ² ". What is missing from some media is to specify which of the " markets "The former governor is half displeased with his statements.
What he really advocates is the Marketplace ² which allocates resources, generates production, income and employment, and not that which generates money over money and which is in an oligopolized situation due to the actions of private banks (and the gravitation around them that they impose on public banks) in the name of better exchange rates and inflation for the maintenance of its exorbitant profits (and for speculation in general).
Having made these important reservations about his unwillingness to subordinate himself to the demands of the national rentier elite, Cyrus still says that Embraer should be taken back by the Brazilian government which Eletrobrás can not be privatized.
The Cearense justified their aversion to the privatization of these state-owned enterprises, stating that, for strategic reasons and national sovereignty, certain sectors can not be privatized, especially when they have direct relation with scarce natural resources and with the well-being of the population.
If we had an energy crisis, for example, would we need to negotiate a solution with the foreigners who own the Eletrobrás property, leaving the stability of the country and our people to the margin of external interests? It is worth remembering that it is not uncommon for foreign state-owned companies to acquire Brazilian state-owned companies.
The former mayor also said that, despite his positions, "he would not be scared" (in the Marketplace ¹) if it were entrusted with the task of governing Brazil. Perhaps because it is not possible to be frightened by something foreshadowed. If by Marketplace ¹ These positions sound like a bad thing, when Marketplace ² have great possibility of generating national employment and income.
Like this, Ciro Gomes leaves no doubt that he will not compromise with the oligopolized financial system that he sends and takes out in the country, as well as demonstrated - as he has already done in 1998 and 2002 - willing to ignore speculation in the interests of those who work and who produces . Scare, will not have. Everyone knows what interests a progressive should satisfy, especially when he announces it beforehand.
