September 24, 2008 — The current worldwide financial crisis has been caused largely by policies of privatization of basic public resources, Bolivian President Evo Morales Ayma has told the General Assembly's annual high-level debate.
Speaking last night before world leaders at UN Headquarters in New York, Mr. Morales said the annual debate was taking place at a time of rebellion by peoples against the existing economic order.
"This is a rebellion against misery and poverty; against the effects of climate change; a rebellion against the privatization policies which is what has caused the financial crisis," he said. . .
