Prioritization of global problems and the failure of G 20 format.

Every country and economy has the right to be listened. Ecuador does not have much expectations about the G 20 summit. Basically because although it represents almost 85% of the GDP of the world, the 20 nations represented in the forum, do not share most of the desires, problems and issues of more than 190 economies that conform the rest of the world.

In addition Ecuador does not believe that Mexico, Brazil or Argentina represent Latin America’s interests. Brazil does not share a Latin American history, language and regional economic goals. It could be considered as part of South America but not part of Latin America. In the case of Argentina, this country looks Latin American countries as markets, but not as regional partners and in the case of Mexico the economy is more likely to share views with NAFTA rather than with Latin American concerns

In This sense, Ecuador does not believe in the effectiveness of the G 20 as other small “ clubs” where major economies get together just to discuss without true representation and neither prioritization of global issues in terms of cost benefits analysis and budgets constraints. The Ecuadorian point of view of these kinds of forums is that at end, results are too broad and do not end with an accurate action plan to improve life conditions worldwide. It is true that to get together to discuss is always good, however it could be done using statistics models and technology that could be easier and more cost effective. Governments, Universities and Private sectors of major economies could share views of important issues using ITC technology rather to have expensive assemblies that usually will not bring any accurate result. Summits should be used to compromise political will of pre discussed agreements.

The position of Ecuador could be more likely inside of the Copenhagen consensus where priorities and cost benefits analysis are more important that just discussions. In general terms Ecuador agreed that the world must focus its efforts to make big good rather than small good. Just like the efforts to improve climate change that is too expensive and make a little difference. As the Copenhagen consensus suggest, the world should set its priorities and basically we agree that efforts must be made in infrastructure for poor people, malaria control, Aids prevention and trade ( end of EU and USA subsidies) to put the world as soon as possible into an era of global growth with reduction of inequality. These priorities came from the 30 best economists of the world focused in world priorities.

Just like Dr Hans Rosling predicts in his statistics models, using existed data from international institutions, all world will catch up in terms of economy however to speed up this trend will depend on set goals, use global economy resources in the right way, have political will and develop the right green technology to have relatively cheap energy to move towards an new era of prosperity and growth.

G20 summit at the end, does not contributes to make a big change, does not have a big impact for a truly global improvement and will end as always with a nice picture of 20 leaders that have power but not the view to make things better.
