Talk to Al Jazeera – Lagarde’s call to action: Oil, taxes and GCC challenges


Al Jazeera English

Published on Nov 14, 2015

Global oil prices have dropped sharply over the past year, leading to significant revenue shortfalls in many energy exporting nations – and according to experts there is no end in sight.Oil and gas producing countries in the Gulf region are struggling to keep their income and expenses in balance.If they do not adapt to the oil price drop and seek alternatives, countries like Saudi Arabia could run out of buffers in just five years, warns the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in a recent report.

“The price of oil has sharply declined in the last 12 months and… we do not see a significant improvement in the near term. So as a result of the new reality, we believe that finance ministers and authorities should take steps in the spending site of their budget, in the revenue site of their budget, and they should also welcome private sector operators in order to create growth from alternative sources,” said Christine Lagarde, the head of the IMF.Lagarde travelled to the Gulf countries to deliver this message in person, meeting both, leaders and the younger generation in order to raise awareness and to offer solutions.

One of them involves the imposition of what might have been difficult to imagine just a few months ago: taxes.”When you are running out of money, you don’t have many options. You need to cut expenses or look for other income – or both,” Lagarde said.But aside from the issue of oil prices, there are many other critical issues facing the global economy and thereby the IMF.Christine Lagarde, the head of the International Monetary Fund, talks to Al Jazeera about the future of the GCC economies, Europe’s refugee crisis, the continuing financial problems in Greece, and the rising power of China. She also talks about inspiring women across the globe and her career – will she run for president in France’s next presidential elections?

Press For Truth

Published on Sep 10, 2015

On the tenth anniversary of the Attacks of September 11th, 2001, expert witnesses gathered at Ryerson University in Toronto, Canada to provide evidence-based research that called into question the official story of 9/11. This was known as The Toronto Hearings on 9/11.

Over a period of four days, these experts in Structural Engineering, Physics, Chemistry, and History gave researched and professional testimony to an international panel of distinguished judges. The panel of judges, in conjunction with the steering committee would go on to publish their final analysis of the evidence provided, which called for a new investigation into the Attacks of September 11th, 2001.

This film is a summary of the strongest evidence given over the four days of hearings. To see the hearings in their entirety please visit http://torontohearings.org/ or read the final report available on the aforementioned website.
