Ukraine Pandemic:TB and IMF loans connected ?

Could the so called "pandemic" in the Ukraine be connected to their dependence on IMF funds?

If the label "pandemic" is a cover for a major tuberculosis outbreak, as is discussed in this piece, Ukraine, WHO and the Geopolitics of Swine Flu Panic, there may well be a connection.

The latest news out of the Ukraine has the country reforming their entire 2010 budget to get even more money from the IMF. This certainly means more hardship for the Ukranian people.

But how is it that the IMF and Tuberculosis are connected?

Read this- Rise in TB Is Linked to Loans From I.M.F. The rapid rise in tuberculosis cases in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union is strongly associated with the receipt of loans from the International Monetary Fund

Critics of the fund have suggested that its financial requirements lead governments to reduce spending on health care to qualify for loans. This, the authors say, helps explain the connection.

Here is a link to the study

And here is the conclusion of the study

Conclusions

"IMF economic reform programs are associated with significantly worsened tuberculosis incidence, prevalence, and mortality rates in post-communist Eastern European and former Soviet countries, independent of other political, socioeconomic, demographic, and health changes in these countries. Future research should attempt to examine how IMF programs may have related to other non-tuberculosis–related health outcomes."


As lead author David Stuckler, research associate at Cambridge University, says with regards to the results of the studies correlation between IMF loans and tuberculosis increase.

“When you have one correlation, you raise an eyebrow,” Mr. Stuckler said. “But when you have more than 20 correlations pointing in the same direction, you start building a strong case for causality.”

  1. I sit the decrease in health care spending or is it the IMF contracting organizations such as NATO and other air forces to actually poison the atmosphere where these people like.

    Our armies and police, etc are all privately owned organizations.

  3. Hey doug, according to the study it is the decrease in health care spending, that has to be done, to qualify for IMF loans that leads to the increase in Tuberculosis.

    Don't worry about the booboos.

  4. I have no idea how you have the time for this, Penny . . . seriously, all the digging for us is appreciated.

    No time to comment on all the info, other than thanks, and please keep it up!

  5. Hmm... a correlation between IMF loans and the incidence of TB, eh? Interesting. I wonder if there's any correlation between CFR and Bilderberger declarations that the ideal world population would be 500M and, I don't know... every mass-death event since?

  6. The IMF's main job is to de-value sovereign currencies. One of the ways it does this is that when loaning money to nations that are in a bind, it imposes strict regulation on how that money is spent. Often the cut-backs a nation needs to make is in education and healthcare... There's your link to TB. There is though, a much more sinister death blow to nations that need to turn to the IMF, and that's that they get into a spiral of 'having' to accept foreign imports whilst at the same time losing their ability to export (with the dictate that foreign companies come in to manage any valuable assets)

    They're a fucking sick bunch, the IMF.

    Just look at what they did to Jamaica. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YoIJPwfsbqg or do a search for "life & debt"

  7. "They're a fucking sick bunch, the IMF."

    I've used that exact phrase in describing some of the corrupt organizations in society. The IMF certainly ranks as #1 in this regard.

    They tie the #1 spot with lawyers and the legal profession in North America and Britain (as well as others) who just lock people up for profit.

    I bet Confessions of an Economic Hit Man will be required reading in schools if we ever get out of this.

  8. "Hey doug, according to the study it is the decrease in health care spending, that has to be done, to qualify for IMF loans that leads to the increase in Tuberculosis."

    I read that study- that is a suggestion, but with low level spraying we are hearing about and the sudden numbers, I wonder.

    good question and undoubtedly there may be some

  11. Edo:

    Not only do they have to accept imports, the countries have to export even if their people are starving, wasn't their something a while back about rice, and some country, they are a rice exporter but the price was so high the people were going hungry.

    They kept some rice back to feed the hungry which annoyed the IMf, but hey it fed the people and likely saved the political neck of the leadership.

    I believe Mexico has some similar problems don't know if they are IMF connected but the people cannot access water to grow food for themselves because it must be diverted to the massive farms that grow food for export, isn't that crazy?

  12. doug; economic hit man, god I still haven't got around to that one yet....

    Engdhal talks about the spraying that was reported, but says there is not enough info on it.

    I think his theory on a super strain or two of tuberculosis is the most credible I have heard yet, and thinking of the IMF as the "world banker" and the WHO as the "world doctor" they would have good reasons to cover up the maladies one brings on to the world.

  13. Did you finish The Money Masters Penny ?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Yes, but I want to re watch about the last 20 to 30 minutes where he lays out the solutions to ridding ourselves of the private banks, I didn't quite understand everything he was saying...

  15. Hey Penny, don't forget the corn problem in Mexico. Due to NAFTA the cost of importing corn from the US, because of the subsidies makes it cheaper for the Mexicans to buy than locally produced landrace corn. So the problem now is that all the stores of the landrace have been contaminated with GM corn from the US.

    Sorry that has nothing to do with TB, though I wouldn't be surprised if the rate of TB has risin in Mexico.

    This is partly about destroying any middle class from developing in these nations, as well as reducing and ultimately wiping out the middle classes within all of NA.

    They have some good ideas, but its a complex problem. I think the most important thing to understand is the current system first. The Money Masters scratches the surface of what has gone wrong and why.

    Ultimately what they say cannot hold as true as it stands. Any society must have the "mandate from heaven" (as Catharine Austin Fitts points out). I have said "foundation of (common) ethics". Our system has that but its difficult to understand.

    I like the Canadian Action Party position on money, more similar to Kucinich than Ron Paul.

    I'm not a fan of the gold standard - "they" own all the gold !

    Catherine Austin Fitts is probably the most interesting source on all this. She was on Jones on Wednesday of this week.
