The Bank for International Settlements – https://www.bis.org/ The Bank for International Settlements (BIS) is the world’s oldest international financial organisation. The BIS has 60 member central banks, representing countries from around the world that together make up about 95% of world GDP. The International Monetary Fund – http://www.imf.org/external/ The IMF’s primary purpose is to ensure the stability of the international monetary system—the system of exchange rates and international payments that enables countries (and their citizens) to transact with each other. The Fund’s mandate was updated in 2012 to include all macroeconomic and financial sector issues that bear on global stability.

Together, IBRD and IDA make up the World Bank. The International Finance Corporation The International Finance Corporation (IFC) is the largest global development institution focused exclusively on the private sector. We help developing countries achieve sustainable growth by financing investment, mobilizing capital in international financial markets, and providing advisory services to businesses and governments.

FerroGreen Power Pact, the FGPP. The FGPP is the special interest group of folks that are wanting to stay on top of what is happening in the world of Green Energy Technologies. April 6, 2014 — (TRN) — Americans are guilt-tripped over driving “gas-guzzler” vehicles, but it turns out that our own government is preventing ultra-high-mileage vehicles from being sold here; even though some are BUILT here! With mileages of 50 MPG, 75 MPG, 180 MPG and even 300 MPG, the government says these vehicles “don’t meet American standards” but they’re  fine for Europe — which has standards even higher than the US.  The real reason these vehicles cannot be sold in the USA is money: if Americans were allowed to buy these high-mileage vehicles, the government wouldn’t get as much money from fuel taxes as they get now and their oil company campaign donors would lose billions in profits.   So who makes these super-high-mileage cars?  BMW, Toyota, Nissan, Volkswagen.   Now read more to find out what the rest of the world can have, but we Americans cannot. . . The following report is intended to be a wake up call for the American people. There are no tricks here, such as quoting imperial gallons, referencing tiny cars, electric cars, or even hybrids. These cars are straight up 50 plus mile per gallon winners which are banned for sale in the U.S. If you think you can bring one home, think again. In America such cars are allowed a 30 day visit upon crossing the border, after which if they are found on American soil they get impounded and if not immediately shipped out of the country thereafter they are destroyed. The U.S. government quotes as a reason for such behavior that said cars are “not up to American standards”. But what about Europe, where they are allowed? European standards are every bit as high as American standards, (BMW vs Ford) but by a simple declaration from the government, the American people turn their nose and say if it is not up to American standards we do not want it here. Yet under all of this is a damning reality – there is nothing wrong with these cars other than the fact that they are too efficient and will reduce corporate profits as a result. Lets get started With a combined mileage of 52.8 U.S. mpg and an even higher highway mpg, the Urban Cruiser SUVcrossover by (more…)
