2:03 am
you know you're watching r t we're broadcasting live from moscow welcome to the program the top story now protests have raged across europe over government austerity measures with populations and good that they're having to pay for others' mistakes meanwhile americans facing similar struggles have shown very little passion compared to the displayed overseas takes a while europeans are doing better at trying to protect their pockets. it's october two thousand and ten and while things aren't looking too good americans and europeans have reacted to the tough times very differently about this story unfortunately you can't tell from this but only with mass struggle can there be a positive development for the benefit of foreigners or for us to try to make sure a country maintains their liberty in the freedom that you had in the past. countries across the globe are facing one of the worst economic disasters in recent
2:04 am
history fourteen million americans are unemployed one in five people in the united kingdom is living in poverty and more than twenty percent of spain's population can't find work more on equal your society gets the more unequal it usually continues to get because when inequality reaches anything like the levels we see in america now the sheer amount of wealth and income in the hands of the very wealthy mean they can begin to buy political parties they can buy whole segments of the house and senate so now world leaders have to decide what to cut and what to keep we've identified substantial savings and in the days and weeks ahead we will continue going through the budget line by line and will identify more than one hundred programs that will be cut or eliminated but it looks like our friends in europe might be one step ahead of us tens of thousands of europeans stormed brussels the location of the headquarters of the european union in response to news participating governments would be fined if they ran up deficits. especially for
2:05 am
countries with debts even more pressure on budget cuts and this means cuts in social area and the public. infrastructure and the crisis will end up being paid for by the workers the news that more jobs will be cut pensions frozen and wages lowered fired up the masses there are austerity measures going on in europe and the europeans are pushing back really hard the consequence of those is going to be to reduce the european lifestyle but there they're coming no nowhere close to the absolute destruction of middle class that we're seeing. so why haven't americans taken to the streets over this country's unsettling economic statistics yes we have the tea partiers and the new wave of progressives who have been rallying in response to the tea partiers but many say these americans seem more concerned with getting their theoretical freedoms back rather than specific benefits like wages and retirement funds like what's happening over in europe so i think americans and europeans are in the street what's kind of very odd is americans are in the street
2:06 am
asking for less government help because they've given up on the government and the europeans are in the street asking for more government help because they still believe their situation to be made better by social spending. so what's the solution while many say the united states should look at our good friend the united kingdom that's proposed to cut its military spending by one fifth while some americans believe now is not a good time to decrease funding for social programs some say the u.s. is an enormous military budget of five hundred thirty three billion dollars it is the only logical place to make a cut but others say even though it might be a good idea it's not going to happen any time soon the problem is that because our politics are corporate owned in the united states going to the defense budget which is mostly outsourced to defense contractors and saying we're going to cut into that it's not going to happen preassure either our t. washington d.c. american economist richard wolfe says it's the historical decline of left wing in
2:07 am
the us that means those struggling and i know that without a voice. it's the decision of the europeans to overcome all of their differences their different cultures and languages in a common struggle against these austerity programs i think in europe for the last thirty years you've had a pretty vibrant trade union movement compared to what we have in this country you have active socialist communist and other radical organizations that analyze what's going on in an ongoing way with daily newspapers and daily of media outlets you have an educated population that can see these issues i think american cv issues but have no organized the basis after the long term decline of our labor movement and our left organizations so it's taking longer in the united states to mobilize because we have to organize from scratch these kinds of groupings and unities the
2:08 am
europeans could rely on their tradition and put them into play much more quickly the europeans are ahead of us they have a clear vision and they have the organizations that clearly can mobilize millions of people in strikes general strikes and manifestations that force the change to put the cost of this crisis on the capitalist enterprises who are most responsible for producing it. or social unrest in europe means it's now decision time for some countries of the eurozone that's according to john redwood a british m.p. and euro skeptic he gave an interview to our team with the full version coming your way in just over twenty minutes time but here's a pretty. i think it's up to the current member states of the euro to come to political conclusions democratic conclusions about how much pain individual countries are prepared to put up with to stay in it whether they can reach a better global settlement within the euro zone which perhaps releases

a bit of the tension and pressure on spain and portugal and greece and ireland without completely upset in germany. moscow is the biggest city in continental europe and hence faces huge daily challenges over five and a half million tons of waste is produced annually in the capital but only a small portion of it is recycled as artie's york reports it's a problem that's not so easy to bury. when alexander and his family moved to their flat ten years ago that you from the thirteenth floor it was so impressive the whole city early before them but soon this hump turned into a hill blocking the view of the whole district it became so big they thought it was a new ski resort but instead it turned out to be a mountain of waste but afterward i was shocked i have children someday they'll have kids as well how will they be able to live here if these mine tunes continue
2:10 am
growing if nothing is sinful city will be surrounded by them this is how it works first a giant pit is dug in the ground the waste is distributed in isolated layers eventually creating on the surface dock sick water is drained away from go and gases are taken away by specially designed wipes authorities insist the technology is eco friendly but let's face it it leaves a stinky present for future generations. i was actually walking on top of around thirteen million tons of trash interestingly at the moment the so-called seasonal so well here is off watermelons which people for all weigh them off this time of year trucks come and go every minute while monster ball those are flattening the waste into where and at the end all of this is going to walk like an ordinary hill just like that green area over there. moscow annually produces at least five and a half million tons of waste waste which has to be collected and either destroyed
2:11 am
recycled or disposed off the state company responsible for that owns two huge pits wheezed burning factories and sorting stations but still it's only able to recycle fifteen percent of the waste it collects most of the trash which could be recycled is rude during the transportation to sorting stations garbage trucks press ways to collect more so everything is really mixed together that's why we recycle so little in the end. to prevent two ways to being mixed up in meat and recycle last year the city distributed separate bins enabling moscowitz to sort their garbage as the threw it away but the economic crisis hit and there wasn't enough money to send separate trucks dedicated to be going up just blasting people which were all mixed up anyway so the experiment was trashed this is money which is being thrown away most of the waste which could be used as lost the whole system needs to be changed
2:12 am
or do cordial consequences could be devastating so until the russian capital gets its recycling act together millions of tons of waste will continue to be hidden from sight to be for future generations to deal with tomorrow you got this kind of r g moscow so to come this hour in a skate from the vices of life our team visits every boat school in ukraine's crimea that's helping hundreds of young people fight drug addiction by taking them back to nature. a time courtis sect to consider a second set of charges against alleged russian arms dealer viktor bent the court rejected a request to have them dropped did they traditionally the u.s. where he's wanted on terrorism related charges if any head of the rio news agency here in bangkok takes us through the case. america's attempts to get its hands on an alleged russian arms dealer victor boot stalled again on monday banks criminal
2:13 am
courts rejected those requests to draw up and second set of charges against a jailed businessman prisoner waiting extradition to the united states monday's hearing was hampered by security related changes in the schedule one closed door meetings of the panel of judges and the absence of the russian interpreter from the courts and minister to office simply for guts to invite on tuesday liberal judges will decide on the second extradition request a real stance based on charges of money laundering and fraud without hearing any witnesses from either side but they say without the witness testimony it is not going to be a lengthy second trial return boots was arrested in thailand in bangkok in march two thousand and eight in a us news on this sting operation problems criminal court initially clear who told all charges but enormous this year the appeal court reversed of the ruling paving the way for her to be extradited to the united states but washington's
2:14 am
a precautionary gamble of filing a new charges in case they lost the appeal now stands in the way of the businessman himself who repeatedly denies any wrongdoing and says that the charges against him are politically motivated meanwhile moscow is calling for a just and fair trial of a russian citizen on the thai soil. the wife of victim believes the u.s. is preparing to force her husband to give the testimony they need it comes as a u.s. aircraft carrier arrived in bangkok for the first time ever she says it's no coincidence only wasn't a very unstable picture it's quite possible the extradite him and just look him up on some aircraft carrier and force him to give whatever testimony the u.s. wants him to give i think he'll go as far as it takes to get it and i'm sure everyone understands their plane to france to do it these days starting with chemical sense psychological pressure. and goodman is a publisher specializing in investigative writing. to boot is stuck in
2:15 am
a high stakes game and these are lucky to get a fair trial in the u.s. . i think the thailand tiger government is kind of stuck between a rock and a hard place obviously they're being played in as just pieces in an international game between russia and america. but they don't want to seem as if they were pressured by america even though they have been. there waiting for this whole thing to play out all the way through the courts and on course it was america's own fault for adding keeping extra charges on one sleeve the original charges were deemed by the thai court to be political in nature and there wasn't even a minimal amount of evidence to convict on anything but america has promised thailand's fighter jets and cheap oil if the decision goes their way if he's next great to america and stands trial in america itself i think then. everything will be in public but probably what might happen is that they would like to extradite him but not have them face trial in america but being in

hello and welcome to our business program it's good to have you with us this hour and we start with our top story for prices continue to drive up inflation after the summer drought it reach zero point eight percent in september pushing the annual inflation rate to seven percent so far there are concerns that consumer prices will grow above official forecast this year september growth was driven mainly by. food prices in particular it relates to buckwheat and eggs and the price of eggs jumped around thirty percent and more than fifty russian regions. turning to currencies now the ruble is likely high against the dollar but is tipped against the euro the strong oil prices is supporting the ruble but has not given it much of a pullback of his b.c. expects the russian cards to remain stable in the near term. the market was a little bit spooked by some of the trade in the balance of payments data which came out of russia and it helped push the ruble
2:23 am
a little bit lower but that said we think it's going to trade relatively stable versus the basket at least for the next the next few months will really come to realize over the last few months that you know the euro was excessively sold by the market particularly back in may and i think we've come to realize that that was a bit too excessive and that's been a winding and why the year was partly holding up is because by default it's not by merit to go if you say there's a lot of bad things going on in the eurozone and i think really you have to say to yourself the the fed is on the cusp of doing more quantitative easing but the e.c.b. is not going to and that's again the key reason why the euro is holding up reasonably well at present. let's take a look at how the markets are forming asian markets that make this out you found stocks to the bank of japan cut benchmark interest rate and pledge to expand the balance sheet by sixty billion dollars to shore up the nation's slowing economic recovery hong kong shares are trading forty four percent lower and here in moscow reality has opened lower on tuesday on monday the mines extended in the black
