“Unequal exchange and the worst economic relations are imposed by the capitalist powers upon a large part of the peoples of the world.  These realities impose upon our revolutionary peoples the necessity and the duty to fight united in order to accelerate the end of such inhuman circumstances that typify what Karl Marx described as the pre-history of human society.”

“In these crucial years, the most powerful capitalist power having the most resources in all times has permitted itself the luxury of living like a parasite off the savings of the rest of the world which has not only seen itself forced to finance its fiscal and trade deficit as never before, but also an arms race without parallel in history.”

"(...) that everything that today contributes to underdevelopment and poverty is tantamount to a flagrant attack on the ecology. As a result, tens of millions of men, women and children perish every year in the Third World, far more than in each of the two world wars. The unequal terms of trade, protectionism and the foreign debt are also an assault on the ecology and facilitate the destruction of the environment".

“It is worthwhile indicating that the main responsibility for the brutal destruction of the environment lies with the consumer societies. They are the offspring of the old colonial metropolises and of imperialist policies that also begot the poverty and backwardness which are today the scourge of the overwhelming majority of humanity.”

“For super-developed societies, the problem is not growth but distribution, and not only distribution amongst themselves, but distribution among all of them.  The sustainable growth we are talking about is impossible without a more just distribution among all countries.”

“Despite so much euphoria no one can be sure of how long the United States economic system, ruled by the blind laws of the market economy, will be able to prevent a financial meltdown. There are no economic miracles.”
