The biggest nation in the world

The ALBA , created by Fidel and Chávez in Havana in December of 2004, contains until today to 9 nations, in an appreciable block, with a superior population to the 75 million inhabitants who are not welcomed to an alliance based on laws of the Market, but in the solidarity and the mutual benefit.

As test of it are executed more than a hundred programs in sectors like the health, the education, the energy, the agriculture, the feeding, the mining, the industry, the finances and the telecommunications, among others.

Decisive steps are the creation of the ALBA Bank, with headquarters in Caracas, important for the financial support of the economic and social objectives, and the appointment of the SUCRE (for the time being virtual currency) that will substitute to the dollar in the transactions among the countries members.

Other achievements are the creation of economic groupings in trade and investments, the construction of refineries, electric plants and other industries. Bolivia, for example, would guarantee the supply of gas to all the South American countries.

A simple calculation hurtles like balance the biggest and fairrer exchange among the nations, more development starting from concrete programs, and mainly, more labor sites, in contrast with reports of the International Organization of the Work that report the sustained growth of the unemployment, even in highly developed countries.

The data place the world figure in about 2l0 million people without work, or what is same, without sustenance.

And while Japan, a commercial and technological power, recognized that faces the worst economic crisis from the Second World War, nations that gradually leave of the Neo-liberal pattern come to recover although discreetly its economies. Argentina, for example, reached in the ends of 2009 a favorable balance between the imports and the exports, while 36% of the purchases carried out them in the mark of MERCOSUR.

Leaders of the continent, as Venezuela, enlarge their commercial pitch toward other geographical areas. Caracas established 29 agreements recently with China, in sectors like the energy , the agriculture and the mining, for only to mention some.

With measured and firm step, the creation and acting of the ALBA begins to sum up the dreams of Martí and of Bolívar, of creating a single and big America, "the biggest nation in the world", as the Liberator called it.
