And you were the first international leader I met as Chief Minister.
In 2000, you made your first visit to India when Atal Bihari Vajpayee was Prime Minister.On Monday 21st May 2018, at unusually short notice, the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, paid a working visit to Sochi, Russia, to meet with the Russian President, Vladimir Putin.There were pressing geopolitical issues to discuss, as well as the detail of several bilateral matters.(9) Under the gold standard through 1913 the United States economy grew at an annual average of 4%, one third larger than the growth rate since then and twice the level since 2000.(10) The international gold exchange standard from 1914 to 1971 did not provide for a United States dollar convertible into gold, and therefore helped cause the Great Depression and stagflation. During the 30-month period following the date of enactment of this Act, the United States Government shall take timely and reasonable steps to disclose all of its holdings of gold, together with a contemporaneous report of any United States governmental purchases or sales, thus enhancing the ability of the market and of market participants to arrive at the fixed dollar-gold parity in an orderly fashion. There have been important scientific advances recently.Mr President, we work together at international organisations, such as the SCO. The problem of the American national bankruptcy will be moved closer to a benevolent and lasting solution when Washington determines to return to sound money.You played a key role in granting India full membership in the SCO and BRICS, the Conference on Interaction and Confidence-Building Measures in Asia (CICA), as well as in such mechanisms as the North-South International Transport Corridor. The current unsound at the US Federal Reserve is manifestly unfit for purpose.(5) Between 20, United States manufacturing employment shrunk by one third after holding steady for 30 years at nearly 20,000,000 jobs.(6) The American economy needs a stable dollar, fixed exchange rates, and money supply controlled by the market not the government.(3) American families need long-term price stability to meet their household spending needs, save money, and plan for retirement.(4) The Federal Reserve policy of long-term inflation has made American manufacturing uncompetitive, raising the cost of United States manufactured goods by more than 40% since 2000, compared to less than 20% in Germany and France.
