Economic recession: Elizabeth Warren's Bank


AUB President Elizabeth Warren

The Bank's President was selected by a vote in the AU shortly after it's creation, Professor Elizabeth Warren became President but under heavy fire from those on the right that the Bank's President should be centrist, which Warren was considerably not. She was approved by a slim majority 380-370 and those on the right said she would fail the AU. She oversaw new AU regulations and the creation of a currency adopted by five member states, New England, Acadia, Quebec, Polar Republic and Pacifica. During a global reccession her economic outlook and push for regulation in even conservative countries have showed that AU countries were more ready to face the recession that other global countries. Unemployment rates and debt both raised but compared to other countries the AU stayed strong and were able to institute new financial reforms. During the recession the AUB set up the AUB Foreign Fund which was able to lend money to other struggling nations at high interest rates. About 4.8 million was sent to the United Kingdom, with 10% interest due 2020, the deal was officially signed by Gordon Brown and AU President Barack Obama, the other .2 million was sent to Ireland with 15% interest due 2016. In 2011 Elizabeth Warren stated that the "AU recession was over" and that "countries should prosper and join together to solve problems.

Elizabeth Warren will step down as AUB Preisdent in 2014, after filling out the maximum of a eight year term, Warren has said she will join New England politics afterwards. Warrenism is a sort of ideology that through cooperation, progressivism, but the powers of the AU kept at bay could lead to a prosperous continent. The Ideology, in theory was already accepted in leftest ideologies but gave it more credibility. Warrenism contrasts Contiscepticism, which thinks through reduced AU presence will lead to prosperity and is held in more conservative ideologies.

Staticistics done by the AUB and AU Financial Cabinet

The AUB, economic MAPs from the AU Financial Cabinet and the AU Financial Secretary, currently Bill Clinton, are responsible for putting out yearly numbers and compiling different statistics, which works cooperatively with the respective nations and economists from the World Bank. Apart of the AU budget is working cooperatively with the federal governmenments to gather monthly unemployment numbers, and do a Continential Census every eight years. The AUB also puts out yearly rankings and findings on "Economic Stablity", which ranks different areas of the financial sector, and "Public Debt" among AU nations.

The AUB says any rating for those countries that has better than a B - in any category is a good/great rating. California which has strict regulations, has a B ranking which came under critism due to the high unemployment rate and bad conditions. California also racked up the worse rankings, with an average of a B Economic Stability, the worst unemployment rate, and the most public debt.
