G 20 week

March 31, 2009

Dear readers. I am pleased to announce that I will not feel obliged to comment on the G20 meeting.  Politically a very symbolic moment, because it aims to boost cooperation in the current global crisis, and because it enlarges the group of top decision-makers in the world economy from 7 (the G7 was created during the last big crisis in the 1970s) to 20 (roughly the economies that are responsible for most of the world’s production and trade), there is much doubt on what it can actually achieve. Anyway, my colleagues at ECIPE are doing a terrific job there at commenting on the crisis and the G20 from a trade policy perspective. A new paper is due out (see here: pb09011); there’s loads in the press as you will see on our website, where you can also subscribe to our newsletter and above all find a link to the quite provocative blog we have launched recently.
