G20 Gathering Will Look at Trade and Currencies

“The risk that exchange-rate battles will harm the fragile global economy was the top policy concern as world finance ministers begin a multiday meeting this week. It’s an issue that pits the United States prominently against China, but that also is stirring anxiety among other nations in the Group of 20, which gathered for talks Thursday in Gyeongju, South Korea. A key problem is that many G20 nations view exports as a central strategy for growing jobs amid a tepid world economy.” (Christian Science Monitor)

When the G20 get together no one’s life, liberty, or property is safe.
