G20 Summit Discussions Full Steam Ahead to Rebuild World Economies
The leaders of the G20 summit are involved in intense talks as they try to steer the plethora of economic arguments into one unified position that will take immediate and positive action to help kick start the world’s economies.
The focus was on fundamental near to midterm objectives, with the main arguments involving whether to boost domestic production versus cutting costs through budgets. This slashing of budgets policy is seen by many as ultimately affecting millions and causing even further and prolonged hardship in the short to mid-term.
In many leaders eyes the financial crisis affecting the world has languished for too long in limbo and must be pushed towards a forced recovery cycle. It is time to work together and begin to stimulate each countries basic business fundamentals through policies that will gain consumer confidence and not further erode it.
The longer the world’s economies sit in this so called “stalled status” the more countries that will be affected, to the point where they will also need economic assistance. This has already started to play out in the EEC and is seen as another critical warning sign to get things moving.
The only position the members are in complete agreement on is that the world’s economy is still in a very fragile position and whatever steps are taken, must be taken carefully and very soon.
G20 Members have pointed out that Japan and Europe needed to do more to bolster their domestic demand, rather then just concentrate on cutting budgets in various public and private sectors. They still need to introduce policies to this effect that will bolster consumer confidence and thus raise domestic demand, such as has been happening in China.
The U.S. President Barack Obama maintains that stimulus measures should still be used as a positive contributor to forcing a financial economic recovery. The U.S. itself has been concentrating on boosting national savings and investment as one part of the overall process. This exact process was carried out by the Labor Government in Australia through massive stimulus packages and is attributed to their soft recession and apparent quicker recovery.
The world’s economy is slowly emerging from this latest financial crisis. It will take the worlds leaders to stay focused and united to see it stays the course.
