The G-20 and the Future of the Global Economy

Hosted by

As the old G-7 becomes the G-20, there's talk of economic "recovery," but good times may be limited to the financial industry. In the so-called "jobless recovery," millions of people still can't make ends meet, and protesters in the streets of Pittsburgh claim Wall Street is running the government. Even some market fundamentalists say they're right.  Are the same people who presided over one disaster in charge of preventing another? Will the G-20 approve new regulations to crack down on excessive risk that endangers the world economy?
