G20 – The Afterthoughts

So, was it worth it. The guy killed at Bank, the lousy branch of RBS (I swear the journalists outnumbered the protesters) and one of the few times I have seen our beloved sovereign smile (she does not even do that for a £50 note!). The world is going to get better, $1 Trillion times better.

I have not read the details, I am far too tired to do so, so I am not going to talk about it directly. But I will ask two questions. Will it work? Was it worth the hassle to get that $1,000,000,000,000?

For those readers in their twenties, we are probably going to loose this decade to a Depression. Just like the 1930’s hosted a lost generation, and the 1940’s were lost to war, it is now the same for us. We’ve had a good time earlier this century, but they are fond memories…

One thing good to come out of all of this. Unlike the last time there was a ‘G’ meeting in the UK, at least nothing was blown up. Thank goodness for that. You see, I am not entirely ungrateful to the police…

One response to “G20 – The Afterthoughts

  1. There were some interesting outcomes. The expansion of the IMF was certainly much needed. But the lack of results on poverty and climate change was disappointing.
