They Just Don’t Get It #6: The Global Economic Summmit

22 Oct 2008, by Guest in Economics

So the global economic summit designed to rethink the world’s financial architecture is going to happen in Washington next month.  The White House said it will be an important opportunity for world leaders to

enhance their commitment to open, competitive economies, as well as trade and investment liberalisation.

Investment liberalisation!?  Isn’t that the problem?  Surely if this meeting should be about anything, it should be about investment regulation not liberalisation.  Let’s hope whoever takes over at the White House does get it.
