They just don’t get it: demonstrate against CBI fight back on G20

11 Mar 2009, by in Economics

The CBI has entered the G20 fight by publicly opposing a crackdown on tax havens and bank bonuses. They are calling for corporate greed to be ignored so world leaders can concentrate on sorting out the mess that corporate greed caused.So now we know where the battle lines over the G20 will be drawn – do we put profits first, or people? If you want to put people first, come on the March for Jobs, Justice, Climate on 28 March.

Martin Broughton, CBI President and chairman of British Airways, told the Financial Times today that the London Summit on 2 April should focus on a global stimulus and opposing protectionism. But it needs to do more. Tackling tax havens and bank bonuses, as well as global poverty and climate change, would be a crucial signal that the G20 is serious about going beyond mere sticking plaster, business as usual measures.
