Real News of the Day: Sarkozy threatens to walk out of G20 Summit


President Nicolas Sarkozy of France threatened to “leave an empty seat” at the G20 Summit if acceptable regulations of the United States financial market were not furnished by President Barack Obama.   French Minister of Finance Christine Lagarde said, “President Sarkozy was very clear on that front, he said if the deliverables are not there, I won’t sign the communique.  It means walking away. I think he’s very determined.”

Sarkozy has a hot wife.

Sarkozy has a hot wife.

This may be that test that Joe Biden referred to before the November election.  Sarkozy is apparently unsatisfied with the way blame has been assessed in the global economic crisis.  He believes that the United States should accept the lion’s share of the blame.

Additionally, Sarkozy demands that the United States impose stricter regulations on its financial markets.  This will include everything from banks to hedge funds.   According to Lagarde, the United States and the United Kingdom want to opt for stimulus packages rather than international regulatory agencies.  The French government, in particular, wants to examine offshore tax havens and the effects they are having on the global economy.

Paul Krugman can only do so much with his lambasting of current fiscal policy.  At the end of the day, he is just a man with a bit of a higher soapbox than the rest of us.  No real power.  But it’s reassuring to see someone like Sarkozy, who does have international respect and power, demand that the United States stop its stupid financial games.  Then again, this reeks of political grandstanding.  It reminds me of officials that demanded that human rights laws be added to NAFTA but then didn’t impose any repercussions for violating them.

We’ll find out soon enough.
