Economic protests and strikes petition France’s government

Across the world, the global economic crisis is causing frustration, anger and vigorous debates over how far governments should go in stimulating their economies.

The U.S. has witnessed frustration over the government’s huge bailout of American International Group (AIG) — whereas France saw a wave of protests and strikes aimed at getting the government to do more to ease the deepening crisis.

John Authers, the investment editor of the Financial Times, joins Martin Savidge to discuss growing anger, next month’s G-20 talks and if the European Union will be able to come up with a unified position.
