From Wall Street to Main Street, leaders address crisis

The G-20 representatives gathered in Washington D.C. this weekend seeking an emergency response to the global economic crisis. The accomplishments of the meeting have been described as “decisive change,” “more of the same” and everything in between.

Jagdish Bhagwati, senior fellow for international economics at the Council on Foreign Relations, speaks with Martin Savidge about the meeting’s accomplishments. They discuss the possibilities of a forthcoming G-20 meeting with Barack Obama in office and The Wall Street Journal’s assertion that the economic plan could prove problematic.
