NUSA DUA (BALI) – Wide-ranging reforms are needed to reset the global financial system and make it work amid turbulent times, an international panel of top economists and leaders said on Friday (Oct 12).

The Group of 20 (G-20) Eminent Persons Group on Global Financial Governance, in a report issued at the annual meetings of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank, underlined that the open and competitive world order of the past 70 years has lifted many out of poverty and fostered unprecedented peace.

But the system of international governance and cooperation that underpins it is fraying, and there is a real risk of drift into a fragmented world, in which all nations would end up losing, it said.

“There is no going back to the old multilateralism. There is no single conductor. There are already many more orchestras in play,” said the panel. “The world needs a new harmony.”

RVAlready:  Jersey, that was a good overview, from an IMF and WB authorized think tank, of the reasons for the GCR.


RVAlready:  I am feeling pretty good about the RV at the moment. Hope they can get it out the door this time

JCNoble:  It would seem with Iraq constitution date of Nov 2 and Iran sanction date of Nov 4, the 1st week of Nov is the next back wall. Hope this is it.

RVAlready:  I think they are trying for the RV this week. We would have had it yesterday, but Washington stopped it…I just feel like they may have removed the last roadblock

Mangelo:  If there was a check list, a lot of things have been checked off……imo that’s why I say it’s very close now…

EJ:  this is just my opinion , but i think that the U S has always been the hold up. not Iraq …. Even if the new PM seats the Gov. The U S still has to release it.

AtLast51:  Great article Tish… can anyone tell me weather this Parliment meeting is to vote on the formation of the government or just talk about the names on the cabinet list. Can’t tell if this is the meeting to scheudle the meeting… smh

Doetracker:  Atlast. The second part says they formation of the government will be announced with in 72 hours and that is after he has presented the names so I think if true it’s done deal with the announcement
