"Central bankers in some of the big emerging markets, such as India’s Raghuram Rajan, have hit out at selfish policies pursued by the US and developed countries that claiming they lead to turmoil in their countries.

But there was no major shift in position on the issue with ministers merely reiterating their commitment for monetary policy among G20 members to be “carefully calibrated and clearly communicated”.

The G20 combines the biggest industrialised and developing countries, which account for about 85 per cent of the global economy. Since the financial crisis struck in 2008 it has become the premier troubleshooter, although its effectiveness has been questioned by participants as the crisis recedes.

The setting of a numerical target for future growth represents a change of strategy at G20 level, which has previously rejected setting hard targets, for example on fiscal adjustments.

But amid scepticism from Germany, the European Central Bank and some other participants the growth target remains largely aspirational with no details on what reforms would be implemented or penalties for failing to achieve the target.

“It is kind of ambitious to set a numerical target for the whole world, well the G20 world,” said Mario Draghi, ECB governor. However, he welcomed the broad thrust of the G20 to target economic growth.

Leaders from G20 countries are expected to outline what reforms they expect to implement to achieve the growth target when they meet in November in Australia, which is chairing the G20 this year.

Ministers said they welcomed the recent signs of improvement in the global economy. But they warned in the communiqué there was no room for complacency as the world economy still faced weakness in some areas of demand and volatility in financial markets and high levels of debt while global imbalances highlighted that important challenges remained.

The meeting in Sydney marked the debut of Janet Yellen, the chairwoman of the US Federal Reserve, at the G20. Sources said she faced criticism from India, among others, over the destabilising impact that the Fed’s decision to taper its quantitative easing programme is having on some developing countries.

The final G20 communiqué reiterated the need for maintaining communication between central banks and for them to be “mindful of impacts on the global economy” when setting monetary policy." I find the comment by India amusing. Who do you talk to when you need tech support? Why should a decision made in the US impact India? Why can't they negotiate trade agreements that work for India and whoever they do business?

We are talking about the $4500 per student tax money North Carolina has collected from its subjects. Using NC tax money to support Greensboro Islamic Academy is not a constitutionally allowed use for tax money. Neither is using NC tax money to support Raleigh Christian Academy, a Baptist Church school which excludes Mormons, Jehovah Witnesses, Unitarian Universalist , Christian Scientist and many others persons who believe in religious organizations that Baptist consider cults. Republikan legislators passing legislation allowing charter schools to collect the state money at the beginning of the year for each student, by persons not having had a criminal background check and having no education themselves is just outright stupidity. Right now one of those charters is dumping all their students back into the public schools because--sheezam--all the money is gone. The founder of the school was on probation for guess what? Falsifying documents to obtain state money illegally.
Wouldn't it make sense to check these things out before giving these operators millions at the beginning of the school year? Do we really need to be forcing citizens to pay taxes to support Islamic academy's, Baptist academy's, Mormon academy's, Zen Buddhist academy's, etc.?
Aside from the unconstitutionality of the charter school mess being swept under the rug, it just doesn't make any sense.

Very good point. Suppose the engine quits at 5000 feet in a single engine plane over mountainous terrain. We are going to crash, but its better to crash under control at low speed than to just do nothing and crash out of control at high speed. At low speed and with control, we at least have a chance. So do we make an attempt to survive or do we just throw up our hands and wait to have ourselves picked up with a stick and a spoon?

Climate change is happening. The drivers of that change are complex, synergistic , not completely known and only marginally within our control . I think we need to attempt to do what we can just in case the engine doesn't restart. At the same time, needlessly shooting ourselves in the feet on the way down doesn't make sense either..

. Liberal solutions for these types of problems? Usually decrease the surplus population (kill more people, especially evil babies). Impose top down controls on every aspect of our lives ( our dear leaders can live and consume as they please, we have to make all the terrible sacrifices). Oh, and get rid of everything Christian...not sure why, but that always seems to be in their bloody little playbook. Once all these measures have takin place...well, you've got a damn paradise! Plus, planet goddess won't smite us all! Fuckers...

I see you have no problem supporting your communist authority.
An F.B.I. agent infiltrated the Weather Underground back in the 1960's. In talking with the leadership he asked them what they would do, once they gain power. Like you,they were very matter of fact in stating, we will set up re-education of the children in state schools. Those who resisted change would be serrated and forced out of the school system.(Hence the high student failure rate of our public schools.) Of those that would change their thinking and accept Communism would be promoted as leaders of society. But we estimate maybe 20 to 25 million Americans would need to be eliminated because they would refuse to accept Communism. These same 1960's terrorist radicals are now teaching in our Universities and their students are leaders in government positions. As well as in control of the Dem. party
Core curriculum. They will need to..... Eradicate..... People who can remember..... Freedom......

The FCC , controlled by the current administration, tried to move on media that refused to "tow the line", with an insane plan to"monitor"media outlets for perceived"truth". Public outcry forced a retreat, yet the govt. controlled media never found this story"worthy"of coverage. MSNBC,(the American Pravda) is more interested in the govt. Controlled agenda, the make-believe Christie scandal.

Obama became the first president to not attend the Gettysburg ceremony. This was a slap in the face to Americans. But this president doesn't care. Sending the bust of Churchill back to England was not exactly an exercise in polite behavior to our most loyal ally, but that didn't matter, only this presidents warped perceptions matter.

We will see what the investigations reveal. If I am wrong and Christie is not guilty, I will come forward saying it was a Democrat attack on him. If he is found guilty, will you come forward to say that he was just another crooked Republican politician?

I don't think you have thought very clearly. Suppose Patel, who makes $30,000 per year and has 5 children and pays no income tax applies for funds to send his five children to Greensboro Islamic Academy . So NC taxpayers pay Patel 5 X $4500=$22,500 to send his kids to Greensboro Islamic Academy when he hasn't paid any taxes to start with. So that means that you and I and others have to pony up money to support an Islamic Academy for Patels children. So you have no children, tough. pay up anyway. My kid attends public school and I only have one child, tough, pony up and pay anyway. So I do not support Islam, tough, pony up . That's why they call it TAX. Because it is not voluntary to begin with.
Then there is the constitutional prohibition against state adoption of religion, any religion. So the constitution is no important if I want something it prohibits?

Come on State, you know that innocent republikan commies would never break the law. Only a liberal conspiracy would even have to gall to question the massive bribery of republikans. Now democrats, that's different. They are all guilty even before the trial.
That's TP justice.
