British Prime Minister Declares ‘The New World Order is Emerging’
G-20 to give $1 trillion to IMF, World BankLONDON (AP) - Prime Minister Gordon Brown says leaders at the G-20 summit have agreed to give $1 trillion to the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank to help struggling nations around the world.
Brown also says the 20 countries at the summit will enact common policies to crack down on tax havens, regulate hedge funds, and rebuild trust in the financial system to "prevent a crisis such as this from happening again."
He says the G-20 nations will also give emerging powers a greater say in the world economy.
Brown did not outline any new fiscal measures but says that the stimulus packages already announced by major nations have already been the biggest in history.
My question is whether this is instead of, or in addition to, the $845 Billion Obama would assess US taxpayers and send to the UN as part of (then) Sen. Obama's Global Poverty Bill.
Obama plan ships dollars overseas ? by the billions
