Optimism and commitment to do more are inevitable themes to expect from the G-20 meeting in Shanghai. Yet, these platitudes are being projected to an increasingly skeptical and pessimistic market. Global growth is slowing, China is facing economic and financial pressure, Emerging Markets are wobbling, views on effective global monetary policy are on taking extremely divergent paths, and worries of asset bubbles are starting to worry even the bulls. These concerns cannot simply be talked down and there is no easy solution officials can resort to. That being the case, this summit takes on a very different tone. Rather than providing a sense of hope that policy leadership of the world's largest economies are discussing common solutions, it serves to remind us of the issues at hand and the risk as they pass unresolved. What could the G20 do in pratical terms? What are the issues beyond their influence? We discuss the global risks facing the world's economy and financial system as well as the limitations for policy officials in today's Strategy Video.
