a standoff one that smacks of double standards it's absolutely true that the united states of late has made don't mess to clean self-serving policy that was shortsighted and that did not consider the rest of the world and this set up the sole summit but despite global outrage with u.s. fiscal policy they got more of a high level silent treatment than any kind of fight right now it's the world against the united states and in terms of an agreement to deal with the currency war nun's going to happen there is no interest coming from china or germany the two other key players to solve this problem not interested or protecting interest. and that was before the session even started obama might have guessed there would be no compromising china wasn't budging and germany an export giant defends its right not to surrender its strength by spending more abroad to appease u.s. calls to help economic. recovery much of europe seems to be sitting back and

watching how this will all play out i think they are trying to be defensive and that's a weak position right now russia sees itself as a mediator and hopes multi-currency reserves over place currency wars should. i believe that the threat of a currency war breaking out will significantly decrease following today's summit we have reasons to be more optimistic about the future the group of twenty did agree to develop early warning indicators to prevent economic turmoil and gradually move on currency the question now is not enough to prevent this cas class from getting out of control. dr victoria over who is a political analyst for the moscow state university of international relations told me the result of this summit was too predictable they couldn't of it now is there anything different than that because there's already is quite a huge. exile in the world regarding what's happening in europe
2:03 pm
and not only and no regard to build. real real currency war so if they didn't come up to the any agreement on the g twenty seven it didn't say that that would have made it really a real blow for the investors and for the markets so they had to smooth with this but i'm not sure if all the substantial disagreements i actually rolled ruled out any of the good follow it. some to victoria and over a political analyst from moscow state university of international relations with a bit earlier on. the us wanted to use the g twenty to push china further but had to explain its actions instead that's what's leading global currency analysts governor romney has been telling us about. the u.s. was really looking for the g. twenty to be a forum to continue to pressure china and to have you know more unified front

power is headed in what countries have moved up on the list clearly china hu jintao is the president of china and he's number one on the list china has clearly arrived japan is much much lower on the list the japanese i think you have to get to number seventeen in the twenty's before you get to the japanese prime minister and also russia is a little bit lower than china in this case one of the criticisms that i read of the this year's list of most most powerful people is that. the chinese leader was in the number one because it's china and not him himself there are a lot of people on this list because they symbolize. the nature of the beast i mean osama bin laden is on the list a guy named chapo guzman who's a billionaire cocaine dealer in mexico is on the list he's in hiding i mean how powerful is that guy really but he represents the you know the violence in northern mexico and the inability of the state address it would actually make
