Amid the G-20 headlines ("nobody mention the war"), leaders are proudly commenting on the global co-ordination on growth and tackling joblessness (and group hugs), but it was President Obama's comments that raised a few eyebrows:
- *OBAMA TOLD G-20 STIMULUS WILL BE WITHDRAWN GRADUALLY: RUSSIA
It would seem, the President has decided the decision to taper - gradually - will be his, which is odd, because - as if one needed reminding - the decision is not his to make (unless he decided to nominate himself for Fed chair?).
All is well in the world:
- *PUTIN: G-20 SEEKS BALANCE BETWEEN FISCAL CONSOLIDATION, GROWTH
- *SILUANOV SAYS G-20 NOTED POSITIVE SIGNALS IN GLOBAL ECONOMY
- *SILUANOV SAYS G-20 FULLY BACKED GROWTH, JOBS AGENDA
but don't mention the (Syrian) War...
