G-20 Summit

TORONTO

TORONTO (AP) — World leaders are lining up behind a bold pledge by rich nations to cut budget deficits in half by 2013.

Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, host of a summit of the world's 20 top industrial and developing nations, said at Sunday's session that it's "imperative that we get our fiscal house in order."

The deficit-cutting goal would mean cutting the red ink in half within three years and getting the total debt stabilized by 2016.

"Advanced economies have committed to fiscal plans that will at least halve deficits by 2013 and stabilize or reduce government debt-to-GDP ratios by 2016," according to a draft statement obtained by The Associated Press. The gross domestic product measures the value of all goods and services, and is considered the best gauge of economic health.

Harper told the leaders that countries need to walk a "tightrope" between deficit spending this year, ensuring the fragile recovery continues, and then switching to deficit reduction programs.

The targets that the G-20 countries were moving to adopt were outlined by Harper in a letter he sent to fellow leaders this month.

Harper's proposal stood in contrast to President Barack Obama's priorities in a competing letter. Obama urged the G-20 countries to avoid the costly mistake made during the 1930s, when countries reduced government support too quickly and ended up prolonging the Great Depression.

But in the discussions in Canada, it was clear that Obama's view was in the minority as country after country stressed the need to reduce deficits.

Many nations are worried about the example of Greece, which fell into a financial crisis this year when financial markets became convinced that it was about to default on its government debt.

At least the Blue Jays were willing to admit that the game meant absolutely nothing to them :lol:

Talk about getting permanently fucked. Toronto is in the same division as the Red Sox and Yankees. And now the Tampa Rays are even good.

lol dungeness g1. our country wants to keep things going the same way even if it does not help us or anyone else. Is it not funny how other countries report on this but not ours does not(interesting isn`t) Most people think we are still number 1 on everything, thats why companies here out source to there(lol) Most people just sit back and keep that delusion in there heads because their heads would explode if they put any real thought in to checking things themselves and find out that illusion was wrong. What can we show other countries about money when we let the banks go nuts and them bailed them out just to watch them give huge bonus to the ceo`s that f#$k it up to start with(how stupid can they be) How far in debt are we again oh thats right, up to our hair in shit

Our national debt is already pushing its way past our GDP.

We all have to work with less while our government lets our corporations fuck us up the ass.

I find it funny that there is going to be more outrage over the governments cuts in spending than their has been about their decades of excess spending that got us to this point to begin with.

USA USA USA!
