The last thing we need to do is encourage policies that empower billions of foreign consumers to compete with us for scarce real resources and diminish our real terms of trade.

Obama seeks ‘Sustained’ Fiscal Stimulus in G-20 Summit Appeal

by Tony Czuczka

Mar 24 (Bloomberg) — President Barack Obama urged fellow Group of 20 leaders to provide a “robust and sustained” fiscal stimulus, saying that “much more” action is needed to fight the global recession.

In an article published today in newspapers including Germany’s Die Welt and the Paris-based International Herald Tribune, Obama also urged increased funding for international lenders and a “common framework” of steps to restore the world economy’s flow of credit.

“Our efforts must begin with swift action to stimulate growth,” Obama said in the article laying out U.S. goals for the G-20 summit in London on April 2. “Other members of the G- 20 have pursued fiscal stimulus as well, and these efforts should be robust and sustained until demand is restored.”
