G20 Fizzles as China-Africa Summit Leads to a $10 Billion Loan

While U.S. and European officials this weekend squabbled over the specifics of an economic recovery plan, China took another step to ensure long-term economic growth by inking another multibillion-dollar deal with Africa.

Finance ministers from the Group of 20 (G20) met over the weekend to discuss the ongoing healing process taking place in the world's financial system. Officials agreed that stimulus measures should remain in place, as the global economic recovery is still vulnerable. They also acknowledged that while the dollar is weakening, its downside risk is outweighed by the need to "continue to provide support for the economy until the recovery is assured."

Analysts say that the dollar's decline will take a back seat to the economic recovery so long as it remains orderly.

    i am actually sorry to see the rise in gold but that is an expression of commodites. i say that about gold because we are protesting the company INFINITO GOLD of Calgary, Alberta for their cyanide usage and the enviornmental damage to protected endangered wildlife areas in COSTA RICA. they have all the government permits but this government has sold its soul for the presiden's share of the action.
    the president is the world's hero for enviornmental causes, the nobel peace winner, none other than, yes, you guessed it, drumroll please, OSCAR ARIAS. yea, OSCARCITO!!!!!!!!!!!!
