We started the week leading up to the G-20 by speaking with Dan Price, a former international economics assistant to President Bush who was responsible for setting up last year's meeting of the Group of 20 and is in London for this year's. We return to him now for his take on the summit, whether a trillion dollars is enough for the IMF, and the hope for a coordinated response to the global economic crisis.
"The globe is coming around to the view that just as the recovery can't be done on the backs of any single economy, so too, you can't really have a global trade agreement unless you have the major emerging economies as well as the developed economies making significant commitments."
—Dan Price, former assistant to President Bush, on the world economy
