Austerity round-up

Austerity round-up

I am going to get back on the saddle with this site after a 2 month hiatus – I had a lot of catching up to do after the G20 in other areas of my life, leaving G20 Breakdown on the back burner.  But it’s now back, and I plan to be posting at least 2-3 times a week…

The plan is to focus it on the austerity plans around the world, tracking what is happening and reactions to it.  It is not going to be solely G20 focused, though I will certainly be covering the G20 meetings in Korea in November 2010.  Basically, the site will become about the austerity measures overall, with reports on the G20’s role, etc…

There is certainly a lot happening around the issue of economic austerity right now, from Romanian protests to the 300 U.S. economists who are warning against spending cuts, to the Bank of England working to get UK unions on board with the cuts (to mixed results). And mass protests are expected in Europe on September 29th against the austerity plans.

More to come…
