Economics, the Pope and G20

Pope Benedict XVI spoke to the G 20 Summit and highlighted the importance of the economic crisis and the duty of leaders:

I therefore encourage you to tackle the numerous serious problems facing you — and which, in a sense, face every human person today — bearing in mind the deeper reasons for the economic and financial crisis and giving due consideration to the consequences of the measures adopted to overcome the crisis itself, and to seek lasting, sustainable and just solutions…

The world’s attention focuses on you and it expects that appropriate solutions will be adopted to overcome the crisis, with common agreements which will not favor some countries at the expense of others. History, furthermore, reminds us that, no matter how difficult it is to reconcile the different socio-cultural, economic and political identities coexisting today, these solutions, to be effective, must be applied through combined action which, above all, respects the nature of man.

The rap below, doesn’t focus on the deeper issues of the crisis, but rather on currency wars. It is educational in it’s own way though.
