Gordon Brown announces ‘new world order’

Gordon Brown announced the creation of a “new world order” after the conclusion of the G20 summit of world leaders in London.

The G20 Summit  may come to be seen as the world’s costliest mistake, or the day the world identified and acted upon the realities posed by a new world order … an era of government control.

Reports around the world show a clear sense that we are genuinely entering a changed environment – one in which the role of government, through regulation and intervention, is going to be more dominant, and one where businesses and their leaders are to be questioned more, scrutinised more and, perhaps, restrained more … and that can only be a good thing.

The New World Order beins today

The implications for businesses  will emerge over the coming weeks.  What is certain is that the shift of power between the East and the West will no longer be speculation – it will become the dominant trend.

Whilst there is a lot of discontent amongst the environmentalists, it must be remembered that this summit was all about money.  We will have to wait until the end of the year to see how the decisions of the London G20 Summit will be translated at the Copenhagen Gathering on Climate Change.  Where there are positive words today, will they turn into action tomorrow?  We can only hope !
