Opinion: (John Kirton, Co-Head of the G20 Research Group at the University of Toronto, Canada): “‘The Cannes summit has got to, for one, contain the euro crisis. Number two, find a way to generate strong, sustained, balanced growth in the global economy. Third, put in place stronger financial regulations and supervision… and then it has to move on to look at development’…
“Thousands of international activists, with a range of causes, are staging protests in the nearby city of Nice to make sure world leaders focus on people and not just on financial markets.”
My Comment: These protests begin to show that more people are starting to believe not in an economic but in a social solution to the crisis, not in further industrial growth needed only for the rich to become richer but in fair distribution of the existing resources, which will be enough for everyone with equal distribution of surplus.
