What The G20 Should Do

1) Renounce Protectionism outright and reiterate an unshakable commitment to Free Trade.

2) Agree to stop spending money they haven’t got.

3) Agree not to print any, either.

4) Go home.

Five minutes’ work.

I was struck by Daniel Hannan's recollection, earlier in the week, of Lord Salisbury's assessment of the crisis in Bulgaria in the 1880s: "If anything happens, it will be for the worse. It is therefore in our interest that as little should happen as possible."

One out of four, they went home; not good, unlike Salisbury.
