The G20 , Nuclear Power and the concept of ENOUGH – theme for November 2014
Critics call the G20 an unofficial global government promoting neoliberal economics. Whenever there is a choice to be made between the interests of corporate power and the interests of the population, they support the needs of corporations. All the while, they neglect climate change by pushing the issue to the bottom of the agenda.
They see the G20 as playing the role of global cop and global financial ‘reform’ facilitator – without accountability to the people they speak for and at the expense of the poor and dispossessed. This is why there are always protests when the G20 and G8 come to (any) town. http://www.g20breakdown.com/g20-background/g8g20-overview/
the G20, at a leaders’ level, is de facto the premier forum for international dialogue and cooperation on a whole range of critical global issues that have been unable to find resolution in other contexts.
Yet the G20 excludes more than four-fifths of the world’s countries, causing some critics (and excluded countries) to denounce it as unrepresentative and therefore insufficiently legitimate…….
the informal structure of the G20, with a rotating chair and no permanent secretariat, means that agendas are determined each year by the chair and so can swing widely, and formal mechanisms to monitor follow-through on countries’ public commitments are weak……..
The group is widely perceived by the public as transnational elites hatching plans behind closed doors in insulated centers of power. http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2012/02/24/does-the-g20-matter/
