There's nothing wrong with the G20 (and G7) getting back to its historic root of economic and fiscal policy coordination of the major world economies. Politicians have plenty of other options to get up on their soap box.

If Canada has a say in the final statement, the focus will be on decolonizing math and science through a "gender lens." You think I am kidding, but I am not. Canada has made itself irrelevant by insisting on focusing on loopy things.

Since it is in Brazil I hope they have asked Javier Milei as an observer and guest speaker.

@Strangerland Just as awesome as the money Canada gave to the Ukraine last week for, are you ready, "gender inclusive demining for sustainable futures” to promote "gender-transformative mine action in Ukraine."

As it should be.

That's good, because G20 was an economic forum before the West brought their obsession with Ukraine into it and became disruptive.

The G20 host sets the agenda, and Brazil's leftist President Lula has already blamed both Russia and Ukraine for the war, and further blamed Biden for not doing enough to stop it.

It's funny that the Western liberals blame the right for supporting Russia over Ukraine, but outside the Western bloc its both the left and the right which are actually seeing through the hypocrisy of the Western liberals.

Depoliticise trade. The politicisation of everything will simply lead to division and war.

Politics is toxic.

It's just the finance meeting. The regular meeting can get back to highlighting the crimes of Russia.

A disgraceful stance if true. Nobody should be saying a country is responsible for an unprovoked assault and annexation of its own territory. And Putin's petulant demand was for far more than just a statement on Ukraine. It was rightly placed in the waste receptacle.

No what's funny is that anyone claims that this is anything more than apathy, schadenfreude, and maximizing profit.
