TEXT-G20 finance chiefs' communique Reuters

NOTE: The IMF economists, Jaime Guajardo, Daniel Leigh and Andrea Pescatori, have shown in their recent paper "Expansionary Austerity, New International Evidence",  that a fiscal consolidation of 1 percent of GDP has on average reduced real private consumption by 0.75% within 2 years and a fall in real GDP by 0.62%. I MIS-SPOKE when I said it approximates 70%, instead of saying 0.7 (0.62%). In actual fact, with EU GDP's now approximating 1% before austeriry measures kick in, the 70% cited is correct but not in the context of the IMF data results..

Notice of slight audio issue with today's recording:  We experienced a problem with Ty's microphone of which we were unaware until it was too late. However, we chose to post the podcast as it was.  Our sincerest apologies for the distraction it may cause to our listeners.
