  • I thought it was G20 and it was the world leaders of the 20 largest economys on the planet. They held a world summit to discuss the economic crisis, and they will hold another one in like 4 months after Obama is the then President. From my understanding they have developed a 4 month plan on a few ways to work on the crisis and they will meet to discuss thier progress in a few months. Something like that. You can always check on CNN.com or whatever news website you prefer for info.

    Whats the G7 again?
