An assessment of the G20’s initial action items

Twenty months after the first G20 summit in Washington, we assess the implementation of the 47 action items included in that summit’s final declaration.

By: and Date: September 9, 2010 Topic: Finance & Financial Regulation

Twenty months after the first G20 summit in Washington, we assess the implementation of the 47 action items included in that summit’s final declaration.

We analyse and provide a score for progress made using three measures: implementation of the leaders’ agenda; consistency across jurisdictions; and continuity of purpose measured by follow-up actions.

A strong correlation is observed between the effectiveness of implementation and the nature of the main public institution(s) in charge: the more the implementation of the action point depends on action by an international body that is independent in terms of administration and resources, the more effective the implementation.

Deglobalisation in the context of United States-China decoupling

After decades of increasing globalisation, there now seems to be a slowing, or even a turn to deglobalisation, meaning decelerating trade and investment and reduced global value chains. This trend seems to have accelerated because of the United States’ push to contain China in the context of their strategic competition. So far, however, there is less evidence of deglobalisation in terms of financial flows.
