Russia does outstanding work as G20 presiding country – Mexico finance minister

Those millionaires know you can do it! I took this argument apart in my book published earlier this year, Pound Foolish: Exposing the Dark Side of the Personal Finance Industry. I highlighted such people as latte factor originator David Bach, who is convinced that our daily coffee habit and other small gimmes are driving us into financial desperation. The so-called small things on which we waste money every day can add up in a hurry to life-changing moment, he once wrote. This animus also drives the financial literacy movement, which posits that our financial problems are not a result of an increasingly shaky economy for all too many people, or a ratcheting up of the complication of many bank-based products that seem almost hardwired to trip people up, but instead insists our personal financial ignorance is the cause of our woes.

The issue of debt burdens predictability will be also discussed, Siluanov said. As high debt volumes create uncertainly for investors, at the G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors meeting we plan to raise the issue of medium-term guidelines for debt policies of the countries that had accumulated large debts. We should tell investors about confidence in certain countries, about their debt policies and about whether they will pile up their debts or whether they will restrict or reduce them, the minister said. The G20 finance ministers will also discuss monetary measures to support economies. Siluanov also said he did not expect any major progress in the issue of reforming the IMF quota system.
