Chrystia Freeland interviews Larry Summers


For economic wonks here is a lengthy and broad interview this morning with Larry Summers.

He paints a positive picture that America has turned the corner, is producing jobs, and progressing well. 

On the question of stimulus versus consolidation, he makes the point that a country with growth has a greater chance of being in control of its own destiny.  He notes that non growth countries find it very hard to maintain a positive financial picture (alluding to Japan).

He talks specifically about the origins of G20 and how he and Paul Martin were the originals in setting that up.

Worth the listen.
