Hu Jintao wanted a world currency. Sarkozy wanted more regulation and an international regulator. Merkel opposed additional fiscal stimulus. Medvedev was re-seting Russia-US relations.
And Manmohan Singh wanted Obama's autograph!!
Listening to Manmohan Singh's press conference later it seemed we were glad that we were invited and that in itself was an achievement.
I am sure we could have done better. Protectionism and IMF reform were items we could have championed publicly. Atleast got the PR right. But I guess with elections back home, really, who cares about a "fancy" global financial meltdown. We truly have bigger issues to worry about.
