G-20 punishment?

Written by Rosa Colucci on .

Is being given the opportunity to host the G-20 summit a reward or a punishment?

Who "awarded" the opportunity and who accepted it? Did anyone think beyond fuller hotel rooms and restaurants and some souvenir shopping? This is not a friendly event like a Super Bowl parade, a Stanley Cup parade, a Major League Baseball All-Star Game or a U.S. Open golf tournament. There will be major expenditures.

The demonstrators are already organizing. Let's all hope that those who wanted this event made a good decision.
