Stephen Archer of UK business consultancy Spring Partnerships outlines the key concerns of business leaders ahead of this weeks G20 summit and how world leaders can best address the economic crisis.
With all eyes on the world leaders at the G20 summit this week gathered to collectively address the economic crisis the main issue affecting businesses owners in the UK is whether they can do something quickly to stop the rot.
There is a high level of expectation and an even higher level of hope around this critical summit. This recession is unique in many ways but its top down nature is particularly notable. In other words, rather than being driven by consumer behaviour it is driven by the partial collapse of the financial system which in turn has severely damaged businesses.
