Mexico’s Poor Provide Contrast to Glitzy G20

Plight of world’s poor, some living near the G20 venue, not on agenda for global economic leaders

Mexico’s President Felipe Calderon has welcomed world leaders at the G20 summit in the hills above the resort of San Jose del Cabo.

The summit has been dominated by a spiralling European debt crisis that is scaring markets and paralysing growth.

While heads of the 20 biggest economies discussed the eurozone crisis, addressing the plight of some of the world’s poorest people, some metres away from the conference centre, was not on the agenda.
