Plan unveiled during talks with French, European Commission presidents
CAMP DAVID, Md. – President Bush, looking for answers to a global economic emergency with just three months left in office, will host an international summit to discuss ways to fix the world financial system but warned on Saturday against reforms that threaten capitalism.
“We will work to strengthen and modernize our nations’ financial systems so we can help ensure that this crisis doesn’t happen again,” Bush said at the Camp David presidential retreat.
Bush, meeting with French President Nicolas Sarkozy and European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso, did not announce a date or site for the summit. But Sarkozy suggested it be held in the shadow of Wall Street before the end of November.
