U.K. Prime Minister Gordon Brown said international efforts to resolve issues that led to the financial crisis must include a clampdown on excessive compensation for bankers. However, he was not enthusiastic about mandatory limits on bonuses, which France has been pushing. He also said it is too early for nations to abandon their stimulus efforts. Brown received much praise for his chairmanship of the Group of 20 summit in London, and the upcoming G-20 summit in the U.S. will provide him a chance to help get the global recovery on track.
