What’s on the G20′s mind?

Just put the G20’s statement (pdf) through Wordle to get a snapshot of their discussions this week.

  • ‘Growth’ occurs 67 times
  • ‘Climate change’ occurs 4 times
  • ‘Poverty’ is mentioned 4 times
  • There is no mention of the oil price
  • The search terms ‘justice’ and ‘human rights’ return no results
