Completely free markets are unstable: Harper

Stephen Harper says the G-20 has become the steering committee for the global economy, and that such global governance is required to prevent instability created by the free market.

A completely unregulated, ungoverned market, a market without governance, is unstable. And to the extent we now have a truly globalized economy, we need some semblance of a global governance …

We’re not talking about world government.  I don’t think anybody is going to come in and say we’re prepared to surrender our sovereignty to the G-20 or some other body.  But what they are going to say, in practice, is that we have to coordinate our policies to create stability for all of us.

– Prime Minister Stephen Harper
