All Praise Lu Kewen Thought!

The over-stretched Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade makes the thought of the legendary Lu Kewen available to the benighted masses of G20 nations:

KEVIN Rudd believes in spreading the good word - particularly his own good words on the evils of greedy neo-liberals - and doesn’t mind using the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade as a worldwide publishing agent.

The Prime Minister decided his 7700-word essay on the origins of the global financial crisis deserved a world audience before the G20 financial summit in London next month.

The essay, which argues for more global regulation of financial markets and says capitalism is “cannibalising itself”, is being distributed around the world through Australian embassies and high commissions…

Mr Rudd’s essay is now intended for world publication before the crisis meeting of the world’s top 20 economies in London on April 2.
