The Guardian notes that the French president is a man with ambitions for 2011:
Sarkozy's leadership of the G8's six western powers and Russia and China, as well as his rotating presidency of the G20 forum of the largest economies, will focus on his ambitious plans to overhaul the financial system. He wants a new monetary system that does not depend on the dollar, to eradicate tax havens, stabilise commodities markets and tax international transactions.
I added the emphasis.
I’m not a Sarkozy person. But on these issues he’s got it right and is bang on what is needed. Good luck to him for that reason alone.
