Abe Believes World Economy is Comparable to Lehman Crisis
28:13 - Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe failed in his bid to have Group of Seven leaders warn of the risk of a global economic crisis in a communique issued as their summit wraps up Friday in central Japan. The final statement declares that G-7 countries "have strengthened the resilience of our economies in order to avoid falling into another crisis." Abe had earlier said a risk of the world economy falling into a crisis on the scale of the 2008 Lehman shock is present if appropriate policy measures aren't taken.
