Project description

This project will test the hypothesis that the G20 is a device through which the G7 countries exert power over the emerging markets. The study will examine the degree of ideological consent between the G7 and the emerging markets within the G20. The next step is to study the degree of power equality among the G7 and the emerging markets.
