The German finance ministry denies a report out from Bloomberg

According to the folks at Bloomberg, Germany tried and failed to get language into G20 documents that would have said the group wanted to rein in easy monetary policy.

The Germans had drafted the document as part of their presidency of the G20 but they failed to convince other members that this strong language should be included.

Now, the finance ministry has sprung into action to deny the earlier story, which you can read here. A spokeswoman adds that they respect the independence of central banks.

I'll have to check out when the next G20 shindig is as that could be a lot of fun with Trump involved.
