Top economies yield to US, drop no-protectionism pledge

• sacbee.com By DAVID McHUGH

Finance ministers from the Group of 20 countries meeting in the southern German town of Baden-Baden issued a statement Saturday that said only that countries "are working to strengthen the contribution of trade" to their economies.

The statement from the G20 finance ministers and central bankers helps set the tone for further global economic cooperation.
