Advance Analysis

The CNN article, “Bush to host world summit on financial crisis,? is an advance for the conference President Bush plans to host after the November elections for world leaders to talk about how to respond globally to the financial crisis.

The article specifically cites President George W. Bush, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, White House spokesman Tony Fratto and European President Jose Manuel Barroso.

The angle of the story is taken from the perspective of why the summit will be held: haste is needed to stabilize the global economy. The story goes from why the U.S. is holding the conference to what other countries around the world, such as Germany, Switzerland, Singapore and South Korea, are doing to prevent economic collapse.

This approach keeps the story from becoming more than just a listing of the conference Bush plans to hold because it provides a lot of information and background for why such a meeting is called for and how the crisis is affecting markets worldwide. The story fits into the worldwide context of what is happening with the global economy.
