World can't rely on U.S. to carry economy forever - Canada

WHITBY, Ontario, Feb 6 (Reuters) - Although the United States is carrying the world economy at the moment, “that is simply not sustainable”, and other major nations need to re-assert themselves, Canadian Finance Minister Joe Oliver said on Friday.

Oliver said in a speech that the world economy was off to a rough start in 2015 and that kick-starting growth would be the focus of a Group of 20 meeting in Turkey next week.
