    REUTERS, NEW YORK- Those responsible for the crisis that has swept global financial markets should be punished, French President Nicolas Sarkozy said overnight in his first reaction to the latest bout of economic turmoil.
    In an acceptance speech at an award ceremony attended by US and French business leaders, Sarkozy called for the "truth" on the crisis to be uncovered.

    "Today, millions of people across the world fear for their savings, for their apartment, for the funds they have put in banks. It is our duty to give them clear answers," he said.

    "Who is responsible for this disaster? May those who are responsible be punished and held accountable," he said hours before he was due to give a speech to the UN General Assembly.

    I do too... If he's an experienced politician it will all be forgotten by morning.

    Sarkozy is a political hack. He says what sounds good for the sound bite.

    BTW, one of his solutions is a world regulatory banking commission.

    Lets see what he says when he is criticised. Beside did you notice any ideas on how those who caused the crisis are to be punished.
