White House: Don't end stimulus efforts yet

L'AQUILA, Italy (AP) - The White House says it's not quite time
for industrialized nations to pull the plug on economic stimulus
efforts.
Economic adviser Mike Froman said Wednesday that world leaders
gathered at a G-8 summit in Italy will seek a balance between
continuing to stimulate sluggish economies and looking for exit
strategies.
Froman told reporters there is still uncertainty and risk in the
global economy. He also said it's important to return to fiscal
sustainability, which would not include government stimulus
efforts.
Some G-8 leaders have urged President Barack Obama to support an
end to stimulus efforts soon.
