That’s the number of global interest-rate cuts since June 2007.

The Group of Seven finance ministers and central bank governors — from the United States, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Canada and Japan — will meet today and tomorrow in Buckinghamshire, England, to discuss the global economy.

Some economists are “predicting policy makers will keep deploying stimulus amid weak global growth, slowing inflation and the need to thwart currency gains,” Bloomberg’s Simon Kennedy and Jennifer Ryan report here.

The finance heads will discuss “how to nurture the recovery,” George Osborne, the U.K. Chancellor of the Exchequer, said in London yesterday, Bloomberg’s Gonzalo Vina reported.
