From The Washington Post:

LONDON, Nov. 10 — Prime Minister Gordon Brown on Monday warned that trade protectionism would worsen the global financial crisis, a remark widely perceived as aimed at U.S. President-elect Barack Obama.

In a speech lauding the “global power of nations working together,” Brown called for “rejection of beggar-thy-neighbor protectionism that has been a feature in transforming past crises into deep recessions.”
