Alistair Darling, the chancellor of the exchequer , suggested that the G20 nations should develop an approach to dealing with asset price bubbles.
Darling told Bloomberg, a news service, on Thursday: "We have got to make sure we don't get ourselves into a situation where some pressure starts to rise and then it becomes bigger and bigger and when the whole thing comes to an end it has catastrophic consequences."
