IMF Predicts Global Economic Downtrend

In its “downside scenario,” the fund said that a continued rise in European government borrowing rates and a worsening of problems with the region’s banks would push the world into recession.

“The current environment...provides fertile ground for self-perpetuating pessimism,” the fund wrote.


Their calculations predict the global downward trend in spite of the booming economies of China and India. Want to move there? I don't.
