Economy in worst fall since '82
According to the Wall Street Journal, http://online.wsj.com/article/SB123574078772194361.html#articleTabs%3Darticle more recent figure -- which represents the steepest dropoff since the depths of the 1982 recession -- raises pessimism among economists. Until recently, many had been hoping for a rebound in 2009 and now sound downbeat about the remainder of this year. As saying on the video, it would be too soon to say that this is the bottom of the recession. Growth in both Europe and the U.K. fell at an identical 5.9% annual rate. Japan said last week its GDP had contracted more than 12%. The U.S. exports declined at a 24% annual rate, compared with the 20% rate previously reported. This recession is worldwide, so it would be good time to learn other country plan for recession.
