This from a World Bank press release:
Developing countries should prepare for further downside risks, as Euro Area debt problems and weakening growth in several big emerging economies are dimming global growth prospects, says the World Bank in the newly-released Global Economic Prospects (GEP) 2012.
The Bank has lowered its growth forecast for 2012 to 5.4 percent for developing countries and 1.4 percent for high-income countries (-0.3 percent for the Euro Area), down from its June estimates of 6.2 and 2.7 percent (1.9 percent for the Euro Area), respectively. Global growth is now projected at 2.5 and 3.11 percent for 2012 and 2013, respectively.
This doesn’t bode well and I wonder if technology is going to remain immune to this slowdown. Thoughts?
