A very cool graphic from the Economist looking at the GDP, Unemployment and Inflation forecasts for the US, Japan, Euro Zone and OECD. As leaders of the G20 countries gather in Washington, these factors and their forecasts will be key when decisions are made. 2009 looks like a global write-off from an economic perspective, but growth and jobs should return by 2010. Do you agree?
I think the OECD is painting an overly optimistic picture. My bet is it will take till 2011/2012 before the US and eventually the global economy is humming again. What are your thoughts?
