Houston...

From BBC News:

"In a just-released update to its World Economic Outlook, the IMF now projects world growth to fall to just 0.5 percent in 2009, the lowest growth rate in 60 years. Despite wide-ranging policy actions by governments and central banks around the world, financial strains remain acute, pulling down the real economy. Advanced economies are expected to experience their sharpest contraction in the post-World War II period. Emerging and developing economies—though more resilient than in previous global downturns—are also expected to suffer serious setbacks. The report suggests that (1) stronger policy actions to restore financial sector health, and(2) macroeconomic stimulus—both monetary and fiscal—to support demand, are needed."
