全球性的滞缩已经到来了吗?

纽约—来自美国、其他发达经济实体和新兴市场的最新宏观经济消息证明全球经济将在2009年面临严重的衰退。美国的衰退从2007年12月开始,而且最起码要持续到2009年12月—这是 美国自二战以来持续时间 最长,最严重的 一场危机 ,GDP(国内生产总值)大约将累计下滑超过5%。

    • Sooner or later, Trump's core supporters will wake up to this fact, so it is worth asking how far he might go to keep them on his side.

    The Man Who Didn’t Save the World

    A Saudi prince has been revealed to be the buyer of Leonardo da Vinci's "Salvator Mundi," for which he spent $450.3 million.
