Global Economic Recovery – Five Years Later, Some Countries Still Lag

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on January 1, 2013

New York Times/Infographic: “Five years ago, in the fourth quarter of 2007, the United States economy peaked before what became known as the Great Recession set in. Some countries, China and Australia among them, never saw their economies decline, but most did, and some of the largest economies remain smaller than they were in 2007. The world economy — measured by total gross domestic product in 56 countries for which data are available — is now about 6 percent larger. But share prices have yet to fully recover in most countries.” See also related article.
