According to Bloomberg, “manufacturing in the Philadelphia region contracted for a sixth straight month as orders and employment weakened. The Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia's general economic index increased to (-35) in March from (-41.3) a month earlier, the bank said today. Negative numbers signal contraction.

Manufacturers are scaling back production and reducing expenses as the global economy sinks. Clogged credit markets forced the federal reserve yesterday to announce $1.1 trillion in additional initiatives, including buying treasury securities, in a bid to revive economic growth.”

The New York Times reported that, “The World Bank lowered its forecast for economic growth in china on Wednesday to 6.5 percent in 2009, reflecting the influence of the global slowdown. The figure, down from the bank's earlier forecast of 7.5 percent growth, is well below the 8 percent projected by the Chinese government for its market, the fastest-growing major economy.

It is more in line with what many independent economists expect for china, which has the world's third-largest economy after the United States and Japan. China's banks have been largely unscathed by the international financial turmoil, and the authorities will have plenty of leeway to enact additional stimulus measures on top of steps already announced by Beijing.”
