An article from a Business Daily reported that, “China's Q1 GDP expanded 6.1%. That was the slowest yearly gain since at least '92, as exports plunged due to the global slump. Still, China's results are far better than the severe contractions in the U.S. and other big powers. And March data suggests Chinese growth is picking up. A key capital spending measure rose 30.3% from a year ago vs. 25.3% in Jan.-Feb. Industrial output improved to an 8.3% gain.”

Daily further said that, “the latest economic data is mixed. March housing sank 10.8%, erasing much of Feb.'s 17.4% jump. But single-family starts have held steady for 3 months, hinting at a bottom. New jobless claims fell 53,000 last week to 610,000, the lowest since Jan. But continuing jobless claims topped 6 mil. The Philly Fed manufacturing index was the latest report signaling a slowing factory decline.”

The daily added to above that, “Global slump seen dragging on. 'The combination of financial crisis and a globally synchronized downturn is likely to result in an unusually severe and long-lasting recession,' the IMF said. Such recessions typically last about 2 years, and it takes some 3 ½ years before an economy hits its previous peak. The IMF called for aggressive monetary and fiscal policies to ease the financial crisis, which intensified last Sept. after Lehman Bros. went bankrupt.”
