IMF's GLOOMY World Economic Forecast

The link provides the details; consider these primers:

"The International Monetary Fund has downgraded its global economic forecasts for 2020, and is now predicting the coronavirus pandemic will cause a much deeper recession and slower recovery than originally expected."

"The IMF said the current global economic crisis, dubbed the Great Lockdown, is “unlike anything the world has seen before,” with a higher degree of uncertainty about a recovery."

Re: IMF's GLOOMY World Economic Forecast

And all people had to do was keep their ass quiet for about 3 weeks, not travel period, and do the other sensible virus avoidance things, and the whole thing would be minimal damage to health and economies, but no. We'll manage the peak to take the pressure off the hospitals... bollocks. It was a total FUBAR. Now made worse by idiots demanding their freedom to kill themselves and anybody they come into touch with.

Then there's the other poorer countries like India, that are so Fckd, they don't know what hit them, helped by a government order to mass migrate back to the villages.... increasing the damage, and idiots in Brazil thinking it's fake news.

What a cluster FCK.

Britain of course has been so sluggish in doing anything, they have made it a long painful exercise in futility.
