EU forecasts recession of ’historic proportions’ this year with 7.5% contraction

EU forecasts recession of ’historic proportions’ this year with 7.5% contraction

The Commission warned an uneven economic recovery across members poses an existential threat to the single market and Eurozone. EU members already in economic triage prior to coronavirus have greater challenges ahead as the Economy Commissioner Paolo Gentiloni urged the bloc to rise to the challenge and make ’decisive, joint European action.’ Greece and Italy are expected to lose 10% GDP in 2020.

The EU made sure to get their dig in at the UK for Brexiting, pointing out that the UK is expected to hit +6% GDP growth by next year, while the EU is expecting to hit +6.1%. But a minimum -5% GDP collapse is bad, and some of the member states may have it worse (Italy, Greece).

Hopefully this will sink the idea of a universal wage.

As if they cared about the struggling members of the EU. Nobody stud up for Greece when the Union tried to force them to pay a debt the same EU pretty much imposed on them with their uneven economic and geopolitical laws.
