Apr 5 – Recent reports out from the World Bank and the IMF all point to a clear slowdown—not only in the U.S., but also in Europe, China, Japan and much of Asia. Many of these regions and countries are more dependent on global trade than the U.S., which is more self-reliant. On this edition of the Big Picture, Jim Puplava and Chris Preitauer discuss what this means for the stock market, our economy and investments in general. In part two they discuss the strong message credit markets are sending about potential problems.
