The US economy unexpectedly shrank at the end of last year, news that was released just as the Federal Reserve policymakers were holding their regular monthly meeting.
The US central bank confirmed there was a pause in the growth of economic activity in recent months and so its stimulus policies continue, for now.
Apparently for the Spanish economy the time has also come for more stimulus. The Madrid government has said it will ease some austerity measures. Could Spain get back on track without the EU’s help?
The eurozone’s businesses have not been rushing to take out loans, according to the latest data from the European Central Bank. Why is that?
In this edition of Business Weekly we discuss all those issues with Jonathan Ferro from Bloomberg.
