As noted last week, Europe is barely staying above recessionary waters, growing by an anemic 0.2 percent in the third quarter, following a 0.1 percent growth rate in the second. This week it was revealed that Japan, the third largest global economy, actually fell back into its fourth recession since 2008, as activity contracted for the second consecutive quarter in the July-September period.
