Thomson Financial News - Given drought, given the international financial turmoil, given the credit squeeze, given the housing market coming off, it would be foolish to rule out the possibility that there could be two successive quarters of very small negative growth at some point in the next year or so. But we are not expecting to see the economy going through the floor. I think people when they hear the word (recession) think of depression and something long, sustained and with large increases in unemployment. I don't see the prospect of that.
