IMF reports global economy may contract - color me shocked

Interesting information just out from the IMF regarding the global economy. The way the information is framed is fascinating. Check out the WSJ for some good economist-speak. My favorite is the first sentence from AFP, "There is danger the fragile global recovery could collapse unless Europe averts sovereign defaults, the United States gets its fiscal house in order and emerging economies prevent overheating, the IMF warned Friday." Oh, is that all we have to do?

This is a side note at the moment, but the stuff of the story is about to have massive impact. And these days the delay from side note to massive impact can be quite short.
