The IMF released its World Economic Outlook today and, to put it mildly, the new numbers are disappointing– most especially for developed economies.We’re looking at a slowdown the world over, partly due to economic shocks (think: Europe), and also partly due to a lack of aggressive, coordinated action to fight financial crises.

The worst part is that this is assuming the best. It assumes that Euro-zone leaders will be able to solve their problems, and that U.S. politicians can strike a healthy balance between debt reduction and fiscal stimulus. The IMF is also hoping that the market holds out.
