The Recovery Will Sputter In 2010

Honeywell’s ex-CEO Larry Bossidy isn’t seeing any signs of a robust recovery. While GDP will rebound and the economy is getting better, he expects it to settle to an “anemic” growth level of just 2-3% in 2010 since unemployment will still be very high.

His outlook is similar to that of Capital Economics, who see US GDP growth of just 3% in 2010, followed by an even slower 1.5% in 2011 once the effects of US stimulus wear off.
