Last quarter’s sharp slowdown in US economic growth was confirmed


The same thing happened in France…

…and South Korea

Brazil’s economy, on the other hand, grew faster than expected


The US saw no (headline) inflation last month

Neither—for the first time on record—did the UK

Inflation is also slowing sharply in Japan (and if you account for the effects of last year’s sales tax hikes, prices didn’t grow at all)


US oil supplies continue to climb

Argentina’s industrial production continued to slow down

The Nigerian naira remains stable ahead of the country’s March 28 elections…

…though you can’t say the same about the country’s foreign exchange holdings
