We know, we know. It’s been a rough half decade for the global economy. The US financial crisis bled into a global recession, Europe spiraled into a debt crisis that threatened to fracture the common currency, and recently, some once-hot emerging markets have been having real difficulties (We’re looking at you, India).
But the world economy is not doomed. In fact, you don’t have to search too far to find widespread signs that things are going reasonably well.
Seriously, look:Economic growth in the world’s largest economy is holding up fairly well.
