Every week, Maddyness curates articles from other outlets on a topic that is driving the headlines. This week we look at the position of the UK as the nation entered a recession potentially worse than the 2008 crisis.

The worst peacetime recession in 100 years, says the OECD

The global economy is plunging into the worst peacetime recession in a century, according to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. The Paris-based agency said Wednesday it expects the global economy to contract 6% this year before rebounding in 2021, a prediction that ranks among the gloomiest offered by multilateral financial institutions. Furthermore it warns that a second wave of coronavirus infections would lead to even more disruption and economic scarring. Read the full story on CNN Business.
