Recovering to a new reality
What a difference half a year makes. We started the year on a sombre note, staring into an economic abyss. Plunging stock markets, frozen credit and runs on banks threatened to bring about a global financial meltdown that would send the world into the Great Recession. Six months later, with the economies still on fiscal life support, major Asian bourses have recovered over a third of their losses from the 2007 peaks and there are growing concerns that we may be witnessing the start of another asset bubble - except that this time, it is built on the smouldering rubble of a still-tattered real economy.
