By MoneyRates Team | Money Rates Columnist

The latest economics forecast from Wachovia Economics Group has been released and includes predictions for negative economic growth in the United States and Europe for 2009 with a return to positive growth in 2010. The forecasts calls for continued growth in some Pacific Rim countries and South American countries contributing to a global growth rate of 1.9%, the lowest global growth rate since 1991. The 1.9% forecast is well-below the mark of some other major economists who have pegged global growth as low as -3%, but without the detailed breakdown and analysis of the report from Wachovia.
