ABSTRACT
The article reports that the year 2008 looks to be a tough and difficult period for the world economy, following the financial turmoil of August and September 2007, which has triggered a decline in house prices in the U.S. and parts of Europe. The uncertainty has been exacerbated by the threat of oil prices bursting through the psychologically important level of $100/bbl and also by unusually big increases in food prices partially caused by the big switch to biofuels in North America and Europe.
