The article reports on the economic outlook of several sectors in the U.S. for the fourth quarter of 2009. It mentions that most experts predict little or no economic growth for the U.S. economy in 2009, followed by perhaps 2 percent growth in 2010. With the credit remaining tight throughout the world, manufacturing activity in the country will continue to slowdown into 2009 as companies restrict production and employment while they liquidate and match output to reduce demands.
