The Nightly #World #News Report of the 11th of November 2012

I want to report today on the current state of economies from my simple understanding thereof. The Japan’s economy shrunk by 0.9% during this past quarter, and as you see in the first few tweets it is down 3.5% from last year at this time. The many technology companies have been struggling to keep up with innovation. I saw many quarterly reports missing their marks.
The United States is facing the fiscal cliff as the tax cuts are going to expire and Obamacare is going to hit us. This is one of the first issues that Obama is working on. This past week I read that the deficit is narrowing, but the expenditures of the government are still high.
Today Greece approved 2013’s budget, and the government there finally approved their austerity measures this past week despite the protests.
Spain is facing hard times as two people committed suicide for their evictions. The government are seeking a way to limit evictions as a result.
A French mayor has been on a hunger strike for greater financial support of his city since the 9th of November 2012.
The Iranian Government and it’s industries are facing the worst sanctions of the world, and it’s steel market is having a very time.
Portugal has a great struggle as numbering as third as the worst hit with Greece and Spain, but they seem to be working it out.
