Euro zone recession: GDP in the 17 member countries

GDP across the euro zone fell by 0.1 per cent in the third quarter, sending the 17-nation bloc into its second recession since 2009 after a second-quarter contraction of 0.2 per cent. The European Commission expects a decline of 0.4 per cent for the euro zone for all of 2012. The debt crisis, which began in Greece in 2009, has been holding back much of the global economy's recovery effort from the Great Recession of 2008-2009.
