OECD Says G-20 Grew at Weakest Pace Since 2009 in Second Quarter

Sept. 13 (Bloomberg) -- The economy of the Group of 20 nations grew in the second quarter at the weakest pace since the start of 2009, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development said.

The combined economy of the G-20 area expanded 0.6 percent in the second quarter from the first, when it grew 0.7 percent, the Paris-based organization said in a report today.

That was the third consecutive quarter of slowdown and the softest since the first quarter of 2009, when the economy shrank 1.5 percent from the prior period.

The G-20 combines the world’s leading industrial and emerging economies.
