Recession is over, 2010 appears positive: Premji
Bangalore: With the worst fears of a prolonged recession being over, Wipro Chairman and a Co-Chair of the World Economic Forum (WEF), Azim Premji said that the outlook for the global economy has turned positive this year though the road ahead is full of challenges.

"The last 12-18 months have been very difficult for the global economy. However, I think the worst is over, 2010 looks positive," Premji said. The road to recovery, however, would vary in different economies, he said. "While the mature economies are taking time, the emerging economies like India, Brazil and China have already started to show smart growth recovery."

Premji is the sole Indian CEO who has been placed among the top six global CEOs by the WEF, a meet tha has sought to influence policy-makers, businesses and civil society across the world for the past four decades. He is particularly positive about the information technology industry. "It (IT) is the basic tool for efficiency and improvement. Given the challenges, most companies are looking at IT."

In fact, several Indian IT firms have posted better-than-expected results for the third quarter ended December. This year's WEF meeting, which has a theme of 'rethink, redesign and rebuild the world', comes after 18 months of economic crisis and a global demand for tackling climate change.

"These two issues seem almost disparate but to me they are not. They form the basis of my agenda as co-chair. Both are global challenges and need co-ordinated, rapid and overwhelming, response from the global community," Premji said. He said the combination of economic crisis and tackling greenhouse gases present an opportunity in terms of market at the bottom of the economic pyramid and green growth.

However, the world needs to resolve issues like financing the green technologies and increasing purchasing power of the poor in the developing countries.

2: I share your optimism Shri Azim Premji.

In a Interesting article,” Recession over by end of 2010, consumers predict” Emily Neale Wrote:
Research from uSwitch.com reveals that 6 million (13%) consumers believe that that the UK economy will emerge from recession before the end of 2009, and a further 44% expect a return to positive growth at some point in 2010.
And this optimism isn’t limited to the recession. The research found that one in four (25%) consumers expect a speedy recovery for the labour market, forecasting that the UK will witness a return to healthy levels of employment by the end of 2009. However, a quarter (24%) think that the job market will get a worse, predicting that the UK will see unemployment figures rise by more than 10%. The latter appears to be the more likely outcome, as the job market typically suffers long after the economy begins to recover.
Yet consumers remain optimistic, with over 10 million (21%) UK consumers of the belief that the UK housing market will recover by the end of 2009. This is despite relative consensus in expert reports in recent months which have argued that Britain is extremely unlikely to see property prices recover to the highs witnessed pre-recession for some time
But when it comes to assessing the current state of the economy, Brits are considerably less positive, with over 16 million (34%) viewing this recession as the ‘worst in history’. And consumers appear to be in no doubt about where to point the finger of blame, with 51% attributing the current economic downturn to UK and American banks, while almost one in ten (9%) believe consumers’ excessive spending and borrowing brought on the gloom, compared with 25% blaming governments. However, 14% take a broader view, believing recession to be an inevitable cyclical event.
Louise Bond, personal finance expert at uSwitch.com comments:
“No one can accurately predict when the current climate will abate. However, consumers really need to be aware of the financial legacy a recession leaves, long after a return to positive growth. People are already making significant cutbacks in the ongoing struggle to meet their monthly outgoings in the face of rising bills and the depreciating value of their assets. Despite the doom and gloom, however, many consumers are seemingly exhibiting a ‘British Bulldog’ spirit amidst the financial crisis and finding ways to accentuate the positives. It is encouraging that consumers are also taking their financial future into their own hands by committing to changing their financial behaviours for the better.”
