They Aren’t Blaming The US

According to TV New Zealand Aussies blamed for NZ recession

Slowing consumer spending in Australia has been blamed for helping to tip the New Zealand economy into recession for the first time in a decade.

The New Zealand economy shrank by 0.2% in the June quarter, marking the second successive quarter of contraction and signalling the technical definition of a recession.

This kiwi slowdown followed a 0.3% decline in gross domestic product (GDP) in the March quarter.

If consumer spending is slowing in Australia, they are nervous, and we have even more of the world involved in a bad case of the jitters. With all of the recalls and other problems in China, they will be drawing back, so the pieces are dropping into place for another Depression.
