OECD: The world is facing the most severe economic recession in nearly a century

The Paris-based agency said Wednesday it expects the global economy to contract 6% this year before rebounding in 2021, a prediction that ranks among the gloomiest offered by multilateral financial institutions. It warned that a second wave of coronavirus infections would lead to even more disruption and economic scarring.
