World Trade Is Down

Most recessions are local not global. So trade doesn't decline worldwide.

This recession is broad, and the result is that world trade may drop for the first time in a generation.

There is a little bit of a chicken-and-egg problem here though: it isn't clear if trade is down because people aren't buying, or because shippers can't credit to finance their trips.
