19:58 EDTSNEJapan's GDP contracts 1.6% in third quarter, WSJ says
Japan's economy has slumped into a recession in the third quarter as a sales tax increase resulted in firms cutting inventory and capital investment, says the Wall Street Journal. According to the Wall Street Journal report, Japan's real GDP in Q3 retreated 1.6% on an annualized basis against a median forecast for a 2.25% expansion. The setback in the country's growth will likely result in Prime Minster Shinzo Abe postponing a second sales tax increase, added the Wall Street Journal. Reference Link
