Ben Bernanke sees “green shoots” of recovery

1 Mins

“I do see green shoots – not everywhere – but certainly in some of the markets that we’ve been functioning in,” he said.

Here in London, shares climbed for the third day in the row, with the FTSE 100 index climbing another 2.9 per cent after gaining 6.3 per cent last week.

Gordon Brown, however, was less sanguine, saying that the “speed at which we recover” would depend on what deals could be done at the G20 summit next week.
