I donít understand your point? Not being facetious.

That the BBC have used two very different headlines for the same story. One headline being more sensationalized than the other.

But itís not the same story? Itís two different countries, two difference economic situations.

Should every football match that results in a 1-0 win for the home team have an identical headline?

Even taking that aside, which one is the more sensationalised? Do you mean because it refers to 2012?

No, an economy can shrink but growth cannot shrink.

Economic growth can be positive or negative; this is how itís always been recorded - you are now blaming the BBC because you donít understand this.

Iím not signed up so canít read it, but the headline refers to an economy shrinking, which I already acknowledged in my post.

Growth cannot shrink - it can be positive or negative.

Your standard of debate is quite literally pumping words into google to try and find any article from around the world that might defend your incorrect position.

Iíve never come across someone describing a slow in growth as a shrink in growth, until the article from the financial powerhouse EuroNews - thanks for sharing.

Back to the point; the phrase Ďnegative growthí is commonplace in economics and is not the same as a shrinking economy - you took issue with the BBC using it because you didnít understand it... you will continue to defend your incorrect position, Iím sure.

Let me try one more time;

An economy can shrink, but growth cannot - they are not the same thing. Just because a sentence has the word Ďshrinkí in it, it does not support your point.

You are criticising the BBC for your own ignorance, and now seemingly have lost the ability to read.
