US recession talk and EU helps kick the can

The yield curve for 3 month and 10 year US treasuries inverted for the first time since 2007. The markets seem a little spooked, with big falls in equities in the US on Friday.

Plus the latest evidence that the downturn in Germany might not be as short lived as had been hoped.
