    Pedestrians walk past a discount store on Moore Street in Dublin in this July 6, 2011 file photo. Ireland's government oversaw a return to mild economic growth last year but it is quickly learning that its own policies alone will not fix Ireland's debt pile, which will peak at 120 percent of GDP next year. The country desperately needs two things: a stronger global economy so its exporters can begin selling more stuff, and a normalization of sovereign debt markets so Dublin can begin borrowing again and exit its international bailout on schedule next year. Neither appear likely. Picture taken July 6, 2011. To match Insight IRELAND-CONTAGION/ REUTERS/Cathal McNaughton/Files (IRELAND - Tags: BUSINESS POLITICS)

    FILE - In a Thursday, Aug. 5, 2010 file photo, an oil pump works in the Persian Gulf desert oil fields of Sakhir, Bahrain. The price of oil plunged below $100 per barrel for the first time in more than two months, and a drop in gasoline prices can't be far behind. Oil fell by more than four percent after a weak jobs report added to recent signs that the global economy is weakening, meaning demand for oil should slacken. At the same time, there is mounting evidence that world oil supplies are growing. (AP Photo/Hasan Jamali, File)

    A vendor rests next to sacks of onions at a wholesale vegetable market in Kolkata in this March 16, 2012 file photo. The global economy is set to expand by a modest 3.3 percent this year as a still-smouldering euro zone debt crisis and a relatively slow U.S. recovery continue to leave Asia as the main driver of growth, Reuters polls showed on April 19, 2012. Asian economies, as well as Latin America, are expected to pick up the pace later this year, driven by monetary stimulus after a soft patch - a boost Western policymakers are increasingly unable to provide.
