The international financial crisis, which started in the summer of 2007 with the subprime crisis in the United States, developed into a world economic crisis by 2008. Indeed, most industrialized countries entered recession in 2008, leading to global slowdown in economic activity. The IMF's forecasts in 2009 predicted a lower growth rate of world production, falling from 3.25% in 2008 to -1.25% in 2009, before returning to positive territory in 2010 at 2%, thanks to fiscal stimuli and various relief measures for the financial sector, applied through the world and particularly in advanced economies.
