Which sectors can weather the economic crisis? – DW.DE

Business prospects for 2012 are bad. It’s not just Europe that’s in crisis. Emerging economies are also slowing down. But there are a number of sectors and countries able to flourish, despite these conditions.

The bad news first: Analysts don’t know which industry branch is going to flourish. They say everything is much too interconnected, and the global economy’s course remains too much of an uncertainty.
