With the stock market more volatile than ever and the biggest overall drop in 2018 in a decade, concerns in the U.S. are growing over contracting economic growth and the economy slowing down.

Across the Atlantic, Europeans are facing similar realities: Breitbart reports that German factory orders dropped, a good indicator of the overall economic conditions in the eurozone. The Brexit situation is far from resolved with it looking more and more likely the United Kingdom will crash out of the European Union without a deal, with ramifications for economies across the globe.

Heading into the new year, we should probably be expecting more economic turbulence and decline.
