    In its latest Global Economic Prospects report, the World Bank is projecting weak growth for the global economy as a whole this year because of Europe's debt crisis.

    The bank is calling on developing economies in eastern Europe, the Middle East, North Africa, Asia and Latin America to be on their guard to take the strain in case Europe's economic crisis gets worse.
