European Central Bank President Jean-Claude Trichet on Sunday cautioned against any new government stimulus plans and predicted the global economy will pick up in 2010. "We are seeing at this moment a slowdown in the drop in activity," he said on France's Europe-1 radio. Global economic activity should come "close to stability" later this year, and "we should register the recovery of growth during the next year," he said. He also welcomed signs of stabilization and renewed confidence in interbank lending. Trichet said any new stimulus packages would only drive governments deeper into debt that would saddle future generations. Stimulus packages already in place "are completely extraordinary. In our analysis, this is sufficient," he said. "There is a moment where you cannot spend more and accumulate more debts. We are at that moment," he said.
