    > TOKYO – A key Japanese economic index fell in August and the government on Monday downgraded its view to "Worsening", indicating the export-reliant economy might face slipping into recession.

    > The separate index for leading economic indicators, a gauge of the economy a few months ahead that's compiled using data such as job offers and consumer sentiment, dropped 2.0 points from July, the Cabinet Office said.

    > The government will later examine the economy comprehensively with professors and economists on a panel and officially define the country's economic cycle.
