In an interdependent world, agents make forecasts about other economies as well as their own. This paper examines the nowcasts made by the French Central Bank and the French business community of the US economy during the Great Recession. Textual analysis is used because quantitative forecasts are not available. The results indicate that the French agents understood the general trends of the US economy during this period.
