FILE - In this Sept. 22, 2011 photo, Andrew Liveris, Chairman and CEO of Dow Chemical, speaks at the Clinton Global Initiative, in New York. Deteriorating financial conditions in Europe are weighing down companies' profits. And hope of salvation from other regions _ such as China, Brazil and the United States _ is starting to dim as those economies also slow. "The new reality is that this world is not in a normal growth mode," Liveris said on a conference call Thursday, July 26, 2012. "And it does not appear that we will see this for at least 12 to 24 months." (AP Photo/Mark Lennihan, File) less
