Swiss economy mirrors weakness in eurozone

The Swiss economy unexpectedly shrank in the third quarter, blighted by a drop in exports and weak domestic demand.
No economists surveyed by Bloomberg had forecast the contraction of 0.2 percent -- the median prediction was for an expansion of 0.4 percent. The economy grew 2.4 percent from a year earlier.
