    "De economie is volop in beweging. En de huidige recessie is de eerste waarin de consument massaal online is en het internet gebruikt om op zoek te gaan naar informatie over producten en diensten. De Google Barometer geeft u inzicht in de algemene stemming op internet, gebaseerd op de zoekopdrachten die door grote aantallen mensen zijn uitgevoerd."

    "Amsterdam - The Dutch version of internet search engine Google launched new software Tuesday which it claims can assess the state of the local economy. The economic barometer, as the feature is called, checks the number of times people using Google are searching for vacation deals, mortgages, loans, cars, jobs and or online shops.

    The numbers are combined with other data from Insights for Search, Google's database about people's search behavior.

    Dutch Google director Pim van der Feltz said his Amsterdam-based subsidiary of the US company does not want to compete with the Dutch Central Bureau of Statistics, which traditionally releases monthly statistics about consumer confidence.

    But he said the new service provided a "realistic impression" of the state of the Dutch economy."
