Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro decreed a two-month state of "economic emergency" Friday, seizing the initiative ahead of a key showdown in his standoff with the opposition in the oil-rich nation. Venezuela's economy contracted 4.5 percent in the first nine months of 2015, the central bank said Friday, the first official data in more than a year on the magnitude of the South American oil giant's recession.
