The year 2012 challenged Bloomberg photographers with a variety of global economic stories, from Japan Airlines' trading debut to Swiss banks losing employees, from Brazil's Petrobras reporting its first quarterly loss in 13 years to the grand opening of the 675,000-square-foot Barclay's Center in Brooklyn, New York.
