Jan. 24 (Bloomberg) -- Former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan said he's worried that an ``inevitable'' global recession will create a backlash that forces countries to retreat from worldwide markets.

``Globalization has been extraordinarily valuable,'' Greenspan said in a speech in Vancouver sponsored by BMO Financial Group, also known as the Bank of Montreal. ``I'm concerned that if we get into some form of global recession, which after this extraordinary boom is inevitable at some point, that there will be a very significant retrenchment in the opening up of markets.''  

The odds of a U.S. recession ``have definitely picked up,'' Greenspan said today. ``The probability of a recession is 50 percent or more, but we're not there yet.''

Greenspan also said the U.S. housing slump may soon be over, benefiting the economy.

``We may be close to the point where actual sales levels are starting to bottom,'' he said. The ``sooner we get to stabilization'' of the housing sector, the better for the economy, he said.
