Global Economic Outlook Q4 2012
The world economy is at a crossroads. Every major region seems to be at a potential
turning point. In Europe, the leaders of the Eurozone are moving slowly toward more integration, while periodically fighting back against new crises. In the United States, slow growth continues, but various forces seem destined to push the economy either toward recession or faster growth. In China, the economy has landed softly, but the next steps depend on the decisions of a new leadership. And in India, the government has attempted to kick-start the reform process just as the economy seems to have stalled. At the very least, the next year will be an interesting one.
In this issue of the Global Economic Outlook, our economists from around the world offer their perspectives on these and other issues.
