This quarterly examination of the short-term economic outlook for the world's major economies also contains an in-depth analysis of a number of issues that are relevant for understanding world economic trends and developments.
- World economic growth will slow down over the near term due, in part, to slower growth in both the United States and China.
- Economic prospects in Latin America will continue to be held back by the ongoing crisis in Venezuela and sluggish growth in Argentina.
- Growth in Europe will be restrained by uncertainty over Brexit, Italy’s high debt levels, and unrest in France.
