B&E Indicators

Issue Date - 27/10/2011
A bumpy road ahead?

The world economy is set to slow down in 2011, as government and central bank policies are tightened and key developed markets go through a deleveraging process. While both US & Europe are trying to avert a financial collapse, Japan has already lapsed back into recession after a devastating natural disaster. Considering this, IMF projects the world growth at around 4% in both 2011 and 2012, down from over 5% in 2010.

The Japanese effect pulls down averages

World trade has come under pressure in recent months, due to the tightening of interest rates in emerging markets and the disruption to production experienced as a result of the Japanese earthquake. The disaster disrupted supply chains not only within Japan but also internationally, particularly in the automotive sector. However, economists expect this to be a temporary blip, as opposed to a long term drawn out affair.
