  • Invitation (PDF)

    The January Global Economic Prospects presents a comprehensive forecast that examines the broad-based economic recovery underway around the world.

    An analytical chapter questions whether the recent acceleration in activity can endure in light of the worrying global slowdown of potential output growth, and proposes remedies to halt and reverse this deceleration.

    The report also presents detailed regional outlooks for emerging market and developing economies and reviews of the impact of the 2014-2016 oil prices collapse and its effects.
