Global growth set to surprise in 2015

In this infographic Schroders economists take a look at the major events that could impact on the global economy in 2015 and forecast the potential outcomes.

2015 has already been an interesting year for the global economy with the European Central Bank announcing a quantitative easing package to help reignite  its economic recovery, Greece voting in an anti-austerity party leading to worries of a potential “Grexit” from the euro zone and China’s slowdown raising hopes of further stimulus to boost its growth.

 

Conclusion

While the situation with Greece remains unpredictable and the outcome of the ECB’s decision to announce further stimulus delicately balanced, the benefit of falling energy costs leaves Schroders economists optimistic over the global growth outlook in 2015.
