World Economic Outlook Interim Assessment January 1993

by International Monetary Fund

Recent months have been characterized by flagging consumer and business confidence, weaker-than-expected economic activity--especially in Europe and Japan--and considerable tensions in foreign exchange markets. Despite encouraging signs of increased growth in the United States, these developments have cast new doubts on the prospects for recovery in the industrial world after what has already been two years of weak growth or recession in many countries. There are two main reasons for the pervasive sluggishness of growth. the most important is the deflationary impact in a number of countries of balance sheet adjustments by the private sector following the recent correction of inflated asset prices. an additional factor is the negative effects of high interest rates in Europe, stemming from the strong fiscal expansion that accompanied German unification, and inadequate progress toward inflation convergence and budgetary consolidation in a number of countries. the persistent currency turbulence since September, growing tensions over trade, and other indications of a reduced commitment to international policy cooperation in the major industrial countries have contributed to increased uncertainty. In these circumstances, there is a critical need for confidence-building economic policies to strengthen the prospects for growth without jeopardizing financial market stability or the considerable progress that has been achieved in reducing inflation.

World Economic Outlook October 1992: A Survey by the Staff of the International Monetary Fund

World economic activity showed signs of revival in the first half of 1992 as some major economies slowly began to emerge from the cyclical downturns of 1990-91. During the next 12 months, world growth is expected to continue to recover at a moderate pace: following stagnation in 1991, world output is projected to expand by 1 percent in 1992 and by 3 percent in 1993, close to the average growth rate during the past two decades but somewhat less than experienced after the two previous--and more pronounced--recessions in 1974-75 and 1981-82 (Chart 1). Recent progress in reducing inflation is likely to continue in most countries. the growth of world trade is forecast to rise from 2¼percent in 1991 to 6¾percent in 1993.
