Political uncertainty cause global slowdown
Global growth is slowing. The key questions for 2019 are: How fast and how much will the global economy slow, and what will policymakers do to counteract the negative sentiments spreading across the globe? We forecast a relatively mild, and manageable, slowdown. Central banks will move cautiously going forward and thus help counteract the negative effects of political uncertainties on growth. The risks to the outlook remain, however, on the downside.
