Now the world is pivoting again, in a cycle of “risk rotating to emerging markets.” This comprehensive, even-handed report from the International Monetary Fund offers reams of data and charts that outline how global markets are shifting, why liquidity remains a challenge and how rising corporate debt in emerging markets poses new risks.
