The year 2016 brought unremarkable, although somewhat better, economic activity around the world. Economists at the International Monetary Fund are guardedly optimistic in their predictions for 2017 and beyond, which they admit are subject to a large number of unknowns, chief among them the cross-border impacts of the Trump administration’s policies. However events unfold, the job of policy makers won’t be easy: Ensuring financial stability and improving work opportunities and living standards for those whom globalization has overlooked will require wide-reaching cooperation. getAbstract recommends this timely analysis to investors, executives and economists.
