Global economic forecast

Global Economic Forecast (EIU)
Attached is the latest numerical EIU global forecast of the world economy and  its major components. In a nutshell, things have picked up in the Western economies this year but will drop again next year and then there will be a gradual rise. The developing economies, although volatile, show higher growth rates.
The second document then gives a few more details behind the numbers.
Genesis advice to individual organisations seeking to survive and grow is to dig deeper into the statistics (in-house and published) to discover where are the real opportunities. As you increase the level of granularity, it will be apparent that there is significant deviation around the averages. The identification of winning and losing sectors, sub-sectors and companies will highlight where are the areas of opportunities for growth.
