Hide / Show Abstract

Overall, the global economy continues to run in low gear. At 3% over the past 7 years, the pace of global growth is more than 1 percentage point below the 2000-07 period, and about ¾ of a percentage point below the average of the 15 years prior to the financial crisis. Global trade growth also remains below trend. Around the world, private business investment is still just idling along. Eleven million more people remain unemployed in the OECD area alone, compared to 2007.
