Q4 2016 Global economy: US resurgence, China resilience, Brexit defiance


Q4 2016 Global economy: US resurgence, China resilience, Brexit defiance

Report summary

After a difficult start to the year, the global economy has strengthened in the second half of 2016. A number of shocks hit the global economy stemming from political sources. The UK voted to leave the EU and the US elected Donald Trump its next president. Arguably, more surprising is how these shocks have been absorbed. Elsewhere, China's growth remains on course to hit the official government target this year. Finally, the OPEC deal offers some relief to governments of oil producing economies of the Middle East. Will this momentum be sustained through 2017?
