Week Ending 11th April 2014

Week Ending 11 April 2014.

The IMF and the World Bank hold their spring meeting in Washington this weekend and ahead of it the IMF released its biannual World Economic Outlook. It revised higher the 2014 GDP forecast for the UK, US, the Euro-Area and Canada, whilst downgrading its expectations for Japan and for Russia. Whilst it appears to be pleased with the Western part of the world, the IMF expressed concerns over China’s reliance on a credit-fuelled drive for growth, suggesting that it’s putting the world economy at risk and the Chinese government should rein in “rapid” credit growth.There was no mention, of course, in respect of the Federal Reserve growing its balance sheet liability at a 30% annualised pace over the past few years.
