High Water Mark For Global Economy Is 2018: Moody’sRupert Hargreaves
2017 marked the first year since the financial crisis that the world experienced a synchronized economic recovery. G-20 nations saw estimated growth of 3.2% in 2017, above the long run average.
Other indicators also point to rising demand. The Baltic Dry Index hit a four-year high and the eurozone economy, previously the sick region of the world, outpaced the US in terms of economic growth.
