Economists and politicians hope to identify tentative signs of recovery in leading economies during the second half of 2009, as stimulus measures from governments and action on interest rates by central banks begin to kick in.
But recent data suggest it may take a little longer. Meanwhile, the World Economic Forum’s latest report warns of the risks of a fiscal crisis, created by the very government spending intended to rescue economies from the turmoil in the global financial system.
So, is the worst nearly over? Or is there still a way to go? Recently returned from Davos, Nouriel Roubini, chairman of RGE Monitor and professor of Economics at New York University, will answer readers’ questions on the outlook for the global economy and its impact on markets from 1400 GMT on Monday February 9.
