Despite a slightly less optimistic outlook than in the Spring, the global economy remains buoyant, powered above all by strong activity in the US. Global growth should remain fairly robust by post-crisis standards throughout the forecast period. However, the risks to the outlook have continued to rise, and are tilted heavily towards the downside. Tighter US policy, a possible Chinese slowdown, and uncertainty around Italy and the eurozone are the main things to watch.
