March 31, 2018 - Growth Improves as Central Banks Withdraw

The global economy is growing at its fastest pace since 2010. For the first time in many years there is coordinated growth around the world, with strengthening economies in North America, Europe, Asia and emerging markets. Overall global growth is expected to be in the range of 3.8% in 2018. Increasing fears of a global trade war initiated by the United States, however, could cloud the overall economic outlook. The implementation of tariffs by President Trump will no doubt trigger retaliatory action by several countries, particularly from China.
