Dangerously Close to Recession

Joachim Fels & Manoj Pradhan, Morgan Stanley

Ever more BBB: We are cutting our global GDP growth forecasts by a combined full percentage point in 2011-12, to 3.9% from 4.2% in 2011, and to 3.8% from 4.5% in 2012. We now see growth in the developed market (DM) economies averaging only 1.5% this year and next (down from 1.9% and 2.4% previously) - markedly more sluggish than the 20-year trend growth rate in DM of 2.3%, and more than a full percentage point below the 2.6% rate in 2010 when the world rebounded from the Great Recession. While we had been calling for a BBB recovery in DM all along, the path now looks even more bumpy, below-par and brittle than previously thought.

Foreign Central Banks on Hold Too

John E. Silvia, Chief Economist, Wells Fargo

Recent data suggest that many other major central banks will probably refrain from raising rates for the foreseeable future as well. As discussed on page 4, weak economic growth in Japan likely means that the Bank of Japan (BoJ) will not be hiking rates anytime soon. Indeed, essentially all analysts, ourselves included, look for the BoJ to remain on hold through at least the end of 2012.

United States – Running Scared

Chris Jones, Economist,TD Bank Financial Group

Market volatility was in full swing on both sides of the Atlantic this week as a crisis of confidence over the health of western economies intensified. The German DAX closed down 2.2% on Friday to end the week down nearly 9%. As of writing, the S&P was off 5.3% on the week. In a bid for safety, 10-year Treasury yields briefly dipped below 2% in intraday trading Thursday, a first since at least 1954.
