2013 Mid-Year Economic Outlook


Yesterday I had the opportunity to listen to Dun and Bradstreet’s Mid-Year Economic Outlook. Here are the highlights:

Emerging Markets are still extremely important to world Economic health. Growth in these markets is currently threatened by political risks and structural imbalances, including increased volatility and lack of structural reform. D&B has downgraded the global growth forecast.

Uncertainty continues in Europe with Southern Europe performing markedly poorer.

D&B is slightly more bullish for the US market, identifying these key factors driving a U.S. Recovery:

  • a rebounding housing market indicated by surging home sales and an uptick in new construction
  • improving employment numbers
  • the corporate sector continues to grow healthier with expanding capital investment.

The complete 2013 Mid-Year Review is available for free at the D&B website.
