Global Markets

The global economy continues to lose momentum. Even though U.S. growth slowed from 2.9 percent in 2006 to about 2.3 percent in 2007, the balance of forces driving the economy, both positive and negative, remains largely offsetting. However, the loss in economic momentum is not limited to the United States—and, in some very real sense, the adjustments needed to stabilize economic activity in the face of slower growth are farther along in the United States than elsewhere. The greater risks to the global economy may actually lie outside of the U.S. economy.
