Recent US economic growth figures coupled with steadying European, Chinese – and potentially even Japanese – economies, all point to a strengthening recovery and reasons for optimism. However, uncertainty remains as the US Federal Reserve ‘tapers’ its monetary stimulus, global imbalances persist, and several emerging economies have experienced sharp currency fluctuations. How will needed adjustments impact long-term interest rates, private sector investment, and key sectors such as mortgages and global finance? What should be done to manage these challenges and create a sustainable environment?
