The global economy continues to slow and is likely to disappoint again in 2013. A recession is unlikely to begin this year and our revised base case outlook is for a disappointing but poistive path for the economy. Global, U.S. and Canadian inflation rates are expected to remian low, and short-term interest rates are likely to stay at their current low levels in the developed economies through 2014. This differs from the consensus outlook, which has economic growth rates increasing steadily over 2013 and 2014 for almost every country.
