Midyear Outlook: What’s Next for the Global Economy?

High debt levels and currency fluctuations continue to impact both developed and emerging markets. Watch as Capital Group economists Darrell SpenceJens Søndergaard and Andrew Dougherty discuss their views on the global outlook, including:

  • The U.S. economy’s slow-but-stable growth trajectory
  • Europe’s stubbornly anemic growth despite aggressive stimulus measures
  • The U.K.’s pivotal “Brexit” vote
  • China’s policy struggles amid the transition to a consumer-led economy
