The Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR), the World Bank and the Centre for Finance and Development at the Graduate Institute Geneva, invite you to join the online debate on the World Bank's report Global Economic Prospects: A Subdued Recovery.
Although global economic output is recovering from the collapse triggered by COVID-19, it will remain below pre-pandemic trends for a prolonged period. Until the pandemic is brought under control around the world, the recovery will be subdued and may get derailed by several risks. In particular, the pandemic has exacerbated the risks associated with a decade-long wave of global debt accumulation. It is also likely to steepen the long-expected slowdown in potential growth over the next decade unless a major policy push for growth is made in many countries.
