World Economic Survey 1984

Current Trends and Policies in the World Economy

After the most protracted global economic recession since the 1930s, the prospects for sustained and broad-based growth are still not satisfactory. This unresolved issue is the focus of World Economic Survey 1984. A major development in 1983 was the recovery in North America. The recovery of the developed market economies as a whole is expected to become more widespread this year, but further strengthening beyond 1984 is uncertain.
