The growth of gross world product in 1987 was slightly above 3 per cent. Short-term trends indicate that the world economy will continue to expand during the next two years, but at a lower rate.

This invisible part of the world economy is slowly gaining recognition, although it is hard to assess because it does not have a market value.
