Oxford Economics Global Risk Survey: Q2 2018

​Businesses have become significantly more pessimistic about the world economy over the past three months. There is now a widespread perception that risks to growth are skewed to the downside, based on the results of our latest survey of global risk perceptions.

A trade war remains the biggest downside concern. Against the backdrop of recent weaker data, concerns have also increased over a faltering in synchronised global growth in the wake of US rate rises and QE tapering in the Eurozone.

The survey was completed by 128 business contacts between 19th April and 2nd May. Results have informed the selection of economic scenarios for our Q2 Global Scenarios Service, due to be published in early June.
