September World Economic Prospects

Each month Oxford Economics’ team of 160 economists updates its baseline global economic outlook for 200 countries using the Global Economic Model, the only fully integrated economic forecasting framework of its kind.

  • As a result, the world economy still looks likely to avoid recession although risks remain skewed to the downside.
