Prakash Loungani | January 27, 2016

The IMF recently revised down its growth forecasts, making large changes in the forecasts for some emerging markets, in particular Brazil and oil-producing countries (such as Nigeria and Saudi Arabia).

We conclude with a look at the growth-unemployment link for 101 countries around the globe.
