The debate in the world’s financial hubs has shifted from whether the global economy is in a slowdown to how long and deep the downturn will be.
Central banks are expected to unveil fresh stimulus in the coming months to revive global growth but economists warn that a number of rising risks from a no deal Brexit to a prolonged trade war threaten to completely derail the world economy. Here are the three charts that should concern investors most.
China set to suffer worst growth on record
On Monday, Beijing is expected to reveal that China’s ailing economy has suffered its worst growth on record as its trade spat with the US drags on.
Economists expect its growth to stutter to 6.2pc year-on-year in the second quarter, the weakest pace of expansion since the country starting revealing its quarterly growth data in 1992.
More woeful factory and trade data out of China and other Asian bellwethers in recent weeks suggest that the world’s second-largest economy is struggling to stage a recovery.
Last week it was revealed that Chinese imports suffered a sharper-than-feared 7.3pc year-on-year drop in June while Singapore, which is considered a key indicator for the health of global trade, suffered a shock contraction. Its economy shrank by an annualised 3.4pc, its biggest slump in output in seven years.
