April 2024 update to TIGER: A feeble recovery characterized by multiple divergences
Brookings
2024.04.16
The global economic recovery is being weighed down by geopolitical conflicts, protectionist policies, and persistent inflation. The latest update of the Brookings-FT Tiger indexes shows that global growth has flatlined, although there are glimmers of a positive turn in some countries’ economic fortunes in the year ahead.

The world economy is currently characterized by multiple divergences, starting with divergent growth trajectories of the major economies. The U.S. and India have maintained strong growth momentum while China’s economy is slowing down. Such contrasts are apparent even within the eurozone, where Germany continues flirting with recession while Italy and Spain have performed better. The second divergence is that between real economic performance and financial markets, with equity markets surging even in some countries whose economic performance remains sub-par and where monetary policy remains tight. The third is improving household and business confidence in many countries despite heightened uncertainty engendered by geopolitical stresses and unsettled domestic politics in countries facing elections.
