  7. 7. ECONOMIC BACKDROP IN 2012 – BASE CASE• Slowdown in world GDP growth to 2.3% annual rate. Downturn in both OECD and most EMs. Deceleration in global industrial production more marked.• USD generally stronger this year, e.g. forecast average USD/EUR of 1.28.• Eurozone debt crisis continues in 2012, with only slow progress towards resolution. However, a break-up of the single currency is avoided.• Short-term interest rates in nearly all major economies remain at ultra-low levels throughout 2012 and at close to zero if not negative in real terms.• Fed eventually enacts further monetary stimulus; ECB takes additional measures to deal with sovereign debt and banking crisis in Europe. Monetary policy loosened in key EMs.• Inflation rates in most of the developed world remain low but inflation expectations are raised by central banks’ monetary easing and debt monetisation.
