G20 Economic Forecast 2013-2015 and up to 2060
Present dashboard integrates most recent medium and long term forecasts of key economic indicators for G20 countries estimated by major international organizations, namely, World Bank, IMF, United Nations, OECD, European Commission and the Economist Intelligence Unit.
The data presented covers projections of real GDP growth, characterizing country's output of final goods and services; consumer price inflation, as a measure of price level movements; unemployment rate or percent of those willing and able to work but cannot find it; current account balance, providing an idea of a country's position in the international exchange; government debt that shows relative value of government liabilities affecting its stability and confidence level.
Analysis based on such cross-sectional data gives comprehensive picture of a country's performance in the "open-economy" conditions, which is becoming even more comprehensive with the usage of different sources of information. This is because each provider of forecasts makes its projections based on different assumptions concerning fiscal and monetary policies of the countries under review, interest and exchange rates, oil and non-oil commodity prices and so on. Taking all these things into consideration could well help to build on robust future projections.
