There’s a lot of confusion in the world right now. Is there a way to capitalize on it with the right information, or is it time for your business to stand pat?

Following a long run of disturbing natural events, this year’s storm season in the mid-Atlantic hit epic proportions. Around the globe, there is both political uncertainty, which is relatively new, and sluggish economic growth, which people everywhere are becoming all too familiar with. Is now really the right time for decisive action?

Analysts think it’s now up to policymakers. The hot topics include: How to fix the banking sector and fiscal policy. How to wind down stimulus packages. How to assess and address the economic effects of climate change. And how to make growth more inclusive. These are all key, relevant issues, and the proposals to address them are smart and well-meaning. But they also seem to embrace the idea that, without brilliant policy change, our long run of sluggish growth is our new normal.

And yet, we remain upbeat in EDC’s latest Global Economic Outlook. Find out why, and if now is a good time to consider exporting — or exercise caution.
