October 2012 Update for TIGER: Tracking Indexes for Global Economic Recovery

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on October 7, 2012

“In collaboration with the Financial Times (FT), Eswar Prasad and Karim Foda of Brookings have developed a set of composite indexes which track the global economic recovery. The Financial Times has produced the Tracking Indexes for the Global Economic Recovery (TIGER) interactive map, which appears on the Financial Times Web site. The global economic recovery is on the ropes, battered by political conflicts within and across countries, lack of decisive policy actions, and governments’ inability to tackle deep-seated problems such as unsustainable public finances that are stifling growth. The Brookings-FT Tiger index shows growth momentum has dissipated in nearly all major advanced and emerging market economies. The updated interactive map displays how fast individual G-20 economies are faring in global economic recovery.”
