In contrast to its January prognosis, the United Nations mid2024 report shows a better picture of the world economy. The research shows improved outlooks for the US and several significant emerging economies, including Russia, Brazil, and India. The prior estimate of 2.4% for global economic growth in 2024 has been revised to 2.7%, while the estimate for 2025 has been increased to 2.8%. The research also highlights problems faced by the worlds poorest countries and tiny island governments, including rising interest rates, problems paying off debt, geopolitical unrest, and climatic hazards. Persistent inflation over the 2% target in many wealthy nations indicates underlying economic instability, even though inflation has declined from its high in 2023. Concerns persist for Africa, with economic growth projected at 3.3%, lower than earlier forecasts, attributed to weak prospects in critical economies, debt distress, and high inflation rates.
