Description
"The State of the World Economy"

The world economy was expected to surge in 2004, fuelled by strong growth in the United States, China and India. But with a persistent rise in oil prices throughout the year, the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs revised the growth expectations downward. What are the current global economic trends? What are the implications of world economic growth being fuelled by the twin engines of China and India, in addition to the U.S.? What relation is there between growing the global economy and maintaining the promises made to the world's poor? These are some of the questions addressed by the guest on this episode of World Chronicle: José Antonio Ocampo, the UN's Under-Secretary-General for Economic and Social Affairs.
