The Conference Board

Despite the global recession, the world economy will grow faster in the second decade of the 21st century than it did in the first, The Conference Board reported today.

The global economy will grow at 4.4 percent from 2010-2020, about 0.7 percentage point faster than 2000-2010 and 0.3 percentage point faster than 2000-2008, according to the second edition of The Conference Board Global Economic Outlook, providing projections of output growth for 2011, 2011-2015, and 2015-2020 for the global economy, the economies of 11 major regions, aggregated advanced economies, and aggregated emerging and developing economies. Advanced economies will account for less than 1 percentage point of global growth from 2010-2020, while 3.4 percentage points will come from emerging economies. Growth in emerging and developing economies in 2010-2020 will be more than three times faster than growth in advanced economies.

"The emerging world's catch-up potential is unlikely to slacken before the end of the decade," said Bart van Ark, Senior Vice President and Chief Economist of The Conference Board. "Yet while emerging economies are clearly driving global growth, they also host its biggest downside risk. For example, the emergence of uncontrolled inflation or a mishandling of corrections to overvalued assets in China or India could reduce global growth for 2010-2020 by as much as 2 percentage points."

Among other key findings:

China may have a larger GDP (PPP-converted) than the United States by 2012.
India will double its share of global output between 2000 and 2020, but its overall impact on global growth remains much smaller than China's.
Western Europe (the original 15 EU member states) will stay at modest 1.5 percent growth in 2011. Germany, the Nordic countries and Benelux will perform at the higher end (above 2 percent); the United Kingdom and France will be in the middle range (1.5-2 percent); most of Southern Europe and Ireland will see growth of less than 1 percent or may even contract.
Growth in China will moderate only slightly going into 2011. India will add almost a full percentage point to its growth rate.

The Conference Board Productivity Brief 2011, to be published in January, will provide latest estimates of output and productivity growth and levels for more than 123 countries.
