EXECUTIVE SUMMARY The global economy is showing signs of recovery, but at an uneven pace; global growth is expected to rise modestly to 2.6 percent in 2014, and an average 3.3 percent in 2015–17. Activity in high-income economies as a group expanded in the second quarter, but performance varied sharply across countries. In the United States, output rebounded strongly, supported by still accommodative monetary policy, easing ﬁscal consolidation, and rising employment, investment growth, and conﬁdence. Growth is projected at about 2 percent in 2014, rising to 3 percent in 2015.
