Visie op 2014

De Nederlandse economie zal in 2014 niet groeien. De werkloosheid loopt verder op en het flauwe briesje in de rug door de wereldwijde groeiversnelling biedt niet genoeg tegenwicht voor de binnenlandse problemen. Die groeiversnelling komt voor meer dan de helft voor rekening van de economische prestaties van de VS en het bescheiden herstel in de eurozone.

After an ambitious start, China’s new leadership seems to have eased back on its reform drive. Maintaining a sufficiently strong growth rate is still the priority. For 2014, this implies only incremental reforms and a growth rate of around 7¼%.
