A glance at 2023

In this edition of the Economic Brief, we will analyse economists’ forecasts for economic growth in 2023. Comparing visions for quarter 1 with those for quarter 4, we will consider how growth profiles for Western economies will evolve over the course of the year and look into reasons for any particular developments. We will also consider the priorities of the central banks, notably the Federal Reserve, and the actions it may take for the year.
