What does the IMF prediction tell us?

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) is predicting global growth to remain close to three percent for the next half a decade, its lowest medium-term prediction since the 1990s. The comments were made recently at the annual spring meeting of the World Bank and the #IMF which kicked off this week in Washington, D.C. What more does the IMF say about global growth? Have the recent banking failures impacted world's economy? And how will this slowed growth impact debt relief in low-income countries?

Guests in this edition of Dialogue are Prof. Iain Begg from the London School of Economics and Political Science, Wang Dan, chief economist at Hang Seng Bank (China), and Dr. William Lee, chief economist at the Milken Institute.
