Moody’s Says Global Political Fluctuations Hurting the Growth

Sharing is caring!

While looking at global socio-political-economical scenario, leading financial market research firm Moody’s have expressed their observations. They have made a statement by pointing out an increasingly unfriendly global political environment with tensions between the US and China over trade, India and Pakistan over Kashmir, EU and the UK over Brexit are “growth-diminishing”.

The antagonistic political environment is weakening global and national institutions, lowering the shock-absorption capacity of sovereigns with high debt burdens and low fiscal buffers, it said.

“While the starkest example is clearly the trade war between the US and China, distracting and, in some cases, growth-diminishing tensions have also risen in the Gulf, between Japan (A1 stable) and Korea (Aa2 stable),

India and Pakistan (B3 negative), the US and the EU, and the EU and the UK,” the ratings agency said.

The slowdown, Moody’s said, partly reflects cyclical factors, partly structural drivers, including demographic trends.
