BlackRock’s GRIM 2023 PREDICTION
Welcome to BlackRock’s Grim 2023 Prediction.
It’s been 10 years since the world was last in crisis, and the future looks bleak. Economic output is in decline, unemployment is rising, and global debt levels are at their highest ever. As a result, governments are struggling to meet their debt obligations, and social unrest is growing.
In this environment, investors are looking for opportunities to protect their assets, but the outlook is not good. Interest rates are at historic lows, and stock markets continue to be volatile. The outlook for bonds is not much better, with yields near historic lows and credit spreads widening.
At the same time, inflation is beginning to pick up, driven by rising energy prices and other commodity costs. This is causing prices to rise, eating away at consumers’ purchasing power.
The outlook for the global economy is bleak. Growth is expected to slow, and it could take years for the world to recover from this crisis. It’s a grim prediction, but one that BlackRock believes is necessary to prepare investors for the coming storm.
Thanks for watching.
