The head of the IMF sounds the alarm.
“There are two major categories of risk to the global economy,” said IMF chief Christine Lagarde in an interview with Bloomberg TV.
“The first is related to trade intensities that continue last year and involve the risk of retaliation. Addressing these risks requires a reduction in tension and a dialogue to reform the rules of international trade and to improve the system in its present form. The second category of risks is about financing, as there will be tighter monetary measures in the US due to the improvement of its economy, but it will have an impact on the economies of the world, “the IMF chief said.
