World Economic Outlook (WEO)

Tensions from the Two-Speed Recovery: Unemployment, Commodities, and Capital Flows

The World Economic Outlook (WEO) presents the IMF staff's analysis and projections of economic developments at the global level, in major country groups (classified by region, stage of development, etc.), and in many individual countries. It focuses on major economic policy issues as well as on the analysis of economic developments and prospects. It is usually prepared twice a year, as documentation for meetings of the International Monetary and Financial Committee, and forms the main instrument of the IMF's global surveillance activities.

Global Financial Stability Report

The Global Financial Stability Report provides semiannual assessments of global financial markets and addresses emerging market financing in a global context. Chapters of the latest GFSR include:

• How to Address the Systemic Part of Liquidity Risk

• Housing Finance and Financial Stability—Back to Basics?

The GFSR Market Update (Formerly known as the Financial Market Update) is an online bulletin that covers developments in both mature and emerging markets. It is published twice a year -- in the summer and winter -- and complements the Global Financial Stability Report.
