U.S., Japan stimulus should power 2nd half 2021 recovery-IMF chief economist
Economic stimulus approved in the United States and Japan at the end of last year will help to power recovery in these economies in the second half of 2021, IMF chief economist Gita Gopinath said on Wednesday.
Gopinath told Yahoo Finance in a live interview that this may prompt some upgrades of economic forecasts in some parts of the world. But she said recovery in some developing countries could be delayed until 2022 by limited availability of vaccines.
