Finally, the report’s tables of summary statistics contain a lot of interesting information – in particular, data on major economies’ recent GDP growth and forecasts for the next two years. The fastest-growing economies in 2021 were Argentina, Turkey, and India, which expanded by 10%, 9.5%, and 8.3%, respectively. But growth after a crash needs to be interpreted carefully. Much of last year’s growth merely reflected the depth of the pandemic-induced downturn of 2020, as economies climbed back toward their earlier GDP level. In 2020, Argentina’s economy contracted by 9.9% and India’s by 7.3% – making them, along with Mexico, the worst-performing major economies that year.
