At a news conference marking the start of their annual spring meetings, the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank said 70 percent of the global economy is caught in a slowdown. The IMF expects world economic growth to decline to 3.3 percent this year. The IMF and World Bank fear that trade tensions, debt distress, and poor policy making could make the situation even worse. IMF Chair Christine Lagarde also warned that developing countries are not benefiting from growth in industrial nations to the same extent they have in the past.

No more government 'stimulus' in the economy. It only causes economic hardship for the working class!

I have been working on a proposal which is aimed at encouraging responsible economic growth by employing a form of global quantitative easing but without incurring any debt. The idea is aimed at encouraging growth in the regions where there is the greatest potential for growth. The proposal is to allocate money to each country in the world on an annual basis at the rate of one dollar per person per day. So for example a country with a population of 100 million would be allocated 36.5 billion dollars per year. This is not a large amount for a developed economy and could be used to pay down the national debt but for a developing economy an extra one dollar per person per day offers the potential for significant development to ease deprivation.

We don't need no stinkin' WTO.
Wasn't it created to END tariffs? Here's the thing. Each nation MUST have autonomy to protect and encourage its own interests. Just as an individual would. If any government acts in ways which hurts other nations, than any other nation MUST be able to correct the situation is each sees fit.

"Free trade"
This system is not a free market. It is centralized, which is the exact opposite of free trade.

Isn't 2-3% a satisfactory economic growth rate?

All is going according to plan. Except for a couple of little problems. 1) Cooperative Hillary did not win the U.S. Presidential election. The Deep State's enemy, Donald Trump did. 2) The United Kingdom has acted outside of the European Collective and has decided it will make it's own Economic Future without Central Control. The World will likely continue to sink economically but the ease of remaking the world under the Rules of Socialism, may now not be a slam dunk.
