IMF predicts world growth of 3.4 percent this year and 3.6 percent in 2018The International Monetary Fund on Monday boosted its estimates for US growth on expected stimulus spending by the incoming Trump administration, but kept the forecast for global growth unchanged. The IMF's quarterly World Economic Outlook (WEO) however said the forecasts for 2017 and 2018 are beset by uncertainty and risk, including signs of rising protectionism. It sees world growth of 3.4 percent this year and 3.6 percent in 2018, unchanged from the October report, as concerns about slowing in major developing economies were offset by the recovery in advanced economies and China.

FILE - In this Tuesday, Oct. 4, 2016, file photo, International Monetary Fund Economic Counsellor Maurice Obstfeld speaks at a news conference during the World Bank/IMF Annual Meetings, at IMF headquarters in Washington. The IMF announced Monday, Jan. 16, 2017, it is raising its forecast for the U.S. economy in 2017 and in 2018, reflecting an expected boost from the economic policies of President-elect Donald Trump. "The global economic landscape started to shift in the second half of 2016," Obstfeld said, helped by a rebound in manufacturing activity in many countries and the financial market rally that started with Trump's November election victory. (AP Photo/Jose Luis Magana, File)WASHINGTON (AP) — The International Monetary Fund on Monday raised its forecast for the U.S. economy over the next two years, saying President-elect Donald Trump's policies should boost economic growth, particularly in 2018. But officials warned that if Trump's protectionist trade proposals set off a trade war, that could be "quite destructive" for the global economy.

The inquests, being held collectively at the Royal Courts of Justice, are expected to last around six weeks.
