The article provides a global economic outlook for 2007. The U.S. soft landing scenario is expected as influenced by U.S. growth recovery at an annualized rate of 3.5 percent in the final quarter of 2006 and a decline in inflation. There are still risks to the positive economic scenario because of contradictory inflation, labor market and growth data.
