Summary:

The Global Markets Research team believes early elections are the likely outcome after recent Senate elections in Italy delivered a fragmented parliament. The team explains the consequences of higher debt for the EU and revises their 2013 GDP estimates.

The Global Emerging Markets Research team compares today’s environment with 2002. They conclude that today’s valuations within GEM are more polarized and the potential downshift in Chinese growth expectations will likely disrupt GEM equities. US-based asset classes should benefit from GEM difficulties.
