With a 50% drop in commodity prices from their high point in 2011 causing a
30% fall in the terms of trade, per capita real national income contracting
for five quarters in a row, and GDP growth at an anaemic 2%, no growth is
just as likely as slow growth.

Last year's growth in global trade was 3.6%, almost half of the 7% growth
that was the norm before the onset of the Great Recession in 2008.
