Growth prospects for rich world steadily rising

LONDON (Reuters) – Optimism about a stronger recovery among the world’s richest nations is gradually rising, Reuters polls show, unfazed by a European debt crisis that started in Greece and gripped markets in a chokehold last week.

While the United States, Japan, the euro zone and Britain are still lagging growth in emerging market powerhouses like India and China, they are on a solid path to recovery, according to surveys of over 250 economists taken May 7-13.

Global stock market rally has further to run

LONDON (Reuters) – An explosive rally in world stock markets this year from multi-year lows in March has lost some momentum but most major indexes will rise further by end-2010, according to a Reuters poll of more than 200 strategists.

The quarterly outlook on world stock markets found most analysts remaining optimistic, with only a small minority looking for indexes to trade lower than where they are now by the end of next year.
