For The Year Ahead
Will economic activity recover in 2002?                                            Yes...
 Near term news flow will be mostly negative, but...
 Expect news to turn more positive as we go through the year
 Very easy monetary conditions and falling energy prices are the main drivers

Will the policy stance remain stimulative?                                         Yes…
 Little upward pressure on interest rates as inflation outlook remains benign
 Large fiscal stimulus expected, especially in the US
 Scope for major policy changes in Japan remain limited

Will equity markets rally in this environment?                                     Yes…
 Outlook for corporate profits improving, not yet fully priced in to markets
 Falling levels of risk aversion will also provide a boost to markets
 However, sector level valuation measures would suggest that limited
  upside exists in Technology given recent strong rally
