RSM Publishes Second Edition Of The Global Real Economy

Economic Publication Outlines Four Biggest Global Risks Facing the Middle Market

RSM US LLP (“RSM”) — the nation’s leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market — recently released the second edition of The Global Real Economy, a semi-annual global edition of the firm’s flagship publication, The Real Economy. Led by RSM Chief Economist Joe Brusuelas, The Global Real Economy is part of a larger effort by RSM to provide clients with actionable insights and middle market-focused analysis around critical international business issues.

This edition of The Global Real Economy includes five articles from chief economist Joe Brusuelas; Brendan Quirk, RSM’s regional leader for Latin America and Dr. Suresh Surana, founder of RSM India, on the following topics:

Four global risks facing the middle market:

• Changes to India’s foreign direct investment rules create major opportunity for middle market

• Less than zero: the risks around negative interest policy

• Crucial Argentina reforms put country on path to a more stable economy

• Survey indicates middle market companies see BEPS as a significant challenge

“We strongly believe that the middle market needs a voice in the economic community on important issues,” said Brusuelas. “This edition of The Global Real Economy embodies that mission through in-depth examination of topics like the specter of negative interest rates and changes to foreign investment rules in emerging markets.”
