The world economy took a pounding during the financial crisis but seemed to be getting back on its feet over the last year (IMF 2010). Now the Greek debt crisis has rocked it back on its heels. Despite all the portents of doom, however, the world economy has in fact been quietly mending itself. This is not to say that the recovery is firmly entrenched or that few risks remain, but there are distinct glimmers of hope. The economic picture looks far better now than it did a year ago.
