The CountryWatch Macroeconomic Forecast projects the major macroeconomic variables of each of the established countries in the world over a 20 year period. In addition this Forecast provides five years of history. These variables include GDP and its principal components: consumption, investment spending, government spending, exports and imports. In addition, the CountryWatch Macroeconomic Forecast makes projections on inflation, interest rates, inflation rates, foreign exchange rates, fiscal policy including tax rates, and the primary components of the balance of payments as well as foreign exchange reserves. The real GDP and inflationary trends are used in an integrated fashion in each of the other forecast segments to provide a forecast that is integrated across all segment lines ( i.e. the GDP that drives the demand for energy products is the same one that drives demand for metals and agriculture).
