Oil and Growth

This year has started out with a macro-driven wave of global optimism leading to a rally on financial markets. Because Russia is linked to the rest of the world via external trade and capital flows, global improvement supports Russia’s economy and creates upside risks for the country’s 2012 macroeconomic forecast.
