The signs of improvement have appeared around the world, but growth remains sluggish. Policymakers have begun to step away from emergency measures taken during the credit crisis but most are in no rush to tighten yet. Financial markets have returned to pre-Lehman risk and volatility levels, not just in the U.S., but in Canada, the Eurozone, Japan and the U.K. as well.
