The U.S. and many advanced economies still have balance-sheet excesses exposing them to renewed financial crisis. There is limited-room for policy makers to reverse any slump, and low inflation risks tipping into deflation in many parts of the world.

 

American companies are getting a historically large proportion of earnings from abroad and households are vulnerable to any bear market because their ratio of stocks to disposable income is higher than at any point aside from the start of this century.
