EIU Global Forecast - Suleimani's death marks turning point

The US decision to assassinate Qassem Suleimani, the commander of the elite Quds Force of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, on January 3rd has taken US-Iran tensions to a new level. At first glance, the US strike appears at odds with the reluctance of Donald Trump, the US president, to drag the US into a new war in the Middle East. However, from Mr Trump's perspective, it represents a calculated response to the recent escalation in tensions between the US and Iran, which culminated in an attack against the US embassy in Iraq by Iran-backed militia in late December. As the embassy attack illustrates, these tensions have mainly unfolded in Iraq, a country where both the US and Iran wield significant influence and which represents the new battlefield between both countries.

The world this year

Warnings about a slowing world economy were a consideration for the Federal Reserve when it decided to cut interest rates for the first time since the financial crisis. Two more reductions followed. Mr Trump quarrelled openly with the Fed for not cutting sooner, calling it a “stubborn child”.
