A note on oil prices and the world economy in the IMF’s World Economic Outlook

The IMF’s most recent World Economic Outlook (IMF 2007) contains a box entitled “Understanding the Link Between Oil Prices and the World Economy”. In our view the analysis is misleading, and likely to confuse rather than clarify the question of the relationship between demand, supply, oil prices, and the world economy.
