The global economy may not be strong enough to withstand risks from increased trade barriers, overblown stock markets or potential currency volatility, according to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.The OECD expects global expansion to reach 3.3 percent this year, up from 3 percent in 2016, and pick up again in 2018 .Though not named in the report, some of the concerns are related to the policies of U.S. President Donald Trump's administration, including his threats to impose tariffs on nations he deems to have an unfair advantage, The OECD also said there's a "disconnect" between equity valuations and the outlook for the real economy, with the market performance partly linked to anticipation of a Trump stimulus package.The OECD highlighted potential exchange rate volatility from the shift in the interest-rate cycle.
