The World Bank thinks 2014 is going to be a good year for many global economies. Last year’s 2.4 percent growth could increase to 3.2 percent this year. 

The BBC’s economics correspondent Andrew Walker joins Marketplace Morning Report host David Brancaccio to discuss the report and the speculation that swirled around the Fed’s tapering.
