The head of the International Monetary Fund, Christine Lagarde, warned Tuesday the global economy may be slowing more than thought just over a month ago.
There are "some glimpses of more somber trends. Recent data, for example, suggest some slowdown in growth," Lagarde said in a speech at the Brookings Institution, a Washington think tank, according to the prepared text.
The IMF managing director recalled that the Fund in April projected the global economy would grow 3.3 percent in 2013, but that she had spoken of "the fragile and uneven recovery that is taking place."
