Most recent recessions have resulted from asset price busts and other financial shocks, whose negative effects on output took time to develop and even more time to unwind. By contrast, the 2020 slump resulted from a health crisis, whose negative effect on output was huge and immediate but also quickly reversible, said Hatzius.

In a presentation to the Wall Street Journals CEO Council Summit on Tuesday, IMF Chief Economist Gita Gopinath said there will be two quarters of weak growth before the upside scenario for the global economy becomes evident.

Lawlor said that could generate a fear-of-missing-out rotation trade next year. A pick-up in bond yields should encourage a rotation from quality growth stocks to the COVID-impacted value stocks and financials.

Overall, the world economy is recovering, she said. The risks between downside and upside scenarios will be balanced for the next few quarters, because of the positive news on the vaccine front.

A K-shaped recovery is, I think, the big challenge of 2021, Gopinath said.

Stock markets certainly have reacted to the good news on the rollout of a COVID-19 vaccine.

The fourth quarter of this year will come in weaker than some people expected and so will the first quarter of next year, Gopinath said.

Lawlor said an important point of the vaccines is not simply that economic growth expectations rise, but also that the tail risks recede. I think the bottom line is that rising bond yields reflect rising growth expectations. And if that was the case, that would not constitute a significant headwind for equities, he said.

After that, I think we can have some significant upside risks, she added.

But thats not the case for economic expectations.
