Q: What does The economy is on rough ground mean?
A: The phrase "X is on [adjective] ground" is a common expression. In this expression, "ground" is a metaphorical term. You can think of it like this: the ground holds everything up. So the ground for something is the thing that "holds up" X.

You can then modify this "ground" with an adjective. Overall, this conveys how trustworthy the ground for X will be.

In your sentence, the ground for the economy is "rough," which means that the ground for the economy is not very trustworthy. Metaphorically, if the ground for the economy topples over, the economy topples over as well. That's where the meaning comes from.
