One seventh of the global recession // The IMF again worsened the forecast for global GDP growth

0


Global GDP growth in 2022, amid the continued effects of the pandemic and the continuation of the crisis in Ukraine, will slow to 3.2%, according to the new International Monetary Fund (IMF) World Economic Outlook, which is now 0.4 percentage points lower than the April forecast. The implementation of the negative scenario, which includes a reduction in Russian oil exports and the cessation of gas supplies to Europe, will lead to a slowdown in global GDP growth to 2.6%. The IMF believes that the threat of a recession in the United States has become more real amid a decrease in the purchasing power of households, a reduction in their savings and an acceleration in annual inflation, and in general, the probability of a recession in the G7 countries is almost 15%. .
