Anxiety Looms As Global Economy Enters Shutdown

By Bohlale Loysio Bam

With a pandemic, the war in Ukraine, and a global economy in crisis, the world sets its sights on an uncertain future. The global COVID-19 pandemic shifted everything from how we work to the functioning of our economies.
Recently the IMF warned of a looming global recession as economic expansion is likely to slow down by up to 3.2% this year. According to the latest IMF report, the war in Ukraine and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, have fostered uncertainty in the global economy, disrupting key sectors of the economy, mainly the global supply chain. Rising prices and geopolitical fragmentation have impacted global trade and cooperation; inflation has also risen substantially as countries continue to recover from the impacts of the pandemic. China has felt the brunt of the pandemic’s force as disruptions to the global supply chain, increased outbreaks, and lockdowns threaten the country’s growth. Ukraine’s inability to export grain products across the world have affected the global food supply, adding further strain to an already frenzied supply chain, and China, the world’s largest exporter. All these compounding factors cast a dark shadow on global economic growth.
