Global economic recovery slows as risks bite in 2022

By Dennis Shen

The global economic recovery is slowing as elevated commodity prices, weakened economic sentiment and rapid tightening of global rates take their toll. There will be uneven growth across many economies after the crystallisation of multiple downside risks, such as rising inflation, central bank tightening, Russian aggression in Ukraine, emerging market vulnerabilities and a correction of bubbly financial asset markets. Faster policy tightening will prevent inflation from becoming more deeply engrained but it raises the risk of policy mistakes that exacerbate financial instability.
