The war in Ukraine is a major humanitarian crisis with associated economic shocks that threaten the post-pandemic recovery. The OECD Economic Outlook, Volume 2022 Issue 1, highlights the implications and risks for growth, inflation and living standards from higher commodity prices and potential disruptions to energy and food supplies, and discusses the associated policy challenges.

This issue includes a general assessment of the macro-economic situation and a chapter summarising developments and providing projections for each individual country. Coverage is provided for all OECD Members as well as for selected partner economies.

GDP is projected to grow by 6.1% in 2022 and 2.1% in 2023. Private consumption is the main driver of the recovery, driven by a gradual pick-up of employment. Strong commodity prices have improved the terms of trade and are supporting fiscal outcomes, against the background of rising external demand. Inflation has risen well above target, initially driven by food and energy prices, which have particularly affected low-income households. More recently, however, inflationary pressures have become increasingly widespread.
