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.

Growth has slowed due to the Russia-Ukraine war, with GDP forecast to expand by 3% in 2022 and 1.4% in 2023. The resilience of the Danish economy is underpinned by its low reliance on fossil fuel imports and strong household, corporate and government balance sheets. However, consumer and business confidence have fallen considerably and inflation has increased to over 6%. Further energy market disruption could reduce growth and push prices higher again, while the tight labour market could trigger more sustained inflation if it leads to rapid wage growth.
