image of OECD Economic Outlook, Volume 2022 Issue 1

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.

After a rebound of 4.2% in 2021, growth is expected to weaken to 2½ per cent in 2022 and 2¼ per cent in 2023 and be accompanied by a surge in inflation mainly because of the war in Ukraine. Soaring energy and food prices, growing uncertainty and supply difficulties for certain raw materials will weigh on activity and only be partly offset by the expected increase in public investment and the measures taken by the government to protect households from rising prices.
