  • The global economy’s prospects have « worsened significantly » as a result of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the resulting « sanctions aimed at pressuring Russia to end hostilities, » according to the IMF’s World Economic Outlook.

  • The IMF and World Bank Group Spring meetings in Washington this week are addressing the war’s consequences, which are especially acute for emerging markets, coming on the tail of the COVID-19 pandemic. Fallout includes rising food costs and food insecurity, as well as higher energy prices, inflation, interest rates and debt burdens.
