The world’s largest economies are grappling with the fallout from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. As a result, food and energy costs have skyrocketed.

In addition, the economies of the United States, the European Union and China are expected to experience recession. There may also be a downturn here in the near future. According to the International Monetary Fund, the situation in China is particularly worrying. Especially since it was believed that 35 to 40 percent of global growth came from the growth of the second largest economy in the world.
