Living costs go highest in East Africa in decades

Because of Russia’s war in Ukraine and the coronavirus, the World Bank has cut its yearly prediction for global economic growth, warning that certain nations are facing a serious recession.

Eastern Africa and portions of Europe, according to the bank, were particularly hard hit.

Stagflation – a mix of high inflation and poor growth – might return for the first time since the 1970s, according to the report, owing to rising food and gasoline prices.

David Malpass, the bank’s CEO, told the reporters that seeing the other side of the issue was challenging.

He said that several emerging nations were drowning in debt and that their governments were unable to acquire products.

The new global growth prediction from the bank – 2.9 percent – signals the biggest slowdown in 80 years.
