World Bank Confirms Deepest Recession Since World War II

by | Jun 9, 2020 | Economy, Pandemic, World News | 0 comments

The COVID-19 pandemic will shrink the global economy by 5.2 per cent this year, representing the deepest recession since World War Two, and triggering a dramatic rise in extreme poverty.

The World Bank has just confirmed what many of have all been fearing to happen since this Pandemic got underway, the World Economy is in for the biggest recession since World War 2.

Its expected that emerging markets and developing economies are due to shrink by 2.5%, meanwhile per capita incomes are forecast to fall by 3.6% pushing millions of people into poverty.

The hardest hit will likely be those countries where the pandemic has been most severe and where there is a heavy reliance on global trade, tourism, commodity exports and external financing, the report said.

World Bank Prospects Group Director, Ayhan Kose said in a statement:

“The COVID-19 recession is singular in many respects and is likely to be the deepest one in advanced economies since the Second World War, and the first output contraction in emerging and developing economies, in at least the past six decades”

I’d tend to argue that this economic recession will actually be worse than what was endured following World War II, but I guess only time will tell. It’s going to get rough out there, that you can be sure of!
