Four years into the COVID-19 pandemic, the global economy faces another serious challenge. The concern over a recession is growing as geopolitical tensions are escalating, inflation is rising in several countries, and the global interest rate is increasing. Nevertheless, until 2022, the impacts of the pandemic have not been lessened. In fact, the unemployment rate is still high and revenues are declining in several sectors.
