The World Economic Forum’s Global Risks Report 2022 warns that the economic recovery from the coronavirus, much of which has relied on the roll-out of vaccinations, has deepened divisions among nations and in the international community at large. Al Jazeera reports that the outbreak of a new coronavirus variant at the end of 2021 has confirmed what many economists fear: The global economic recovery is on shaky ground and any disruptions could come with long-lasting consequences. Moreover, inflation, supply-chain disruptions, soaring debt, and protectionism are steering the world economy into choppy waters, compounded by the risks posed by climate change, the growing threat of cyberattacks, mass migration, and a race for space exploration.
