OECD: Europe hardest hit by global slowdown

The OECD said on Tuesday that Europe will bear the brunt of a global economic slowdown as energy prices rise and business activity wanes as a result of Russia’s war in Ukraine.

The 38-member intergovernmental organization said global economic growth would slow from 3.1% this year to 2.2% next year, before accelerating to 2.7% in 2024.

However, growth in the eurozone is set to slow from 3.3% in 2022 to just 0.5% in 2023, before recovering to 1.4% in 2024, as the continent is disproportionately affected by the global energy crisis.

Goldman Sachs cut its forecast for Brent oil by $10 to $100 a barrel for the fourth quarter of 2022, citing depressed demand in China with growing concerns over Covid and insufficient details of the latest Group of 7 price cap on Russian oil.

“We believe the market is right to be anxious about the outlook,” economists including Jeffrey Currie said in the note, adding the potential for further curbs in China is on par with the latest production cut by OPEC+.
