Highlights from the 2022 ISA Global Economic and Risk Outlook

Economic Highlights

  • The global economic recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic remains highly uneven, with some economies struggling to return to pre-pandemic levels of output.
  • More competitive economies with a strong presence in high-tech and high-growth industries have returned to growth much faster than other economies.
  • Governments will struggle to cope with the huge deficits that resulted from the economic stimulus measures enacted during the pandemic.
  • The center of global economic power will continue to shift towards the Asia-Pacific region, even as economic growth in China fails to return to earlier levels.
  • Declining working-age populations, an uncertain outlook for trade and investment, and falling productivity growth rates will make it more difficult to generate long-term economic growth.

Geopolitical Highlights

  • The growing rivalry between the United States and China will come to dominant many aspects of the global geopolitical climate.
  • China's growing assertiveness in Asia and further abroad will result in more countries working together to counter China's rising power.
  • There will be a series of interesting elections taking place in 2022, including those in the United States, Brazil, Australia, France and South Korea.
  • Political polarization and the fragmentation of politics will make it increasing difficult for stable governments to be formed and to remain in power in many parts of the world.
  • Conflict risk will remain dangerously high in many parts of Africa, the Middle East, Central Asia and East Europe in 2022.
