Podcast: Global Cost of Living Crisis
GeoPoll team members from across the world discuss the ongoing cost of living crisis
Events of the past two years have left the world economy in a fragile state. Already reeling from the economic impacts of the pandemic and climate change, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in 2022 has pushed many countries beyond their ability to cope. Rising food and fuel prices, debt distress, and tightening financial conditions are now combining to create what the UN is calling the largest cost-of-living crisis of the 21st century.
In this episode of GeoPoll Talks, Christine Mueni, Fran Bodine, Loren Curnick, Timur Nusratty, and Valentine Nwangwu speak to Rose Barasa about their experiences, opinions, and highlights from GeoPoll’s recent report on the cost of living crisis from a study conducted in 9 countries from across Latin America and the Caribbean, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia.
