Chart of the month

Economics-Chart-1022-EN

The war in Ukraine, persistently high inflation rates and signs of imminent recession are all contributing to elevated uncertainty. However, there is a marked difference in perception of the economic crisis within Europe. The indices shown in the chart measure how often terms such as crisis or risk are used in economic reporting.
