“Recession is a word that central banks and political leaders are trying to avoid. According to investors and company leaders, the danger of a recession is real, especially in Europe,” the article says.

The agency recalled that the heads of major financial institutions, including JPMorgan Chase and Goldman Sachs, had already warned of a possible recession in Europe. The main danger is the continued high inflation, the crisis in Ukraine and the associated energy crisis. However, it is noted that the European Central Bank is optimistic and hopes to find solutions to stimulate the economy during the crisis.
