Inflation Bogey Blocking Recovery
By Anis Chowdhury and Jomo Kwame SundaramSYDNEY and KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 19 2021 (IPS) The bogey of inflation has been revived. Dubious pre-pandemic economic progress, fiscal constraints and vaccine apartheid were bad enough. Now, ostensibly anti-inflationary measures also threaten recovery and sustainable development. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has revised downwards its latest global growth forecast. Its latest World Economic Outlook (WEO) warns of a “dangerous divergence” between richer and poorer countries. This has been exacerbated by, but has also worsened national fiscal disparities and the &lsqu...

It was stressful, but Freeman-Brown had a job to do, she says. “We’re no match for nature, but this is what we’ve trained for.

Bartley, a psychologist and the director of mental health services for the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee, says her team received about 10 requests daily during the Games to support athletes’ mental health needs. Most of the calls did not come directly from athletes, but from “a tip from someone around the athlete, who alerted us to a situation,” she says. These requests involved everything from struggles while in quarantine due to COVID-19 protocols, t...

At its peak, COVID-19 drastically reduced the average human lifespan — by as much as 9 years in one U.S. state — according to a new longevity metric developed at UCLA.Sociology professor Patrick Heuveline devised the metric, called the mean unfulfilled lifespan, to assess the impact of temporary “shocks” like the novel coronavirus on average length of life. To date, the pandemic has claimed the lives of more than 4.2 million people worldwide.    The tool allows demographers to conduct fine-grained analyses in specific regions over various periods of time, offering a new and more dynam...

In 2020 alone, there were at least 3 million deaths from COVID-19, though the true figure is probably 2-3 times higher.
