Monthly Highlights, April 2022
The Russian invasion of Ukraine is causing the greatest humanitarian crisis in Europe since World War II. Thousands of lives have been lost, and millions of livelihoods have been disrupted. This month, our featured stories offer an initial framing of the challenges caused by the war, a perspective on the short- and midterm disruptions, and scenarios for the potential impact on livelihoods in the eurozone. Other highlights in this month’s issue include the following topics:
  • how humanity could add as many as 45 billion extra years of higher-quality life over the next decade
  • employees who left a job without another in hand, who returned and why, and how companies can begin to bring more workers back into the fold
  • ten things the world has learned through the course of the pandemic
