The report of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) with forecasts for changes in the economy in 2021 instilled optimism. A few months ago, the fund's experts said that the global economy by the end of 2021 is unlikely to grow by more than 0,5%. And now there are other forecasts.

At the same time, the optimism emitted by the IMF forecasters annoys millions of the world's inhabitants, who, among other things, have lost their jobs and ended up below the poverty line due to the coronavirus crisis. In total, about 2020 million people crossed this line in the opposite direction in 130 (according to the most conservative estimates). This is comparable to the size of the population of, for example, Japan.
