Discovery: New Year’s Resolutions for 2024

Aside from the loss of material possessions such as houses, buildings, or businesses, people in 2023 and early 2024 also suffered the loss of beloved relatives, family, friends, and colleagues. Everyone seems to have lost a lot in 2023 and had less to eat, travel, and enjoy than in previous years due to rising inflation and high prices.

What made it the most unpredictable year?

During the year 2023, the world experienced catastrophic flooding across 10 countries in 12 days; there were 7 deadly earthquakes in Asia and West Asian countries; the war that Russia started unfairly against Ukraine has shaken up the global economy; an Israel-Palestinian military and political conflict emerged in 2023; there was rising inflation that increased prices since January 2022 and was 4.6% higher in October 2023 than a year before.

When will prices in the UK and around the world fall again?

The Bank of England expects inflation to continue to slow and return to normal levels by the end of 2025. Unfortunately, the cost of food in the United Kingdom, Europe, the United States, and other parts of the world will continue to rise through 2024. Meanwhile, the Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) predicted that house prices could fall 9% by 2024 before rising again in 2025.
