ABSTRACT
The article informs about a scenario test on impact of increase of oil price on the world economy. An increase in the oil price would have a major impact on the world economy, according to the model-based scenario test. Growth in the world economy would be significantly lower, inflation would be higher, while the main industrial economies would also experience a deterioration in their current accounts. The results suggest that the recent increase in the oil price is a major risk factor for the global economy, and policymakers are right to be concerned about the impact of a permanently higher oil price, and should be looking at ways of improving their energy efficiency.
