The facts are clear, the numbers are there. The worst of the economic times is coming. Just take a look at the long list of businesses going out of business that we have been publishing each week.

In recent times, the economic landscape has presented an array of challenges that have profoundly affected the business community. Some of the most significant challenges include soaring inflation rates, escalating interest rates, looming fears of a recession, and a tangible decrease in revenues for many sectors…all made worse by the COVID War which destroyed the lives and livelihoods of billions across the globe. 

The combination of these factors has created an environment where business sustainability has become increasingly challenging. 

Unfortunately, numerous businesses, from startups to established entities, have been unable to navigate these tumultuous waters. 

And now with the Ukraine War and the Israel War, WWIII continues to escalate. Thus, the more war, the weaker economies and the higher inflation rises as governments play the “sanctions” game that cuts off supplies of commodities and raises their prices… pushing up inflation. 

The following list details businesses that, due to the aforementioned reasons, have made the tough decision to close their doors. As we review this list, it is a somber reminder of the vulnerabilities inherent in the business world and the imperative need for adaptive strategies in an ever-evolving economic landscape.
