Survey: 77% of Romanians anticipate economic crisis this year

A significant part of Romanians, 77% of those consulted during a survey conducted by Avangarde for G4Media.ro, fear a possible economic crisis this year. They expect inflation to be the biggest problem.

According to the poll, Romanians do not believe that the current political leaders are well prepared to handle the crisis: only 14% believe that the Liberal Party leader, prime minister Nicolae Ciucă, is prepared, 13% think social democrat leader Marcel Ciolacu (PSD) is prepared to handle the crisis and no more than 3% of them trust reformist leader Cătălin Drulă (USR) or radical leader George Simion (AUR) to be better options.

Significantly, 38% of those polled believe that no one is prepared to deal with a crisis. At the same time, those surveyed do not blame the Government for the crisis.

A total of 28% of respondents identify war as the main cause of a possible economic crisis, 23% point to the higher energy prices, 21% blame it on the effects of the pandemic and only 11% associate a possible crisis with the quality of Government. 

The change in consumer habits is mixed. Despite the increase in fuel prices, 27% say they drive their car as much as before, and only 20% say that they drive less.

But 43% of those interviewed say they have postponed the purchase of valuable goods, such as cars or real estate, and put more money aside because of fears that a crisis could follow. However, 39% say they have not postponed the purchase of valuables.
