From Al Jazeera – Counting the Cost. Main discussion points:
- Ukraine and Russia are expected to experience a severe recession this year. But the sanctions imposed on Russia and the increasing energy price can inflict inflation on other countries.
- IMF to cut its growth forecast on the Global Economy.
- Russia to turn to the Chinese Yuan to survive and are counties dumping the US$ as the global reserve currency?
