When Russia began its invasion of Ukraine it was soon clear that there would be widespread condemnation by other countries, but little military assistance. What has eventuated is the biggest declaration of economic warfare since World War II.
We have all been shocked by the Russian invasion of Ukraine. To help us understand the situation, we are hosting a webinar on the economic implications of the invasion. It’s complicated, but we will be helping you understand what the invasion will do to world food production, what the sanctions will do to financial markets, why we will all suffer inflation, and what it means for the world’s geo-economics.
Join Dr Alan Bollard and panel members, to discuss the developing situation from a business and government perspective.
Moderator: Dr Alan Bollard is a Professor of Practice at Te Herenga Waka – Victoria University of Wellington and inaugural holder of the Chair for Pacific Region Business. His recent paper The weaponization of money – Could This Be The First Economic World War? explores the impact of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
