About this talk

The conflict in Ukraine creates significant political and economic uncertainties. The imposed sanctions will clearly hurt Russia but also the rest of the world via higher energy prices, higher non-energy commodity prices, as well as reduced trade with Russia and Ukraine. The longer the conflict continues, the longer commodity prices will remain high, further exacerbating the pre-existing problem of high inflation. This leaves investors with numerous questions. What will higher commodity prices mean at a time when global inflation is already high? Could this, and higher rates, lead to a global recession?
