Economist Dambisa Moyo on the Global Economy: Pros and Cons

In the latest episode of the GZERO World Podcast, Ian Bremmer sits down with economist, author, and member of the UK parliament’s House of Lords Dambisa Moyo. They discuss the health of the world’s finances, the impact of geopolitical crises in Europe and the Middle East on trade flows and inflation, and how China’s economic woes are impacting everyone else.

Currently, US indicators are strong, but Germany and the UK are slipping into mild recessions. China’s collapsing real estate sector, local government debt, and the exodus of foreign investment are dragging the world’s second-largest economy into stagnation. Additionally, Global South countries hold record amounts of debt.

Looking ahead, what does all of this mean for the global economy? Is it still in the process of shaking off its post-Covid hangover, or are some of these problems more deeply rooted?
