The highest inflation rate in 40 years led to the Federal Reserve increasing interest rates by 75 basis points last week, signaling a much higher chance of a recession in the US this year. With global stock markets tanking and consumers beginning to pull back spending, we ask, was the EU decision to sanction Russian energy imports a colossal mistake? Next we look at the Summit of the Americas held in Los Angeles earlier this month and the status of US strategy towards South America, including the implications of the current presidential election in the US’s closest regional ally, Colombia. Finally we wrap up with a discussion about the Ukrainian refugee crisis with my colleague from Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, Dr. Steven Schrage, and what more the US can do to help the situation.
