The EBRD’s new podcast confronts the world’s biggest economic fears
Listen to a new EBRD podcast called “Fearonomics”, which aims to help confront – and overcome - fears about the global economy by analysing the latest economic data, debunking myths and defining the risks to watch out for.
Jonathan Charles, EBRD’s Managing Director, Communications, will be discussing the most pressing issues of the moment with Sergei Guriev, EBRD former Chief Economist and professor of economics at Science Po and Beata Javorcik, EBRD’s Chief Economist (current) and also professor of Economics at Oxford University.
They will explore a wide range of economic fears from global famine to energy security and the death of globalisation.
In its first episode Fearonomics will be exploring whether we can avoid the looming food crisis.
According to the United Nation’s Food and Agriculture Organisation, even before the war on Ukraine and the pandemic, 690 million people, or nine per cent of the world’s population, were already facing food insecurity and hunger.
Now with the Food Price Index reaching highest levels of all time, the consequences could be stark: from price hikes to social riots.
Is there any way to avoid the catastrophe?
