Economist Michael Hudson Discusses the Economic Motivations and Ramifications of the Conflict in Ukraine

Katie Halper begins by asking Professor Hudson this question: “We wanted to start off by asking you if you could provide an overview of what the economics driving this conflict are—and by conflict, I mean the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, and, of course, with the rest of the world, or really the conflict between Russia and US, and the economic fallout.”

Read or listen to the ensuing discussion, which I found to be very helpful/insightful.
