Listen now | Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is a terrible, devastating conflict causing an inexcusable loss of life. The rest of the world has bound together to sanction the nation, Putin and his oligarch friends. But how effective will these sanctions be? And how does the current market paradigm allow for war between nations?I invited energy market strategist Chris Cook back on the show to discuss these key questions. He explains what we can learn from the U.S’s sanctioning of Iran, what role Russia’s energy dominance will play in this war, and, crucially, how we can build markets which promote interdependence—and peace.
I've enjoyed both conversations that you've had with Chris.
There's an underlying hope to the possibilities that he discusses.
Though, as you've alluded to, how do we get to a position of acceptance, respect, trust and collaboration in a world where these things are mendaciously pedalled as signs of weakness and vulnerability?
The eternal question is how do humans transition away from being manipulated by fear and greed? Is it even possible at this time, in this world that we've created?
Excellent! Interesting and enlightening Thankyou.
