The Ukraine war and impending commodities "super cycle" w/ Amir Handjani
Wheat, corn, and sunflower exports from Eastern Europe have been severely impacted by the war, and guess what, the countries most affected are those already reeling from Western-led/assisted wars and famine (Yemen), economic breakdown and instability (Lebanon), and systemic corruption and repression (Egypt). Bottom line, says energy and markets expert Amir Handjani: the poorest people of the Middle East. While everyone has been talking about skyrocketing energy prices due to the war in Ukraine, a more potentially catastrophic situation is just around the corner. In the first half, Dan & Kelley discuss Sweden and Finland and their sudden yearning to be in NATO — and what kind of havoc that might wreak in regards to an already NATO-phobic Russia.
