Democracy Now! look at the looming possibility of a global recession amid rising inflation, the pandemic, and the Russian war in Ukraine. World financial institutions and wealthier countries should take stronger actions, such as writing off debts crippling developing nations, says Jayati Ghosh, an economics professor at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. “This is just a complete lack of political will. It’s not because we don’t know what to do.” Her piece in The Guardian is headlined, “There is a global debt crisis coming — and it won’t stop at Sri Lanka.” She also discusses other countries on the brink of an economic collapse, including Pakistan, Nepal, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Panama, and Argentina.
