The Source: Economics of the Ukraine and Gaza Wars & the rise of Artificial Intelligence

Prof Wolff joins The Source to talk about global economic challenges, focusing on the impact of Western sanctions against Russia and the U.S.'s declining influence. Despite sanctions, Russia's economy shows growth, credited to Russia's strengthened ties with non-Western economies like China and India.The sanctions are a failed attempt to control Russia and a means for the U.S. to engage in the Ukraine conflict indirectly. Turning to Germany, Wolff attributes its economic downturn to severed ties with key markets like China, exacerbated by sanctions against Russia. Lastly, on AI, Wolff explores how its benefits or detriments depend on the surrounding economic and social systems, not the technology itself.
