The Cost of the War
This event is organized in cooperation with the newspaper “Die Presse”.
Soaring energy prices, double-digit inflation rates, food shortages, and supply chain disruptions – the Russia-Ukraine war is not only a humanitarian catastrophe, it also has severe economic consequences. Is there any end in sight for the price hikes? Is global stagflation looming? What are the consequences of the sanctions imposed against Russia? Who benefits from the war? And what do new political alliances and dependencies mean for the world economy? We’ll be taking a closer look at the dynamics of the war and its impact on the global economy.
