WATCH/LISTEN ON PATREON OR ROKFIN

Guest: Clare Daly and Mick Wallace. We talk to the Irish Members of the European Parliament who are now some of the most powerful anti-war voices heard around the world.

We disagree with taking sides in a situation that requires more nuance. In a bonus segment, we talk about the position of neutrality taken by Ireland and how this status is constantly under pressure.

Ep 65 Turkey: Economic War & Global Realignments feat Tom Luongo

Analyst and writer Tom Luongo returns to the show to talk about the economic and geopolitical implications of the current hybrid war between the US and Turkey and the broader war around it. We discuss the collapse of the Turkish Lira, dollar-denominated debt, how currency wars work, and the inertia of markets and traders. We also delve into the geopolitical lead up to this crisis — Turkey’s role in the Syrian war and a failed coup — both of which led to realignments and new allies that might result in an unusual rescue. Will Turkey employ a Russian formula for surviving sanctions and currency crises? Will it lead to an exit from NATO?  Or will the old guard, Cold Warrior foreign policy establishment bring a defiant Erdogan back into the fold one more time?
