Most of the global economy is more likely than not headed toward a recession in 2023. But don't only blame it on inflation and Russia's war in Ukraine.

The economic slowdown this year "is an acceleration of already structural problems around growth, that really started before the pandemic," renowned global economist, Dambisa Moyo tells Ian Bremmer on GZERO World.

Moyo says global inflation is not going anywhere, as the likelihood of a worldwide recession looms large.

Although most of the world understands that they need to transition to cleaner energy, in the short term they still rely on “a hundred million barrels of oil every day.” Europe is creating what Moyo calls, an “industrial Band-Aid solution,” rather than long term solutions to rely on energy from other countries. They discuss how these combined threats will affect the world economy this year.
