Listen: “Geopolitics and their impact on the markets are greater right now than at any point in my professional life,” said Ian Bremmer, president of Eurasia Group and GZERO Media.

In this episode of “Living Beyond Borders,” a special GZERO podcast series brought to you by Citi Private Bank, we’re looking at the current state of the global economy. Gas prices are skyrocketing, supply chain issues abound, and we’re facing a bear market that has sent stock prices tumbling.

Listen: As record inflation meets rising interest rates, we’re examining the role of the US FederalReserve in protecting the economy from recession in the coming months.
