OPEC+ vs. the US

Oil prices soared Monday — and continued rising Tuesday — after a group of OPEC+ members (unexpectedly) announced that they'd slash production voluntarily by more than 1 million barrels per day. It’s the crude cartel’s response to expected sluggish demand for crude triggered by the recent financial turmoil in the US and Europe as well as China’s weak economic recovery.

After the largest bank failure in the US since the 2008 Financial Crisis, fears of a wider financial system failure prompted the Federal Reserve and the FDIC to take dramatic measures to contain more potential bank runs last weekend.

Is a second great depression coming? Adam Tooze on international economic crisis
Is a 2nd Great Depression Coming? | Adam Tooze: Intl Economic Crisis | GZERO World with Ian Bremmer

Is a second great depression coming? Adam Tooze on international economic crisis

Many of us experienced the major economic impact of the Great Recession from 2008-2010. The definition of a "depression" is harder to articulate, even for economists, because the US hasn't had one since the 1930s. But as unemployment rises and lockdowns to limit the spread of the coronavirus threaten the existence of businesses here in the US and around the world, we ask the question: Is another depression a possibility, and what would that look like today?

On this episode of GZERO World, Ian Bremmer poses this question to Columbia professor, economic historian, and author Adam Tooze. The two discuss the strength of the US and global economies before and during the COVID-19 pandemic, and realistic timeframes for when the financial outlook will improve.
