Georgia’s dream of Europe and the specter of inflation that refuses to die

Georgia’s dream of Europe and the specter of inflation that refuses to die

Clashes between police and protesters in the Georgian capital Tbilisi have involved firebombs, tear gas and water cannons. On the surface, the protests have been about a bill aimed at organizations and media that receive money from abroad, it has been called “the Russian law”. But beneath the surface, the strong images are about much more – a dream of Europe, but where Brussels has so far not considered Georgia ready to become part of the Union.

So inflation continues to hit Europe

All countries are part of the same global market and all of Europe has had to get used to sharply rising prices in the past year. But inflation and sky-high food prices hit differently – in Hungary, for example, inflation was just over 26 percent in January, in Spain just under 6 percent. Hear about the differences and about the difficulties in accessing the ghost. To this is now also added the concern in the market after the niche bank SVB crashed in the USA. Hear about how Europe can be affected.
