Corporate profiteering is behind the food crisis, not Ukraine proxy conflict (Prof. Jayati Ghosh)


On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to Jayati Ghosh, professor of economics at the University of Massachusetts Amherst and member of the UN High-Level Advisory Board on Effective Multilateralism. She discusses why the food crisis of rising prices is caused by agribusiness and big corporations while using the Russia-NATO proxy conflict in Ukraine as cover for profiteering, worsening global inequality as the gulf between the rich and poor continues to grow, the IMF and World Bank’s continued predatory policies, the close ties that the elites of the Global South have with the US and European elites, why the Global South has continued to lose trust in the US, UK, & European countries, and much more.
