How COVID-19 may help IMF to reshape global economy (Full show)

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) is offering loans to the world’s poorest 81 countries to help them rebuild their devastated economies, still reeling from the COVID-19 pandemic. But accepting such loans paves the way for increased austerity, privatization, and greater income inequality. RT America’s Alex Mihailovich explains. Then former UK MP George Galloway joins RT America’s Faran Fronczak (in for Rick Sanchez) to weigh in. RT’s Peter Oliver examines the skyrocketing number of COVID-19 cases across Europe and the reimposition of harsh restrictions to stymie its spread. Legal and media analyst Lionel and civil rights attorney Robert Patillo debate proposals aimed at mitigating the perceived influence of the Federalist Society in US courts. RT America’s Trinity Chavez reports on the recent flyby of Venus where the BepiColombo probe captured amazing new images of the planet. Plus, RT America’s Steve Christakos joins for “Jock Talk.”
