WoE The weaponisation of Russian sovereign debt with Maximilian Hess and Harish Natarajan of AKE International

Russia has been building a financial fortress by paying down its debt and building up its currency reserves. The result is president Vladimir Putin has made Russia largely sanction proof, but it is not a model that produces growth.

On the flip side the US is one of the most powerful countries in the world but it also has some of the most debt in the world; when you control the debt you have the power.

bne IntelliNews editor-in-chief Ben Aris talks about these and other issues with Harish Natarajan, Head of Economic Risk at AKE International and Maximilian Hess, Head of Political Risk at AKE International.
