How Russian sanctions could further corrode globalization

The Russian invasion of Ukraine and the sanctions placed on Russia by the West are putting supplies of steel, palladium and grain at risk, as well as setting back global aviation and adding to the chaos of the shipping industry.

Adam Posen of the Peterson Institute says that could lead to less varied, costlier goods and a more divided and politically uncertain world.

Cyber security experts needed to manage increasing threats

There are about 400,000 unfilled positions in cyber security in the U.S. according to the trade group ISC-squared, and that’s likely an undercount.

Without cybersecurity expertise in the C-suite and on the board, companies don't know what they don't know.

Cybersecurity professionals face burnout

Today on #MarketplaceTech, we talk about the burnout cybersecurity professionals are facing.

The White House this week warned about potential Russian cyberattacks. The people responsible for defending against those attacks are already under severe pressure.

There is a lot of burnout, especially in the people who respond to cybersecurity incidents because it’s constant crisis management.

Reframing the Great Resignation as a time of exploration for both employers and workers

Workers have quit their jobs in record numbers over the last year and the phenomenon known as the Great Resignation doesn’t appear to be slowing.

But this period of workforce change also represents new opportunities.

An era of workforce turnover can open new opportunities for both employers and workers, says management consultant Keith Ferrazzi.

While big energy and financial firms are better defended than they used to be, other critical industries are still vulnerable.

War in Ukraine could make catalytic converters more costly

Russia produces 40% of the world’s palladium, found in catalytic converters. And the war in Ukraine could drive up the price of catalytic converters.

They're valuable in part because the palladium inside is expensive. And Russia provides much of the world's palladium.

Hello Kai, I’m a huge fan of you and marketplace. You seemed at a loss to get a “little economic context.” Let me rattle off an assortment of seemingly disparate facts and bring them together with a suggestion for your next episodes. Clinton Presidency Years 1993 - 2001; federal surplus 236 billion dollars. Home mortgage rates 1988 were around 11% we were told you would never see them below 10%! We spend 3.7% of GDP on the military, by percent we rank forth in the world behind Saudia Arabia, Israel and Russia. However in dollars we are number one. Currently we spend $778 billion come Monday we will be spending north of $800 billion. We spend 39% of the worlds military budget, China 13% and everyone else is single digits. We spend 4 times the world’s overall military spending. We spend 54% of discretionary spending on the military in 2015 dollars. The income inequity of the US is grim: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Income_inequality_in_the_United_States With less than 1% of the population holding in excess of 50% of assets. Taxes on the rich are often zero to single digit. I pay about 30% and I am not rich. So we have a few with all the money, paying little to no taxes and a budget where military spending eclipses education, healthcare, green energy and programs designed to ameliorate justice inequity, ie. police reform, and voting access. I propose a new economic theory, bubble-up economics. It works like this, tax everyone a flat rate except those living below the poverty line, they pay zero percent. Prioritize spending programs that benefit at least 50% of the population, things like education and job training, healthcare, green energy, social services and psychologic counseling (rather than military weaponry for the police), environmental justice, a federal living wage and pass the “For the People and John Lewis Voting Reform Acts.” In short get more money into the hands of more people on a permanent basis. Remember those stimulus checks? This would be paid for by spending less on the military and more at home for the majority of Americans and a just tax system where everyone pays their fair share. Discuss.

Few months back i was scrolling through and reading posts in groups just like you're doing now, i had no intention of investing a penny in forex. i just enjoyed reading testimonies of different people making thousands of dollars in forex, it all seem like a play, it was just too good to be true.. Then i thought to myself, what if this is it? what if this is my only way of earning without having to work all day and night-shifts. I took a bold step to invest with Mrs Cynthia Frank who i've read so much good reports about. i invested $500 in her forex service and in 6days i got 6000$ in my bitcoin wallet. from there on i realised i've been a coward all this time who was afraid of taking the leap of faith, thank god did sooner rather than later. Reach Mrs Cynthia Frank today personally;;;WhatsApp: +1 (619) 369-4677 Email: [email protected]

Dr. Aishah Scott, assistant professor of Black studies and of health policy and management, discussed on Marketplace Business News why Black and Latino communities have experienced greater rates of COVID infection and death during the pandemic. “What we see here are gaps in access to care,” said Scott, “lack of access to quality health care, to quality employment, to quality education. These are the social determinants of health, and they’ll continue to reproduce themselves over and over again.”
