Haven’t received your online shopping on time? Fareed talks to David Lynch, global economics correspondent for the Washington Post, about why the post-pandemic economy is seeing supply shortages and high prices for goods. What is causing these glitches in the global supply chain? One piece of the puzzle is the shake-up in the labor market, Heather Long, an economics correspondent for the Washington Post, tells Fareed about the great re-assessment of work in America and how the puzzling data might foreshadow a positive future for productivity and growth in the global economy. Then, Anne Applebaum, staff writer for the Atlantic, explains Poland’s democratic downturn and why events in Poland may sound familiar to Americans. The Pandora Papers offered another glimpse at how and where the rich hide their wealth. Sarah Chayes, author of the book “On Corruption,” explains why South Dakota has become a global tax haven, right in the U.S. heartland. Plus, Fareed takes a look at the future of German politics as Angela Merkel departs from the spotlight after her 16-year tenure as Chancellor.
