60 Multiplier Effects/Economic Consequences of Russia's Invasion of Ukraine
Posted by Ambassador T. Brikins
The Bible is concerned with economic justice. Unfortunately like in news stories we watch on television,media devices, listen to or read, we hardly imagine the impact of news until it gets close to us experientially or geographically. In this post which precedes our earlier announced one (which will still follow this), we have compiled a comprehensive multiplier effect of the current Russian- Ukraine war from researched based policy analysis and commentaries from leading international economists on the global economy.
Will this crisis likely call for the need to reconsider the current interdependence of national economies to an independently sustainable new model?
'' An arrogant man stirs up strife,
But he who trusts in the Lord will prosper''. Proverb 28:25
''The righteous will see and fear,
And will laugh at him, saying,
“Behold, the man who would not make God his refuge,
But trusted in the abundance of his riches,
And was strong in his evil desire.” Psalm 52:6-7
'' I know the Lord will get justice for the poor and will defend the needy in court.'' Psalm 140:12
God acts in history to lift up the poor and oppressed.
