Then we switch over to the news that the Indian economy is now officially the fastest growing one in the world and what this means for the rising Great Power. Afterwards, we discuss the US-ASEAN Summit that took place in California, and how the US is busy trying to assemble a new type of alliance against China. As our runner-up, we then look at how Angela Merkel wants a “no-fly zone” over Syria, coincidentally right at the moment when Erdogan and the US’ proxies are being defeated there. To cap off the week, we conclude by discussing the surprise oil proposal put forth by Russia and Saudi Arabia, where the two market giants agreed to freeze their production but only if other major players followed suit.
