Economic Fallout from Ukraine Invasion


Russia's invasion of Ukraine and the sanctions it has precipitated have certainly impacted the global economy, but perhaps not as much as you might expect!  The S&P 500 is up relative to the day the invasion started, though down relative to earlier in February.  Markets with more exposure to trade with Russia have been impacted more--Germany's stock market is down 2.3% since the invasion, and again more since earlier in February.  The conflict will likely to contribute to supply issues, as Russia is an important source of many raw materials as well as fuel.  Let me know in the comments if you're noticing any affects on pro AV!

Thought I'd update: the sanction screws have tightened throughout the week, deepening the economic impact.  That means higher impact to Europe and to oil prices.  The U.S. Federal Reserve Board made its first formal comments on the war this week, with Chair Powell citing massive uncertainty.
