MARKETPLACE: A growing number of giant global businesses — including Apple, Shell, Ford and BP — are opting to divest from Russia in the wake of its invasion of Ukraine. That list also includes ExxonMobil, which manages and has a major stake in a Russian oil and gas project. Terminating those commitments will take time, cost billions and likely not change Vladimir Putin’s stance on Ukraine. We’ll also look at where OPEC+ oil is flowing, how a ban on Russian airlines will affect global aviation and what it means that the ruble is a free-floating currency. Plus: Federal Reserve chief Jerome Powell confirms the upcoming interest rate hike we’ve been expecting.
MARKETPLACE TECH: Since Russia invaded Ukraine last week, social media users have been sharing images and stories of the war. Mixed in with the feed are coordinated disinformation and propaganda campaigns. Wednesday we’re joined by Courtney Radsch, a fellow at UCLA’s Institute for Technology, Law and Policy, to discuss content moderation policies that platforms are creating “on the fly yet again.”
