stratford al jazeera keith while the war is having a major knock on around the world, particular with food supplies. ukraine is known as the bread basket of europe, and together with russia, producers about a quarter of the world's wheat and the war is putting that at risk. our diplomatic editor james base reports on efforts to get the grain out of ukraine's porsche. one of the major reasons for the global food crisis is the grain which is trapped inside ukraine. 25000000 tons from last year's harvest. with an estimated 55000000 to be harvested in the coming months, the u. n. has been working on a plan, working with turkey and with russia to get the grain out of the port of a desert through the black sea, which is mainly controlled by the russian navy with much of it mind. now, for the 1st time, the russian ambassadors ignited nations and sounded positive about the negotiations . we're not responsible for the, for the,
7:08 am
for establish himself. the safe corridors were said that we could provide safe passage if these quoted was an established and pushed them as them. it's obvious, it's either to the mind that there are 3 which was mind by the ukrainians, or to ensure that the passage goes around those mines that they become. so what is russia get out of all of this? while there is a 2nd part of the plan, according to the united nations, which would bring russian grain and russian fertilizer to the global market. although the spokesperson for the secretary general is giving you details. in order to, to, for this to go forward, there will be a need for agreement from the ukrainian side from the russian side. so, and this is in close cooperation with the turkish authorities, including the turkish military. so obviously if and when we have an agreement that will mean that as in any of these types of negotiations, that the parties involved will have reached
7:09 am
a place where they feel comfortable that this could move forward. there is a separate plan from the white house which was announced in recent hours by president biden, to set up grain silos on the polish border. when we asked the un about that, they said no comment. a suggestion, negotiations evolving turkey, russia, and probably ukraine. and now at a very delicate phase, well, the impact of the war's being felt at gas stations, and grocery stores across the us, inflation day as a 40 year high. the federal reserve is not increasing interest rates to the highest levels since $994.00 to tame the soaring cost of living. my kind of report from washington. the announcement was expected, but no less shocking. at today's meeting, the committee raised the target range for the federal funds rate by 3 quarters of a percentage point resulting in a one and a half percentage point increasing the target range so far this year. the only potential ray of light and unemployment rate near a 50 year low with job vacancies at historical highs and wage growth elevated.
7:10 am
but this is offset by soaring inflation, which the rates hike is intended to curb. prices across the board increased by nearly 9 percent last month alone, as inflation reached a level not seen in decades. the interest type will increase the price of mortgages and insurance among other things. but the fed hopes that are also damping consumer spending, which in turn should reduce inflation. my colleagues and i are acutely aware that high inflation imposes significant hardship, especially on those least able to meet the higher costs of essentials, like food, housing, and transportation. we are highly attentive to the risks, high inflation poses to bite. so both sides of our mandate and were strongly committed to returning inflation to our 2 percent objective. and that would be welcomed by a suffering public y'all. i have got to slow it down. it stretches, gallon and mill of mom, we don't know the $6.00 every 2 days that go to say what the mill for

chelsea lewis and her family inflation is not an abstract statistic. it's an everyday burden that determines whether there's food on the table or whether she can drive the twin high school kids to track meets the surgeon. prices is particularly hard on people, still recovering from the economic ravages of attend demik. this is been a rough time and then with the, you know, the recent with the ukranian situation and then the gas was the shooting up. it's just like this world is, is, is certainly even more rough for the ones who are already struggling to keep their head above water. so it's kind of like now i just speak for myself. you kind of feel like you're drowning in a sense. chelsea is holding down several jobs while studying for a degree, but she couldn't cope without a government safety net. in particular, a housing subsidy known as section 8, food stamps, about $800.00 a month. my daughter who you just met. she's on social security. that's how we're
7:12 am
managing. but the good blessing is before we moved to georgia after 60 years and being on the section a housing voucher program, i made it to the top of up to the fits announcement, the white house, which continues to play much of the gloomy economic outlook on russian president vladimir putin section in ukraine, said it was doing everything to steady growth, and that's little comfort to the louis family, which regularly plays a board game called the game of life in which players get into debt, take out insurance, make investments, spine property, and so on. but they have little or no control over the real game of life being played out beyond these walls. one off ramp and inflation and rising interest rates in which the consumer is always the loser. mckenna al jazeera washington and latin america's largest economy. brazil is also struggling with runaway inflation. the central bank has increased interest rates by half
7:13 am
a percentage point with rising food and fuel prices. more families say they're struggling to make ends meet and it's the same picture around the world. countries are already struggling to recover from the economic shock of the pandemic. supply chain disruptions on taking a toll on major manufacturing economies. the impacts of locked down measures in shanghai and china's production hubs are still being felt. and now sanctions on russia and blockades of ukraine's ports, a limit in grain exports and driving up energy prices worldwide. let's bring him down one. she's the chief economist at, hang sang bank china and joins us live from shanghai done. good to have you back with us. so we're now seeing inflation rates increase around the world, particularly in europe, the u. s. how worried should we be given the warnings we're hearing from the world bank about a global recession and stagflation? on the saturation is now real threats. the rate hide from the federal reserve could be faster in some format, but it will not do i. i slowing down the hiring as big companies and also by
7:14 am
slowing down the property marketing boston, and we might see a trigger or a potential currency crisis in emerging markets, which you are exacerbated, are short stairs in food and energy purchase capacity. so i'm now to back past that pessimistic about recovery in china, but for much of the matching markets, there is a real concern down. so let me ask you, i mean, all consumers really spending more or is the energy crisis, the war and ukraine and supply chain issues in china where you are mostly to blame men while the supply. also that is for sure, the main constraints for the rising inflation, but we know the odds of the inflation is still alternately and monitored phenomena . so the western go generous subsidies to their consumers after college was tardy to blame as well. and right now the high inflation is mostly silly energy and food crisis. and that issue cannot really be directly addressed by raising rates,
7:15 am
but it has to be addressed by increasing capacity. somehow. the global economy is simply not in a good position yet to read the day those laws to capacity. and that's an interesting point you make down. i mean, as you say, many central banks around the world are increasing interest rates to try and curb consumer spending. but is that tool working, getting the underlying factors, driving inflation on the cost of living? wow, i'm sure like in some countries, because for the u. s. in particular, the consumers have a lot of financial liquidity in their hands, thanks to the generous government subsidy. so by increasing rates, it will slow down the consumer borrowing battery will also increase the risk of on employment high in the future. because the big companies, profit will suffer and they were cope by laying off what is that and thinking about . and so in the end,
7:16 am
it is to the individual who are going to bear most of the cost of the rate high, or they've done just a final point to, i mean, just to rub salt into the wound before the issue of big multinational like so for instance, in other energy companies, raking in huge profits are not passing on those benefits to us as consumers. that's also keeping the cost of living up on that is for sure. a very true one bus do when you to keep in mind that we're facing a energy security crime says, now the world is trying to have this energy transition, but still we have a shortage in the traditional fuels. so those companies actually is in a good position to make profits and water economy recovery needs done to produce more, not less than along many, many thanks for your thoughts. thank you very much indeed and thought for a short break here now to 0. when we come back, the u. s. announces a new military, a package for ukraine to support its campaign in the dumbass winter. and will tell
