Sweden’s Riksbank has kicked off what’s expected to be a series of interest rate hikes around the world, as central banks struggle to curb inflation. The 100 basis point hike is Sweden’s biggest in three decades, in response to a cost-of-living crisis that’s affecting households and businesses. Also in the show, FRANCE 24’s Soukaina Skalli and Julien Sauvaget meet undocumented workers of France’s gig economy, who say they’re not longer able to work for delivery services like Uber Eats.
