Prepare to be enlightened as we dissect the impacts of steady interest rates in the US and UK, rising energy prices, and wage increments in the US economy. We also shed light on the continuous strikes, which are threatening to disrupt economic growth, and the launch of the first green methanol vessel by Maersk Let's not forget the end of strikes at Chevron's Australian LNG facilities and the potential ripple effects of ongoing strikes at Apple's France locations.

Also on the table is the latest round of industrial action announced by the train driver's union and its potential ramifications.
