if we were to see economic sanctions, i think people would expect to see a written -- the recession. cards's talk about credit and russia's dependence on the likes of mastercard and visa. why does this issue keep coming up? >> it really raised eyebrows. i don't think russians were prepared for the concept that they could wake up and find that tens of thousands of people would've people to use their credit cards because of sanctions. that is what happened when the u.s. sanctioned the 17th largest bank. a friend of putin has a stake in the bank. the credit cards of the people that were at s&p were suspended and all they could do was pull their money out of the atm machine. they cannot conduct any financial transactions or at least could not. now they can.

2:20 am
much downside. >> even if sanctions escalate? >> i think that if the tail risk in terms of escalating sanctions towards russia. that clearly would impact the ruble, particularly when you have stories about flows out of russia. that will impact the currency but that is more than a tail risk and a base case scenario for the ruble. you're not taking russia out of the g 10 anytime soon. thank you. >> googles italian job -- what a tech company is teaming up with the maker of ray-ban and oakley glasses. we are heading to san francisco next. ♪
