1:21 am
won the presidential election by a landslide his rival petro poroshenko conceded defeat for right those are the latest headlines counting the cost is next. oh and has a seeker this is counting the cost on al-jazeera your weekly look at the world of business and economics this week russia's international investment banker is moving it to hungary it's been called putin's trojan horse and find out what all bonds
1:22 am
thinking and why the west is concerned. also this week as the global economy slows populous governments are threatening the independence of central banks. plus india's second largest airline runs out of money you off does jet airways have a future. the money looking for a route out of russia and into the european union appears to have found a crack in the banking system tens of billions of dollars has been through mostly baltic nations swamping the outposts of nordic banks it's been an ongoing headache for european regulators and now a different issue entirely has raised the anxiety levels in european capitals russia plans to move the headquarters of its development bank to hungary we'll get into that in a moment but first let's get to grips with the scale of this money laundering problem and some of the numbers behind it around one trillion dollars has been
1:23 am
moved out of russia over the last twenty five years by individuals and companies not all illicit but that's money that has not returned to the country other sources of the money include moldova and as a by john. the money has been moved via malta cyprus estonia latvia and lithuania in the biggest money laundering case two hundred thirty billion dollars was transferred through the dansko bank's estonian branch between two thousand and seven and twenty fifteen where did that money go into london's property market britain's offshore tax havens villas in the south of france and spain as the investigation has continued its strong in banks across europe now having failed to stem the money laundering europe has another dilemma how does it respond to viktor orban is decision to allow moscow to move its development bank to budapest while
1:24 am
the bank is in its infancy and hungry has a minority stake it has no say in the way the bank is run it would effectively have diplomatic immunity so regulators would not be able to monitor it for joining me via skype from bratislava in slovakia is julius horvath economics professor at the central european university in budapest thanks very much for being with us so why does victor all bond want this bank in his country that it's. this question of is it going to be quite complicated because they really. change. and this happens also. maybe because of you. and. and hungary in the last three four years actually is. emphasizing the vagueness of us that you are all for of albany who was the east improving gross
1:25 am
and should be is the more dynamic part of the world and things like that and this is why i'm a love of love so it's improving elation and he is that which is already on for a couple of years the russian mother mika their jeep on the roster come. in through contact affordability in the actors in hungary and this is one of those continuation of the staple for police it's curious though because this bank would be the seventeenth largest in hungary it doesn't appear to have the money for big projects does it yes i think there you got it so this is a barrier which was founded in. you know kind of you know laid out in the sixty's early their seventy's. so its ties to our other way to modernize and actually the bank was to support competition for lawns or things
1:26 am
like that to each was very difficult to implement in the plumbing system but the been sort of live the night in the eighty's it was not the last it's kind of people lost interest it was a bank is a small small volume of copy and if i even bought it leaving one hundred billion left of these banks doing that kind of playfulness there's first. in the late that in eighty s. but then you know who are doing the business would you be going to village of an eighty's when you could maybe maybe ten years ago or you get to be more seen internationally. in burgess law especially its opening two thousand and fifty that original orpheus it increases their membership to be. nine counties saw. the definitely bride's lawns. in the wall of
1:27 am
twenty those people there also lowered our speech on the global scale or even. is not a substantial when we're going. so basically what is the purpose of this bank is it like china's development bank yes it is to have a good relation. to help russia or maybe to ease some of the same because maybe some people can come to the bank who would put it legally if he. had diplomatic status. which of us would be difficult to do so so was this noble fergus i sing you need a political gesture for them and it has also led to me in. the small and it is in that you may be you know because of the political impact but it's difficult to see. you know from the from the university or from some. but most
1:28 am
likely this this is the fact the opposition is calling this putin a trojan horse if you like because it gives it gives the russians this unprecedented opportunity to enter the you through this route and the argument goes that this this creates a serious national security concern is that a legitimate concern you think. oh you know that's. typically already done. the loss of disclosure so. impair you will only last darkly though they know a lot of these two zero two moves across borders. do. you know where the elegant hoped to go to hungary. where the going to go government is very friendly to the russian economy be interest but on your hands it is a member of nato it is member of european union and it's
1:29 am
a huge german interest for example so i don't think you said this is. the changes you know or bruticus political picture. it's it's a some small size zero two more strengthening. the eastern countries especially those most hideous horvath good to speak with you. still to come on counting the cost sixteen thousand jobs on the line as jet airways grounds flights. the neo liberal economies love to talk up independent central banks free of political interference these banks have been able to raise and lower rates to curb inflation and boost growth but a populist trend has emerged that threatens their freehand president trump who has regularly attacked his pick for u.s. fed chairman jerome powell said the stock market would be five thousand to ten
1:30 am
thousand points higher if the central bank had done its job properly breaks it is of rubbish the bank of england and its canadian governor mark carney prediction on the economic impact of britain's decision to leave the european union president of turkey triggered short selling of the lira after the central bank started propping up the currency and. of elections and more doubts been cast on india's economic data the central bank has lowered interest rates just before elections there all this at a time when the international monetary fund has lowered projections for growth to three point three percent the lowest growth since two thousand and nine well joining us here in doha to talk more about this is aqua khan senior director of asset management and welcome so about the independence of the central banks it seems that the they're there under threat from several leaders in the words of
1:31 am
president trump and in turkey modi in india and so on what do you make of that. so when it's very easy for a politician to want to use the resources of the state to help them get reelected it would only be natural central bankers have spent many decades in trying to extricate themselves in particular many of the advanced economies from that oversight from politicians so they can actually do what's best for the long term of the country rather than short term populist measures however the politics in a number of countries you've mentioned and a few others we just had an election in an easier than other country where you've seen some populist policies the politics of a lot of countries have now meant that you have leaders that are more focused on these more short term measures and that has put a lot of pressure on central bankers to try and maintain that independence president trump has repeatedly tweeted about how much he dislikes frankly the federal reserve which doesn't help them in doing what they're what they're trying to do so i guess the question is to what extent can central bankers withstand that
1:32 am
pressure. and continue to do what they're doing or as in some central bankers have found particularly india they get fired but there has always been discussion hasn't there about the job that central banks do i mean during the financial crisis of more than a decade ago the question was should they be should they have been spending so much . to rescue these banks that were in trouble i mean are they are they clear enough in their guidance what's what's acceptable and what isn't so central bankers generally work with inflation targets so they basically in more danced economies they said inflation targets which is an effectively a target for economic growth after we had the crisis a decade ago growth collapsed and if your target as a central bankers to bring inflation up to a certain level that means you have to get growth up to a certain level which led them to effectively throw the rule book out and try and hold. a ray of things which hadn't been done before to try and get growth back up
1:33 am
so you could call it populist you could also call it them trying to meet their. aim which is to have a certain stable level of growth so you could you could probably criticize them of having not done enough prior to the crisis which actually led the crisis to happen so they probably allowed too much growth to happen in the preceding years which which led to the problem and as far as the in the implications of the global economy we have the i.m.f. warning of slowing growth what are what are the main areas of concern for you sure so the i.m.f. has just announced this this very recently but actually the world economy has been slowing for several months or several quarters depending on depending on where you look at so europe is probably the part of the world which which is seeing some of the deeper slowdown germany is struggling and the manufacturing economy within that the automotive sector which as supply chains globally has has been struggling france is slower italy is slower so europe has issues the u.s.
1:34 am
which has been on on a very good path has recently started to see.
