The Guardian: Last Residents of Tunisian Ghost Town Set Sights on Europe

The dwindling population of a once-vibrant Tunisian town, now dubbed a "ghost town," is looking towards Europe for a better future. As economic challenges and dwindling resources plague the town, many residents have decided to leave in search of better opportunities. The allure of Europe, with its promise of a better life, is drawing the remaining inhabitants, signaling a potential end to the town's legacy. The situation highlights the broader challenges faced by many regions in North Africa as they grapple with socio-economic hardships and the hopes of their people for a brighter tomorrow.


Eiu.com: Middle East Conflict Expected to Sustain High Hydrocarbon Prices

The outbreak of the Israel-Hamas conflict on October 7th abruptly halted the crude oil market sell-off and contributed to the increase in natural gas prices in Europe. We anticipate that both oil and gas prices will remain at their current elevated levels throughout the rest of this year and into 2024.
