Ukraine claims it needs $750 billion more to ‘Build Back Better’, by Jordan Schachtel

It looks like Ukraine has mounted an impressive fund raising operation. Too bad its military effort hasn’t been anywhere near as successful. From Jordan Schachtel at dossier.substack.com:

Kiev economics school assessment is funded by USAID.

A new US-funded report out of Kiev assesses $108.3 billion in economic damages for Ukraine, but requests a 7x replenishment of $750 billion so that the country can “Build Back Better.”

The Kyiv School of Economics has released a new assessment claiming that Ukraine will need hundreds of billions of dollars to “Build Back Better” from its war against Russia.

As of August 1, 2022, the new update from the Ukrainian institution assesses $108.3 billion in economic damages from the war, roughly the equivalent of the country’s gross domestic product in 2020.

But as you’ll see in a moment, those damages are rookie numbers. In this era of money printing madness, Ukraine has much more ambitious plans than simply replacing damaged infrastructure. These “expert” economists are about to send the tab soaring.
