The Defund Davos Act

A group of House Republicans, led by Scott Perry have introduced the Defund Davos Act, seeking to halt federal funding to the World Economic Forum (WEF).
With the U.S. having spent tens of millions on the WEF over the years, GOP lawmakers argue for redirecting funds to domestic priorities.
The legislation underscores concerns about taxpayer money supporting an international forum that may not align with American interests.
The move is sparking debates in Congress over fiscal responsibility and the country's role in global initiatives.

Zimbabwe interested in SWIFT alternatives

The Zimbabwean government would like to become a member of the BRICS economic bloc, the speaker of the ruling party ZANU-PF said on Wednesday.
"We made it clear that we would like to become a member of the BRICS," Christopher Mutsvangwa told Russia's RIA Novosti news agency.
The official added that his country is interested in developing alternatives to the Western-dominated SWIFT payment network.
In his view, BRICS could contribute to that.
