Iranian song fuels anti-regime protests

The US and Germany are leading calls to overhaul the World Bank to better address climate change, ships carrying Ukrainian grain are stuck in a Black Sea backlog, and protesters in Iran are moved by a viral song that was inspired by their social media posts. Plus, the FT’s Rana Foroohar tells us about American farmers’ efforts to survive in a post-globalisation world.
