Geo-economics

(CC) Nicolas Raymond / FlickrThe World Economic Forum has just published the report “Geo-economics: Seven Challenges to Globalization.”

The study maps out the challenges that current geo-economic trends pose for globalization:

-Economic warfare

-The geopoliticization of trade talks

-State capitalism 2.0

-Competition for gated markets, not natural resources

-The survival of the biggest and hollowing out of the periphery

-China’s infrastructure-driven alliances by

-The decline in oil prices

Findings show that the rise in strategic competition is reshaping the global economy and unravelling global power relationships and governance. The report analyses these issues and explores the implications for companies, governments and campaign groups.

The report was written by a group of 20 leading thinkers and practitioners around the world.
