What a decade! Western world has been fighting against its deepest economic and financial crisis since 1929. The Euro almost fell apart, the EU is in turmoil, Donald Trump was the president of the US for a while. Some industrialized countries have been begging for credit from former "third world" countries. A pandemic has changed the world and its political an economic systems. Now, Russia´s war in Ukraine creates turbulence, inflation and a profound energy crises.
Meanwhile, these Emerging Markets have been growing steadlily. Sovereign Wealth Funds from the Middle East and the Far East have been buying into famous companies such as Barclays, Glencore, Volkswagen or Deutsche Bank. China is on the rise to become an economic superpower - and hopefully also an ecological superpower.
What a crazy, complex, frightening world. What a fascinating new world!
Globalization is the driver behind these changes. Some people love it, some people hate it, but it has an impact on everybody´s life. I put a spotlight on globalization and its effects in my close-up reports for DER SPIEGEL, Europe´s leadings news magazine and news website (www.spiegel.de/international).
