The Great economic de-coupling: Globalization in need of therapy

Protecting the planet and the people 

Confronted with an increasing risk of geopolitical fragmentation, the global economy is facing its perhaps biggest test since the Second World War. Over the past decades, flows of capital, services, goods and people have radically transformed our world for better and worse and the global economy has tripled in size. Although it meant significant development for some, globalization also increased competition and inequalities within and between countries, leading to risks of “disintegration” with significant economic, social or politic costs. So much so that decoupling and de-risking – to reduce interdependences, towards ensuring one’s economic resilience – have become mainstream terms, as geopolitical rivalries deepen. This session will explore how to avoid the looming fragmentation of the global economy, which would only drive countries and people further apart, and reshape globalization so that it can be fairer and greener.
