The European Economy in a New World Order

Jan Berger, Siv Helen Hesjedal, James Hoefnagels
  • Around the world, there are signs of a new world order. What signals do you need to watch out for and what opportunities does this present for European companies?

    European companies are feeling the effects of the Russian war in Ukraine and many are looking with concern to the coming winter. The rise in energy prices is cutting into profits needed for new investments, and global political instability is paralyzing companies in their international operations.

    How can the European economy recover, regain old strengths and develop new ones? Themis Foresight has launched a project to develop long-term scenarios for the European economy with a time horizon of 2045. Among other things, we are examining what needs to be done in the areas of business innovation, policy reform, and foreign policy to ensure that the European economy thrives in the future. This analysis is an interim report of the findings.
