Overview

The Great Rupture: What does it mean for the economic fundamentals?

As the world economy crawls out of the health crisis, a rapidly unfolding geopolitical crisis puts the recovery on a tailspin. Are these crises reinforcing and entrenching the rupturing of the two largest economies?  How will the great decoupling – against the backdrop of health, geo-political, inequality and climate crisis – shape the economic fundamentals, particularly productivity growth? What do the macro-models predict? How will the transition and adjustments affect asset prices worldwide? Will there be a new equilibrium? Or are we heading for multiple equilibria, with a diminished role for the dominant reserve currency?
