The current times of uncertainty, of economic disruptions, of environmental emergency but also of geopolitics crisis haveled to a fragmented and changing world in which the dynamics we have known for several years has now drastically changed becoming “more fragmented, more tensed, more on the edge and more under stress”.
World leaders may not agree on much these days – but many of them share the sentiment that the world is entering a critical decade in the contest for the future international order. Over the last three decades, businesses and governments around the world have operated under the assumption that economic and financial globalization will continue apace. As the international order has come under strain in recent years, however, the concept of deglobalization – the delinking of trade and investment so– has increasingly gained traction with households, companies, and governments. National security and geopolitics are supplanting economics in shaping national and international interactions. Central bankers around the world are called upon to deal with the repercussions of strategic economic relations on macroeconomic variables, inflation dynamics, monetary policy, financial stability and market infrastructures.
On the occasion of the annual meetings of the IMF and the World Bank in October 2023, we plan to host a rich variety of programming with the goal of creating a unique new Economic Festival. Roudtables, seminars, book talks and other types of session will be organized throughtout the week of the annual meetings.
