    Michael Spence, "The Restructuring of the World"

    Project Syndicate - 27 Sep 2018

    The Nobel laureate in economics offers a useful framework to think about the changes engulfing the world. He says that trade protectionism, together with fears over the geopolitical implications of technological development, are contributing to a balkanization of the world. In short: the world is heading towards greater fragmentation. The crucial dynamic that will shape every part of the global economy in the coming decades is the strategic rivalry between China and the US (reads in 5-6 min).

He explains in quite some detail why he is particularly worried about the US (reads in 8-9 min).
