There is an evolving osmosis between worktime and vacation. Is current inflation transient or not – the debate goes on. Glasgow didn’t achieve enough, activists and shifting attitudes could do more in the near future. Human innovation continues to flourish. Yet we undervalue imagination at our peril.

US-China relations should not be reduced to good or bad, it’s the nuance between the two that could equate to a more stable world order. Fiction can help us make sense of reality; information overload might not be so helpful.

The roots of the great resignation run deeper than job fatigue. The inflationary nature (or not) of deglobalization comes under scrutiny. That climate change will provoke mass migration is a given, the right response to it is not. New science is emerging about human energy.

The ‘Cornwall Consensus’ heralds the end of a free-market driven agenda and the return of state to the economic arena.

The ever more pressing need to prioritise financial stability will erode central bank independence. The fall-out from a ‘Hydra of bottlenecks’ is being felt throughout the US. Flaky methodology, still mostly driven by profit not planet, means that ESG funds are often more ‘greenwashed’ than genuinely green and good for society.

The pandemic has revealed a collective inability of our leaders to govern today’s globalized and inextricably interconnected world.
