Megatrends and Their Implications for International Trade and Investment

This post is the result of a presentation I was asked to give in August 2021.

Because I rather liked some of the thinking behind it, I have turned it into a lecture (see video below) as well as a short booklet that you can either flip through here or download. 

It essentially discusses three megatrends, namely: 1) geopolitical tensions; 2) known unknows in technology; and 3) economic inequality, and offers some thoughts on the broader implications of these megatrends for international trade and investment.
