Davos 2015 – The Global Economic Outlook

by Jörgen Eriksson on February 4, 2015

WEF 2015 DavosThe World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2015 was held in Davos, Switzerland between 21 – 24 January 2015. Key topics of the meeting was the complexity, fragility and uncertainty factors that are potentially ending an era of economic integration and international partnership that began in 1989.

What is clear is that we are confronted by profound political, economic, social and, above all, technological transformations. They are altering long-standing assumptions about our prospects, resulting in an entirely “new global context” for decision-making.

The discussions in the annual meeting are about both the long term and the short term, and below is a video about the global short term economic outlook for 2015. The discussion opens with the question what should be at the top of the agenda for the global economy in the year ahead?
