2016: Is it as bad as it sounds?

The world economy enters a new era of fragility. Weaker growth in emerging markets, commodity price instability, low to negative interest rates, currency fluctuations, financial turbulence, and a reform of the international tax system increase the feeling that the world economy in 2016 may be rather chaotic.

Yet, business must go on.

New markets are emerging, the silver generation. New brands are becoming global plus new business models “uberization” are disrupting established paradigms. The world is not what it used to be.

Despite these global challenges, opportunities abound for discerning and competitive companies. How can we win in this brave new world?
