New Five-Part Series for The Compass
In Economic Tectonics (Thursday, 3.06pm and 8.06pm) – a new five-part series for The Compass on the BBC World Service – five expert presenters examine the largely hidden forces which are slowly shaping the global economy of the future: politics, demographics, financial innovation, access to resources and technical innovation.
Ten years ago a Harvard economist suggested that it might not be possible to combine democracy, national sovereignty and economic integration forever. Something would have to give. 2016 might just have proved him right. In this edition of Economic Tectonics, Martin Sandbu from The Financial Times explores how –in his view – today’s fractious politics might change the global economy of the future.
