A changing paradigm: Glimpses of what is coming after the global “nationalist” wave (or From Trump to what?)

 We hereby inaugurate a series of articles by the title « Changing paradigm » aimed at anticipating the different economic and political models that are emerging on the horizon of the new multipolar world, their expansion processes and modes of interaction.

Introduction: the scene is set

The election of President Trump was clearly an important expression of discontent with mainstream politics in the US. But it is neither an isolated event in the world, nor a temporary aberration, as we can see a rise of anti-system parties, nationalists and authoritarians in different developed and emerging democratic nations. The rise of these individuals and movements represents the culmination of a broad shift that was already taking place before, but the change will now be accelerated by their presence in power. Hence, this is not a “transitional” problem, a brief hiccup on the way to a higher stage of globalisation.  We will not be returning to the 1990s dream of a New World Order where history has famously ended[1]. Instead President Trump and his fellow-travellers are rather midwives of a transformation that is taking place.
