Europeans on alert! Major uncertainties across the Atlantic (recovery plan, inflation, defence)

In our January Panorama of trends for 2021,[1] we mentioned that the US was the main question mark on our map of the future. Part of this dark spot was coming from the fact that Joe Biden had not even taken office on January 15 and it was yet difficult to grasp the reality of his good intentions. On that specific point, things have began to lighten up. But the change of administration is not the only factor of uncertainty coming from the US. On economic, political and geopolitical levels, the world will see great surprises that we try to pinpoint in this article. Indeed, Europe must be particularly vigilant to all risks of economic, financial and geopolitical conflagration, and finish freeing itself from its transatlantic ties, while paying close attention to its own personal demons.
