Financial Markets in Turmoil, Endemic Violence, Stabilisation Needed: What Will the Next Catastrophe Be?

Even though the world is still counting its Covid deaths and assessing the consequences of this crisis onto its financial markets, economy and society, perhaps it is already time to wonder whether a second rogue wave is not already forming on the horizon, ready to sweep away the old Western socio-economic model next year.

Contrary to usual practice, we will not state our anticipation right from the beginning. Instead, as in any good thriller, we prefer to carry our readers along in our investigation and invite them to summon all the watchfulness and critical mind that any serious anticipation requires.
