2022, building sector and real estate: No more wasteful spending

The economic scissors are closing in on the global construction sector. The good old economic model based, to a very large extent, on new construction will soon no longer be sustainable, while another model, based on a more pragmatic approach (maintenance and renovation of existing buildings), is not yet in place to take over. As […]

Editorial: How the Ukrainian crisis is precipitating the arrival of a new global Middle Ages

It is not a bipolar world that will result from the current war between the West and Russia, but the collapse of 500 years of Eurocentric global civilisation, at the core of which we see Europe, Russia and Ukraine mainly. This will have the US, China and the rest of the world involved not necessarily […]

Editorial – Anticipating in wartime

In the middle of a storm, it is difficult to keep one’s eyes on the horizon. Instead, you see the sky pitching, you hear the sails slamming, you get the spray in your face, everyone screams their fears and angers, and this translates in losing one’s grounding. This is how we should understand the uproar […]

Russia-Ukraine: What new world order are we heading for?

Among the few certainties to be formulated about the Russian-Ukrainian war, there is this one: it is the end of the Cold War! … in that it has now become “hot”, which mainly changes everything.

Real estate: watch your step

The various quantitative easings, or other political stimuli and support for real estate, have prevented real estate prices to collapse as they should have done in the turmoil of the global systemic crisis. We say: “as they should have done”, because it was the only way of finally balancing delusional bubbles… Investments, trends and recommendations […]

2015 – Media, finance, oil system, military-industrial complex, QE : the narratives war

In the chaos that characterizes any crisis, explanations increase as so many attempts to impose their vision of the world where the stake is world domination. The chaotic “gap[1] » opened by a crisis is also a narrative war zone whose winners will be either the strongest (for a short period of time), or the most […]

NATO, QE, Siriza, the Ukraine, Israel: Highways towards « tomorrow’s world » on the horizon

The terrible 2014 Ukrainian crisis should be understood as an absolute limit beyond which the “world before” disappears no matter what. It will either disappear in the chaos and radicalization of the system which, in doing so, will cease to be itself, or it will disappear by opening up to the new characteristics of the […]

EU BORDERS – The end of the myth of eternal enlargement: Turkey-Ukraine, two countries which will not join the EU / The Balkans, last enlargement of the next 20 years / Russia, the key to solve the EU-Turkey problem

The increasing difficulties of the process of Turkey entering the European Union contrasts with the progressive  entry “piece by piece” of the former Yugoslavia (Slovenia is already a member and Croatia  is starting  its integration  process  while proposals  to integrate  the other Balkan countries multiply). This contrast is all the more striking if one compares […]
