Thought of the Week – The geopolitics of the energy transition: Are fossil fuels more secure?

Thought of the Week – The geopolitics of the energy transition: Are fossil fuels more secure?

Apr 2024

I have written earlier in the year about the challenge the energy transition faces in terms of geopolitical dependency. Many of the metals we need to build windmills, energy storage facilities, EVs, etc. are coming from a handful of countries. And let’s face it, these countries are typically not very stable or particularly friendly to European and North American importers. But have we thought about comparing these geopolitical dependencies to our dependencies in fossil fuels?

Thought of the Week – What the Germans think about their debt brake

Thought of the Week – What the Germans think about their debt brake

Apr 2024

Germany is one of the countries that has introduced a debt brake into its constitution. Basically, it says that the German government must balance its budget in the medium term and can only run excess deficits in times of emergency. Ironically, this has backfired recently when the German constitutional court struck down the 2024 budget and forced the government into austerity right at the height of a recession. Yet, the debt brake remains very popular with Germans as a new analysis shows.

Thought of the Week – The roots of deglobalisation

Thought of the Week – The roots of deglobalisation

Mar 2024

I believe that heightened tensions with China and the supply chain disruptions of recent years will not lead to a period of deglobalisation. Rather, I think most companies will diversify their supply chains to reduce dependencies and become more resilient. However, this view is being challenged by an analysis of the motivation behind recent government actions to benefit local industries.
