    Mohamed El-Erian, "How Investors Are Dealing With Today’s Uncertainties"

    Bloomberg View - 11 Sep 2017

    Allianz’s chief economist argues that investors have been conditioned to buy the dip, regardless of its causes. Their desire to return to a comfort zone can lead to overly optimistic assessments of risks. This attitude makes them vulnerable to sudden large tipping points, particularly those difficult to price, like geopolitics or national politics (reads in 4-6 min).

    Jim O’Neill, "The Economic View from the Alps"

    Project Syndicate - 12 Sep 2017

This conviction is based on the premise that if a nation cannot defend or control its border, it ceases to exist in any meaningful way. What will replace nation-states? The city-state looks like the best contender (reads in 8-10 min).
