The clash of the big regions

Strengths and weaknesses of the US, EU and China: A confrontation of ideas, a clash of models, a source of mutual inspiration.

  • Can a reborn US surprise the world and regain dominance over the global economy?
  • Can China overcome its growth crisis and return to the expansion pace of the first decade of this century?
  • Is Europe the weaker link, or will its hidden forces of cultural diversity, social stability and export power bring the old continent back on track?
