The World Economy, between Emergencies and the Long Term
The world economy has a past, a present, and a future. But it is also made up of a myriad of different approaches to time. Countries, cultures, sectors of activity conform to their own different notion of time; the pace of finance is different from the pace of education, politics and industry both have a different approach to time. For some, emergencies are building up; others must make it back to the long term. Others are stuck between the very short term necessities and the long term projections.
