What is small world?

In these small world notes, I write on global economic, geopolitical, and policy issues from a small economy perspective. From the future of globalisation to geopolitical competition and the post-Covid economy, there are disruptive changes underway that governments, firms, and investors need to understand and respond to.

Why subscribe?

I write small world primarily for decision-makers/advisors/strategists in governments, firms, and financial institutions around the world that are looking for insights on the emerging global economic and political environment. And also for anyone that is simply interested in understanding these issues.

Each small world note focuses on selected global developments that I assess to be important, and provides a high-level take on the implications.

Readers of small world get a real time (or first draft) sense of how I am thinking about current global developments: what matters, what doesn’t matter, what does this tell us about the future, what should be on the strategic agenda?

I write on global issues from a small economy perspective, which brings a different lens than many large country voices. Because of their deep exposures to global developments, small economies are very thoughtful about what is happening and how to position in response. So read these notes if you want a slightly different take on global developments
