Geoeconomics and the zero-sum game
This event is organized by the Department of Economics
Individual countries’ political and economic systems are as different as the countries themselves. Long after the end of the Cold War, their goals and the instruments used to achieve them still vary widely. In addition, zero-sum logic makes it difficult to find solutions to global challenges such as climate change. We will be exploring what these geostrategic rivalries mean for international trade policy. What are the consequences for the WTO and the EU? And what strategies are in place to protect our prosperity?
