      De-Globalisation and Sino-US Conflict: Causes and Implications for Business

      The US-China conflict and what it means for doing business - One day crash course with Professor Michael Witt Tensions and turbulent shifts in trade policy, economic power and geopolitics are creating new uncertainties for business organisations. The last 30 years provided a stable rules-based framework, globalisation opened up many new markets for trade and investment, and multinational corporations built globally integrated supply chains. Today, we see the United States struggling to maintain supremacy, China rising, resurgent nationalism across the globe, and the democratic model losing its sheen. HE Jawed Ashraf, High Commissioner of India to the Republic of Singapore, noted at a recent INSEAD Forum, “that we are all being untethered from our moorings. It is no longer a case of history moving forward in linear fashion. We are entering an unpredictable world where we will all have to reckon with finding strategies that enable us to prosper in different sets of circumstances, different markets and different environments.” The challenge for corporate leaders is to be aware of impacts beyond our direct control. This means that business leaders, investors and consultants cannot continue ‘business as usual’ and ignore the shift in paradigm in the global order, but have to develop a new ability: the ability to understand, assess and navigate the shifting political and economic eco-system and its evolving opportunities and risks. The purpose of this one day crash course in international political analysis is to help you develop this ability. Taught by Michael Witt, Affiliate Professor of Strategy and International Business, INSEAD.
