Polarized World

A common destiny for people and planet in a polarized world

Our world is facing unprecedented challenges due to lack of economic opportunities and growing inequalities.
As highlighted by the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Agenda, globalization is causing more and more polarization, both between markets (developed vs. developing economies) and within markets (income inequalities, crisis of the welfare state, access to healthcare, etc):

01

Mature vs developing economies

  • Reducing potential development of growing markets
  • Increasing political instability
  • Forcing growing migration
02

Within markets

  • Blocking social elevator for new generations
  • Stressing political sustainability of societies
  • Increasing social fragmentation
