A Make or Break Year for the EU

Print Share
The world in general and the European Union in particular have reached a historical inflection point. The proliferation of "black swans" -- those phenomena we previously never thought possible but that now seem all too real -- is raising uncertainty to new heights. This makes implementing a business strategy extremely challenging. Although last year's double whammy of Brexit and the election of Donald Trump certainly did not help matters, those two events alone are not solely to blame for the uncertainty currently being felt across the Continent.
