DARE TO BE A EUROPEAN
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

By interaction, ideas and his view on the world, man has come to where he is now, but we are in a different era than any other.

If we don't want to get stuck, then we are obliged to follow a common ideal as to how to live together, not by nationalistic / populistic aspirations, but by making compromises and by building a common factual basis, a shared analyses framework.

 

ROADMAP
FOR
THE EU

 

 

Europe has a territory, what now?

The care for Europe's soul and soil, grandeur and culture 
Continue to build on European authority: the European Union is a group of cooperating states that retain their independence. The construction is a supranational body to handle interests as well as to extent prosperity by pooling some of national 'sovereignty' in areas where it makes sense to work together:
Continue to focus on enlargement

Full role on the "Grand Chessboard": The EU Global Strategy sets out the EU's core interests and principles for engaging in the wider world and gives the Union a collective sense of direction.

The Strategy, which adopted multilateralism, helps to make our Union more effective in relationships and in confronting cross-border hazards.

 

CAPITALISM, BUSINESS & SOCIETY

There exist perverse incentives inherent in a largely unconstrained capitalist system. These incentives drive behaviors that increase inequality, reduce social mobility, devalue communities, deplete soils, acidify oceans, destroy biodiversity, trigger mass migrations and social instability, and fuel violence and war.

From the perspectives of a growing number of business leaders, investors and policy makers, these incentives are now creating unacceptable systemic risk. This is why the systemic design flaws in unconstrained capitalism are creating unlikely bedfellows. We need a change towards moral capitalism and new trends in corporate social responsibility, to do business in a different way and a new socio-economic model using innovative digital techniques. The blockchain and associated technological changes will massively disrupt current economic conditions. The industrial revolution ushered in a world where business models were predicated on hierarchy and financial capitalism. The blockchain revolution will see an economy dominated by human capitalism and greater individual autonomy. How that unfolds is unclear at present. Entrepreneurs and innovators will resolve uncertainty, as always, through a process of trial and error. No doubt great fortunes will be made and lost before we know exactly how this disruption will unfold.
