POLITICAL RISK ANALYSIS FOR A TURBULENT WORLD
In an increasingly interdependent world countries have been following different economic and political strategies in their search for increased welfare. These different approaches have important implications for businesses, either when thinking of investing in a foreign country or when attempting to carry out export-import activities. The course will analyze how the world has evolved in the last decades and the meaning actually of Country and Political Risk. When the main exporter and economy in the world is China and the potential liquidity problems comes from OECD countries means that economic environment has changed drastically in the past decades.
