In this book, the winners of the Best Young Economist Award give their perception, understanding, analyses and proposals of what the future of the world could or should be.
They answer the fundamental questions that economists and key leaders are asking themselves today.
Are the inequalities that have grown since the end of the last century still tolerable?
Does the welfare state still have a future?
Is globalisation really the cause of all evils?
Is Europe still a relevant economic area?
Is economic science finally opening up to other disciplines?
The authors express their backgrounds, their visions of society and the actions they propose to take in response to the disruptions the world is facing.
