Geo-economics

For an economist this was an extremely interesting Forum, with the massive drop in oil prices helping some countries, hurting others; at the same time central banks using these very aggressive policies and starting to lose some of their credibility. There were also lots of interesting discussions about things that you don’t plan to think about. I met someone who works on helping clean up power plants in China.
