Rumours of the demise of globalisation may be exaggerated
Despite evidence of China-US decoupling, claims of globalisation entering its end-game appear ill-judged, according to ...
DHL has published its Global Connectedness Index, which, perhaps in spite of the lack of political agreement, finds that Europe is the most connected region in the world – with the Netherlands the top country. All but Singapore of the top 10 most globalised countries in the world are located in Europe. Surprisingly, the US, while heading the Americas region, comes in 23rd overall. The Middle East and North Africa, presumably because of various political upheavals, were the only two regions to decline this year. (And, if like us you were wondering whether ‘connectedness’ is an actual word and not something dreamed up by DHL’s publicity department, it is. First recorded usage: 1697.)
