Alexandre Kateb, founder and chairman of The Multipolarity Report was the guest of Alex Proimos, CFA Market Narratives Podcast series which he runs for Investment Magazine, dedicated to the Australian institutional investors community. The 35 minutes long discussion tackled critical issues at the juncture of Economics, Finance and Geopolitics focusing on what they meant for investors. From the rise of the BRICS and the future of the US-China relationship to global inequality, the power of social networks and Big Tech, the global energy transition and the redefinition of political risk in a Multipolar World. Some questions were also specifically focused on the political and economic developments in the MENA region, through the example of Vision 2030 and the reform agenda carried over by Prince Mohammed Ben Salman in Saudi Arabia. Alexandre Kateb introduced the concept of “New Spice Roads”, which could give the MENA region a decisive opportunity to reposition itself as a Hub of innovation and prosperity in the post-Western world.
