In the period of the coronavirus pandemic little seems to be more worrisome than getting infected and developing alarming symptoms. Yet Covid-19 is far below the principal worries that vex businessmen in the real life. AlixPartners have surveyed 3000 top executives from countries like the USA, the UK, Germany, France, China, Canada, Italy, Switzerland and Japan. What those representatives of business were fretting about may be categorized in three groups: busted supply chains, trouble hiring workers, and poorly managed IT networks.
This does not look overly encouraging at first sight. However, if we assume that the world is transforming towards regional economies with separate currency zones, that IT technologies are getting demonopolized and therefore more widely available, and that new trade routes are being established which would lead to cutting on mass waste and greater energy efficiency, we may look more optimistically into what the new 2022 year has got for us.
