In collaboration with PwC, Eurasia Group continuously monitors and analyses the major trends shaping the global business environment, and produces a series of quarterly reports.

  • Politics and the future of global finance
  • The financial crisis and social unrest
  • Responses to crisis will increase corruption
  • Opportunities and risks in infrastructure
  • Natural gas goes global

The extraordinary breadth and depth of the current worldwide economic turmoil, and its evolution, are creating new uncertainties in both the international and local political environments. Now, more than ever, it is crucial to understand emerging global trends.
