After the Corona Virus   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Executive Summary: "[1] The global spread of the Corona Virus - COVID-19 - is bound to change the world as we know it. These changes will not take place in a vacuum. Rather, the changes will come as modifications - some drastic - to the long-term mega-trends that are already unfolding. [2] The most important unfolding global mega-trend is the consolidation and self-definition of the Eastern Hemisphere as the dominant geo-strategic and geo-economic entity. This dynamic is driven by the ascent of China into becoming a global or hemispheric Hegemon comes 2049. [3] The European good will engendered by the Chinese Corona Virus foreign assistance and the promises of longterm economic recovery and cooperation will be long-lasting. Similarly, the bitterness and polarization between Europe and the US, aggravated by the COVID-19 crisis, will not dissipate soon. Consequently, there is growing support throughout Europe for long-term cooperation with China and distancing from the US. The new stature of China in Europe will be formalized at the 27+1 Sino-EU Summit in Leipzig. [4] Welcome to the post-Corona Virus new Eurasia and new Eastern Hemisphere."
