Jacob Shapiro: From Globalization To A Multipolar World

On today’s episode of “The Macro Trading Floor,” Andreas and Alfonso welcome Jacob Shapiro, Director of Geopolitics at Cognitive Investments for a discussion on the global trend to a multipolar world.

In 2022, geopolitics has been one of the leading factors in markets, so we invited an expert in geopolitics to help us navigate this environment. Expecting a shift away from globalization and a more multipolar world over the next decade, this trend has many implications for economies around the world. Jacob walks through the U.S/China relations, Europe's energy crisis and discusses which countries are best positioned in this environment, before finally sharing his actionable trade idea, but to hear that, you'll have to tune in!
