6 experts at Davos share what’s on the horizon for 2023 – WEF, 14.01.23

Will 2023 Learn From The Crises of 2022? – Global Stage/ GZERO Media, 3.01.23

  • For Ian Bremmer, president of Eurasia Group and GZERO, the main reason for hope in 2023 is that this year some people realized that there are big problems worth fixing. Although we definitely live in a G-zero world with a vacuum of global leadership, he adds, we’ve also seen unprecedented Western unity that would not have happened without Russia invading Ukraine. Ian believes that resistance to a negotiated solution to the war will come from the developing world and that Elon Musk is definitely complicating things with how he’s running Twitter.
  • Microsoft President Brad Smith discussed the UN Sustainable Development Goals, which at their halfway point he sees as a “glass half full, half empty” but questions how progress is being measured. Also, Smith sees Russia turning to civilians in Ukraine because its military is losing against Ukrainian soldiers, which he regards as the opposite of what the world agreed to do after World War II. On climate, he doesn’t see things in good shape after COP27 but hopes today’s multiple ongoing crises will push us to do more things together.

The World Ahead 2023 – The Economist, 12.22

  • Ten trends to watch in the coming year – By Tom Standage, Editor, The World Ahead 2023
    AFTER TWO years in which the pandemic was the force shaping the immediate future, the main driver now is the war in Ukraine. In the coming months the world will have to grapple with unpredictability around the conflict’s impact on geopolitics and security; the struggle to control inflation; chaos in energy markets; and China’s uncertain post-pandemic path. To complicate matters further, all these things are tightly coupled, like an interlocking series of gear wheels.

Year Ahead 2023 – Project Syndicate, 01.23
The year 2022 was one of grim and grisly returns: the return of major war – and nuclear brinkmanship – to Europe; the return of high inflation and the threat of stagflation globally; and the return of famine, dire poverty, and other problems against which the developing world had been making steady progress. With all these developments poised to continue, the question now is whether solutions will be found to counter the forces of discord and disintegration.


Anul politic 2023 – Cristian Andrei / Ioana Dogioiu, spotmedia, 3.01.23

Deci sunt doi factori care vor schimba intenția de vot: succesul sau insuccesul gestionării crizei și lansarea unor lideri populari în cursa prezidențială.

Perspectivele pentru economia României pe termen mediuBT Macro Focus, 20.01.23

  • Previziunile actualizate indică perspective de creștere pentru economia națională cu dinamici anuale de 4,6% în 2022, 2,6% în 2023, respectiv 3,8% în 2024.
    • Activitatea din economia națională se va redinamiza în 2024, evoluție determinată de temperarea presiunilor inflaționiste și implementarea programelor lansate de Uniunea Europeană după incidența pandemiei COVID-19. În acest scenariu previzionăm continuarea fluxurilor investiționale post-pandemie în trimestrele următoare, evoluție susținută de nivelul redus al costurilor reale de finanțare, potențialul ridicat de convergență economică europeană și accesarea programelor europene.
  • Conform scenariului central actualizat investițiile productive din România ar putea crește cu ritmuri anuale în accelerare de la 5,3% în 2022, la 6,4% în 2023, respectiv 6,7% în 2024, cu implicații pozitive la nivelul climatului din piața forței de muncă și impact de antrenare pentru celelalte componente ale PIB-ului. Rata medie anuală a șomajului ar putea să scadă de la 5,4% în 2022, la 5,2% în 2023, respectiv 5,1% în 2024.
  • La nivelul cererii externe nete prognozăm creșterea exporturilor și importurilor totale (bunuri și servicii) cu dinamici medii anuale de 10%, respectiv 11,4% în intervalul 2022 – 2024, după cum se poate observa în al treilea grafic din partea dreaptă.
    • Atragem atenția cu privire la factorii de risc pentru dinamica economiei României în trimestrele următoare: nivelul ridicat de incertitudine și tendința recentă de deteriorare a climatului macroeconomic mondial; tensiunile geo-politice; deciziile de politică economică pe plan intern, inclusiv ritmul de implementare a reformelor structurale; modificările climatice.

Ce va fi în 2023: dobânzile se stabilizează şi vor începe să scadă, băncile vor fi destul de reticente cu acordarea de credite noi, piaţa imobiliară rămâne blocată pentru că cererea de credite scade, problema lui Isărescu va fi să nu scadă cursul valutar, nu să crească, adie vânt rece în IT şi atenţie la dosarul Roşia Montană – Cristian Hostiuc, ZF, 8.01.23

IMF Upgrades Outlook For the Global Economy in 2023 – Time, 31.01.23

  • The outlook for the global economy is growing slightly brighter as China eases its zero-COVID policies and the world shows surprising resilience in the face of high inflation, elevated interest rates and Russia’s ongoing war against Ukraine.
  • That’s the view of the International Monetary Fund, which now expects the world economy to grow 2.9% this year. That forecast is better than the 2.7% expansion for 2023 that the IMF predicted in October, though down from the estimated 3.4% growth in 2022.

Anyone trying to think about what 2023 will bring is confronted by a staggering array of possibilities.

Some of these are specific: What happens if Chinese President Xi Jinping orders an invasion of Taiwan? What if Putin unleashes tactical nuclear weapons in Ukraine? What if a cyberattack cripples critical infrastructure? In many cases, just envisaging possibilities requires a leap of imagination.
