CFA CE Event is hosted by Banque Cantonale Vaudoise
In his 2016 CFA presentation in Zurich, Christian Takushi stated "Europe cannot be understood without the global forces assailing and shaping it. Where others see the revival of nationalism ushering the impending demise of the EU and Euro, we see a transition to yet more integration and power concentration."
Christian Takushi maintains that fears about political risks in the USA and the EU are overstated and consensus is underestimating the aftermath of the US-Iran Deal, the multiple growing war risks, and the potential acceleration of events in the Middle East.
In June 2017 the Arab world will remember the 50th anniversary of the catastrophic 6 Day War and a few months later the 100th anniversary of the Fall of Jerusalem to the West, which ended 673 years of Muslim occupation and ushered the end of the last Great Caliphate. Rising Islamic powers want to reassert influence over Jerusalem and Europe. Although not a main scenario yet, Christian is monitoring the growing probability that a staged conflict could help usher a Peace Treaty, which in turn may lead to a bigger war.
However, western experts continue to see the world with linear-logical glasses, disregarding Oriental circular ways of thinking. An unprepared Europe is vulnerable to a war or shutdown of trade routes in the Middle East.
