THE DEBATE

A live debate on the topic of the day, with four guests. From Monday to Thursday at 7.10 pm Paris time.

Latest update : 2016-12-28

Changing world order? What 1917 could teach us about 2017 (part 2)

In today’s Debate, we turn the clock back 100 years. In 1917, the British pound ruled the markets, World War I brought Europe to its knees and the US embarked on the road to global superpower. Tsarist Russia was on the edge of a Bolshevik Revolution and the Ottoman Empire was the “sick man of Europe”. A changing world order then, and perhaps a changing world order now too following the Brexit vote and Donald Trump’s vows to “Make America Great Again”.

Produced by Charles WENTE, François WIBAUX and Van MEGUERDITCHIAN.
