In 2019 the 2018 Laureate Prof.Dr.Paul Romer (photo) reflekted in Astana/Nur-Sultan about the proper role of governments within market economies which is of utmost importance to switch economic thinking from short-term profit-goals towards long-term sustainability-goals.
|15.05.2019 : Trade Innovation Cycles
Since 1800 the Trade Sector in Europe has run through major innovation cycles roughly every 25 years as Prof.Dr.B.Hallier showed in his former research on Applied Sciences. Now he defined the forthcoming changes
for the distribution systems in the period 2025 - 2050.
Logarithms/AI will dominate the whole ordering, storing and distribution processes; the limitation of store-sizes will be challenged by unlimited assortments on Sales Platforms supported by the Internet of Things or influencers; neuro -marketing 02 will not only analyze the human brain of consumers but directly intervene in decisions; brick-and-stone markets will become cash-zone free; robotic delivery will go into first major field applications; know-how and investment will be bundled by across-sector mergers/joint ventures between retail/wholesale/data-pools/technology experts/ logistics/label-manufacturers and others : becoming partners in a world-wide "distribution machine".
|25.04.2019 : Wealth of Nations
After a nearly thirty years long hyper globalization cycle as a driver for innovation, world-trade and modern liberal society
now there is the danger of an upcoming period of protectionism by populist, protectionist and national oriented platforms.
The Astana Economic Forum 2019 will focus on dangers like trade-wars or Brexit for the world economy. This hot topic of the AEF is for Prof.Dr.Hallier a chance to defend open market systems and the global growth of the wealth of nations. The Conference will be opened by the first President of Kazakhstan, Nursultan Nazarbayev; key-speakers among others are Christine Lagarde/Managing Director IMF and Paul Romer/ Nobel Laureate Economics in 2018.

The 28th Associations' World Congress (AWC) was organized in 2019 in Gothenburg/Sweden. Behind the Association of Association Executives (AAE) are 24.000 members and subscribers located in Europe, Africa, India and other countries/regions.
Prof.Dr.B.Hallier (at the photo together with Damian Hutt/Executive Director of AAE) praised the Swedish hospitality and the excellent opportunity to learn beyond the borders of the own sectors like in Gothenburg for example by case studies presented by the Volvo Group/Paul Welander or the Nobel Media AB/Laura Sprechmann.
