Social Mood Conference | Socionomics Foundation

Economist Nouriel Roubini said there is a cold war between the West and “revisionist” powers including Russia, China, Iran, North Korea and Pakistan. He said these powers are “challenging the economic, social, and geopolitical order that the U.S., and Europe, and the West created after World War II.”

Roubini told Yahoo! Finance that the next 10 years could bring a confrontation between the U.S. and China on the issue of Taiwan, causing the current cold war to become “hot.” He added, “That’s how we get to World War III.”

Meanwhile, Tesla founder Elon Musk worries that the Russia-Ukraine conflict could also lead to world war. To ensure peace between the two countries, Musk suggested that Ukraine give Russia permanent control of Crimea, which Russia illegally annexed in 2014.
