Accuracy Talks Straight #5 – One Partner, One View
My pen must be wiser.
For this editorial in summer 2022, I would have liked nothing more than to wish you a lovely, light, magical summer.
Unfortunately, war has taken hold at Europe’s door, prices are exploding and the planet is suffocating.
My pen must be wiser.
Summer is a time to step back and reflect; let us take advantage of it to relearn…
– to relearn simplicity to find the taste for simple and efficient action again. The complexity dogma paralyses us; let us unburden ourselves of it! (The Cultural Corner with Sophie Chassat)
– to relearn to live together around the concept of the common good and aim for reasonable economic development in the long term. (Economic point of view with Hervé Goulletquer)

But to what extent is this still true post-2020 after the unfolding of the public health crisis and the wave of capital injected into the economy at negative real interest rates? (Industry Insight with Justine Schmit and Nicolas Paillot de Montabert).
This summer, let us take inspiration from Erasmus and his humane wisdom.
‘It is the greatest of folly to wish to be wise in a world of madmen.’
‘The whole world is home to us all.’
So, let us be wise; let us be mad; but let us be respectful of one another and to the generations to come!
