Our vision is to make economics intelligible and of practical use for business and investment decision-making.
Our mission is to provide economic and financial information to national and international business communities, with the specific objective of contributing to more informed business decision-making in these communities.
We intend to embark on our mission by aiding Kapital Economics’ various national associate companies through the provision of operational frameworks for the company’s associates while contributing to their information base, as well as establishing European operations to provide several short courses and conferences to showcase the usefulness of economic information and data analytics.
Kapital Economics is a company based in the Netherlands and was founded in 2018. Its establishment is in response to the perceived need of business-decision makers for a practical, real world understanding of the major changes taking place in the global economy.
Kapital Economics was born from the perceived shortcomings of universities and business schools to make economics intelligible and of practical use for business and investment decision-making. In taking this role upon itself, Kapital Economics must ultimately be perceived as being totally independent and useful to the business community it intends to serve.
Kapital Economics is an independent body that monitors global economic developments.
What we do
Tracking the global economic cycle
We monitor the global economy while adhering to a certain analytical framework to identify the most important developments taking place in the global economy, and to get a sense of where the global economy is headed.
It is our view that the world economy moves in cycles – long waves and shorter cycles conditioned by these long waves – and tends to be dominated by the trend and cyclical movement of certain core economies. Most other analyses deny such cycles as being inherent and recurrent, seeing macroeconomic phenomena as the result of various random global shocks or policy decisions in the major global economies.
Monitor of key global economic indicators
Our report on the global economy is referred to as the Global Economic Monitor (GEM) and is prepared on a monthly basis. As its name suggests, this report monitors important trends in the global economy as a whole and a number of key variables in particular.
