IMD APRIL 2012
REAL LEARNING@IMD
Dear Reader,

With IMD’s World Competiveness results scheduled to be released next month, we examine a fragmenting global economy. Austerity measures have taken a grip on Europe. For Spain, IMD’s Director Advanced Strategic Management (ASM), Professor Arturo Bris, warns rigid policy could be jeopardizing future generations.

Up ahead, IMD looks forward to welcoming President Bill Clinton. Enjoy this month’s webletter.
Best regards,

The IMD Webletter Team
