The figures were published while the biggest bosses in the world are currently gathered for the Forum in Davos (Switzerland): business failures are on the rise again.

According to the insurer Allianz, 10% of global companies this year (2022), and 14% next year (2023) should be affected by safeguard proceedings, payment default or liquidation.


How to explain this situation ?

Should we be alarmed, or is it just a return to normal with the end of exceptional aid linked to the health crisis?

What are the prospects for companies in a world dominated by instability due in particular to the war in Ukraine?

To discuss:

- Anne Epaulard

, Professor of Economics at Paris-Dauphine University, scientific advisor to France Stratégie and co-author of various notes on business failures during and after the Covid.
