Follow @pietropaganini I am an economic and (geo)political analyst and populariser. Through my research I contribute to structured analyses of governments and business, analyses that are focused on understanding, managing and solving complex situations through content that is timely and pragmatic with compelling messages. I believe in the scientific method and actively promote the liberal viewpoint and critical thinking. My approach to problems is multi-disciplinary to take them on from a broad perspective and thus develop real solutions free of any preconceived schema and which are based on principles of functionality and common sense. I am a Montessorian. I am a free-thinker that cannot be relegated to a category, community or group of any kind.
