I am a writer based in Brussels, Belgium. I provide political and economic analysis and forecasting for Europe.

You can reach me at alexkorbel [at] gmail [dot] com.

I am also a research fellow at the Molinari Economic Institute (Brussels, Paris, Montreal), a political analyst for Contrepoints and a columnist for 24hgold.com.

This blog offers up-to-date, real-time analysis on developments in Europe. The blog entries here provide my reactions to the evolution of the political and economic crisis as well as my forecasts for where I think this crisis is headed. I also use this space to comment on data releases and present my latest media appearances (broadcast and print media).

I have worked for private companies, governmental agencies, think tanks and NGOs in various countries including Belgium, Canada, France, Turkey and the UK.

I have a MSc in International Risk Management, and two MAs in Political Sciences and EU Public Affairs.

The opinions expressed here are my own and do not reflect those of any clients.
