About Us

In the Schirach Report Paolo von Schirach monitors and analyzes major global trends  –with special focus on the changing role of the United States of America in world affairs in a new historic context characterized by the relative decline of Europe and by the rise of Asia.

The Schirach Report examines the challenges confronting America and other mature Western societies: cost of government services, competitiveness issues, innovation, education, immigration energy and more.

The Schirach Report focuses also on the correlation between ideas and policies, since ideas and ideologies, new and old, stride to provide guidance to societies affected by transformative processes unprecedented in scale and speed.
