Recommendation

The World Economic Forum conducted a global survey of experts and leaders for its 2013 Summit on the Global Agenda. More than 1,500 respondents – from more than 100 countries, from all age groups, and from disciplines encompassing business, academia and government – identified 10 significant trends to watch for in 2014. They also noted how these trends will affect different regions of the world. In several regions, rapid global change, crumbling values and joblessness pose threats to the social order. On the other hand, a promising future in such areas as biotechnology and “networked thinking” offers chances for real progress and reform. Illustrative graphics and clear, accurate prose, much of it written by experts in different fields, present a wealth of timely data. getAbstract finds that this report will be valuable not just to global leaders, but to anyone who believes information is fundamental to improving society. Considering how fast the world is changing, policy makers, financiers and executives should read this report, appreciate the spots of good news, and heed its analysis and warnings.

In this summary, you will learn

  • What the top 10 global trends for 2014 are,
  • What these trends mean for different regions and
  • What promises technology holds for the future.
