With news from financial markets grabbing headlines each day, it is easy to overlook less-obvious yet powerful trends that could affect the global economy for decades to come. Economist Daniel Altman provides a synopsis of 12 of these trends, along with solutions and challenges to the problems and opportunities they present. While Altman’s big-picture forecast provides useful insight into current developments and what they may mean for the future, it suffers from a lack of on-the-ground perspective and, of course, even expert predictions are subject to unforeseen events. getAbstract recommends this smart assessment to those interested in possible long-term outcomes and solutions to today’s economic issues.
In this summary, you will learn
- How 12 trends will change the global economy, and
- How government and business can meet the challenges and opportunities these trends present.
