- Insider's Take
The planet faces existential threats, World Economic Forum leader Klaus Schwab, writing with Peter Vanham, argues in this sobering analysis: Earth is getting hotter, the rich are growing richer and politics are becoming more polarized. Yet Schwab and Vanham also believe that humanity can conquer its current crises if business leaders and politicians shift their mind-sets to more long-term thinking. The authors offer a number of intriguing prescriptions, but their arguments in favor of more unionization and diversity might fail to sway some traditionalists.
