Economic Outlook - the Most Surprising Trends That Will Reshape the Global Economy
Economic Outlook - the Most Surprising Trends That Will Reshape the Global EconomyA dinner speech with Dr. Daniel Altman
As individuals, companies, and countries struggle to recover from the economic crisis, too many are focused on forecasts for the next week, month, or quarter. Yet we should be asking what the global economy will look like in the years to come.
This is exactly what the Harvard-trained economist Daniel Altman does in his indispensable bestseller «Outrageous Fortunes: The Twelve Surprising Trends That Will Reshape the Global Economy». Altman’s incisive analysis brings together hidden trends, societal pressures, and policy endgames to make twelve surprising predictions about the years ahead. Altman tells which industries will grow, which economies will crumble, which investments will pay off – and why China’s new economic supremacy will be short.
At Food for Thought 3.12, Daniel Altman will offer an essential guide for the road ahead. We are looking forward to welcoming you to the habitual hospitality at GDI!
