Cambridge Judge Business School Briefing Series

 

Future Prospects for the World Economy: What will the world economy look like in 2050?

This talk considers the opportunities and challenges facing the world economy. It will consider: the rise of the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa); the challenges facing Europe and the EURO; and the outlook for Africa. It will analyse the evolution of structural trade imbalances and high levels of private and public sector debt. Despite these challenges, there are reasons to remain optimistic about the long-term prospects for the world economy which will look very different in 2050 to what it does today.
