Abstract:

"A look at the fundamental trends that are changing the world, from the experts at The Economist -- "Megatrends" are great forces in societal development that have profound impacts on states, markets, and civil society in the now and for the years to come. They can effectively be employed as a starting point for analyzing our world. Megachange: The World in 2050 looks at these sweeping, fundamental trends that are changing the world faster than at any time in human history. Including chapters on approximately twenty of these "megatrends," each elegantly outlined by contributors from The Economist, and rich in supporting facts and graphics, the book is a compelling read as well as a valuable research and reference tool. Groups the "megatrends" that are shaping our world into several categories: People, Life and Death, Economy and Business, and Knowledge -- Each trend is covered in a concise but detailed chapter written by an expert from The Economist -- Edited by Daniel Franklin, Executive Editor of The Economist."--Provided by publisher.
