A Harvard-trained economist's startling predictions reveal critical challenges in the decades ahead, helping individuals, businesses, and governments to make smarter decisions As individuals, companies, and countries struggle to recover from the economic crisis, many are narrowly focused on forecasts for the next week, month, or quarter. Yet they should be asking what the global economy will look like in the years to come—where will the long-term risks and opportunities arise? These are the questions that Daniel Altman confronts in his provocative and indispensable book. The fate of the global economy, Altman argues, will be determined by deeper factors than those that move markets from moment to moment. His incisive analysis brings together hidden trends, societal pressures, and policy endgames to make twelve surprising but logical predictions about the years ahead. And his forecasts for the future raise a pressing question for today: With so many challenges awaiting us, are our political and economic institutions up to the task? Outrageous Fortunes tells which industries will grow, which economies will crumble, which investments will pay off, and where the next big crisis may occur. Altman's carefully reasoned text is an essential guide for the road ahead. This book isbthought-provoking. It's a nice piece of thought leadership, although I don't necessarily agree with all of his trends. Here they are in a nutshell: Part 1: Limits 1. China will get richer and then it will get poorer again. 2. The European Union will disintegrate as an economic entity. Part 2: Obstacles 3. The new colonialism will leave the colonizers and the colonized worse off in the long term. 4. Changing immigration policies in rich countries will worsen the brain drain from poor countries even as they get richer. 5. The backlash against capitalism won't last but it won't be replaced by political stability either. Part 3: Opportunities 6. Americans will become the world's sales force. 7. As the global economy integrates, the middle man will win. 8. The collapse of the World Trade Organization will unlock new gains from trade. 9. A new set of lifestyle hubs will replace today's business hubs. Part 4: Risks 10. An enormous financial black market will arise outside of traditional centers. 11. Global warming will make rich countries cleaner and richer and poor countries dirtier and poorer. 12. The structure of political institutions will stop the world from solving its biggest problems.
