2030: How Today’s Biggest Trends Will Collide and Reshape Everything
By 2030, there will be more grandparents than grandchildren on the planet. The middle class in Asia and sub-Saharan Africa will outnumber the middle class in the US and Europe combined. The global economy will be driven by the non-Western consumer for the first time in modern history. And there will be more global wealth held in the hands of women than men. In this webinar, Mauro Guillen will explore how these and other major global trends will intersect and reshape our societies, and how we need to develop peripheral vision to see how these merging forces will change our lives in the decades ahead.
Mauro Guillen is Professor of International Management at the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, where he has won numerous teaching awards and also served as Director of the Lauder Institute between 2007 and 2019. Professor Guillen is also Trustee of the Royal Foundation of Spain and serves on several advisory groups at the World Economic Forum. He holds a PhD in Sociology from Yale University.
