Multipolarity: The New Global Economy - Global Development Horizons 2011

Sweeping changes are afoot
in the global economy. As the second
decade of the 21st century unfolds and
the world exits from the 2008–09 financial crisis,

the way for a world economy with an increasingly
multipolar character. The distribution of global

The Evolving Internet: Driving forces, uncertainties and four scenarios to 2025

It’s 2025. Imagine that the Internet has underpinned
a new wave of global prosperity. It is now
as central to the lives and opportunities of people
in the outskirts of Mexico City and rural Sri
Lanka as it is to people in Tokyo, New York, and
London. Myriad new applications cater to most
of the world’s population and to businesses of all
sizes and shapes.
Or maybe not.
Maybe the Internet has become a victim of its
own success, with the explosion of Internet
products and services now a source of frustration

Four Scenarios for the
Future of BioSciences
No one can reliably predict if emerging life
science technologies will be wildly successful,
or fall short of expectations—or whether the
public will accept or reject these new scientific
techniques. What we do know for certain is
that multiple futures are possible. So how do we describe, anticipate and plan for these possible futures?
Prof. Paul Schoemaker has led a team of management researchers from the Mack Center for Technological
