The future of journalism: Life in the clickstream

This year, The Alliance launched a major initiative, the Future of Journalism, which aims,

to manage that change for the benefit of the whole industry and journalists in particular.
How will newsrooms look? How will journalists’ jobs change with technology and

The Expanding Middle: The Exploding World Middle Class and Falling Global Inequality

The middle class get a lot of attention, particularly in
developed economies. They are held up frequently as the
engine of growth, the bastion of social values and the
arbiter of elections. And in many countries, the
commentary increasingly paints the picture of an
embattled and shrinking middle class, fighting against a
rising tide of inequality.
Within much of the developed world, parts of this picture
are justified and the last decade has seen income
disparities increase in a range of places. But globally, the

The decade ahead: Preparing for an unpredictable future in the global chemical industry

Strategic Trends provides a measure of context and coherence in an
uncertain predictive area characterized by risk, ambiguity and change.
The DCDC approach goes beyond identifying the potential future military threats to which
our Armed Forces will have to respond, and looks at the developments in areas that will
shape the wider strategic context within which Defence will have to interact. For example,
the Study addresses subjects such as: access to resources, the evolving international
system and developments in Society.

The Bellona Scenario: How to combat global warming

Bellona has set out to show how to combat global warming. Across the economy, we have
searched for solutions that already are available or on the verge of becoming so. We have
analyzed findings from both scientific publications and various reports prepared by industry and
environmental organizations.
Bellona is certainly not the first to undertake such an effort; numerous studies have been
published by academics, think-tanks, environmental organizations and governments alike. The

Public Debt in 2020: Monitoring fiscal risks in developed markets

We construct a public debt risk matrix that
ranks countries with respect to the risks stemming from debt levels
as well as from debt structures. In Chapter 3 we use our new
scenario framework, which explicitly takes a government‟s debt
structure into account, to project public debt dynamics over the next
ten years. In the baseline scenario we assume a policy of fiscal
consolidation, with the consolidation pace varying across countries.
In the “no-policy-change” scenario we project the debt levels that
