About the Webinar
The financial crisis and long-term demographic trends have transformed the future of the developed world. In the short term, petroleum price trends, a definitive solution to the eurozone crisis and the outcome of the U.S. elections will determine the economic performance of the world´s leading economies. But over the longer term, events in the developing nations, especially the resolution of their institutional issues and the pace of globalization, will be decisive for the future of the developed world. What are the prospects for the United States and the eurozone over the next few years, and what new opportunities will their future open up for the rest of the world, particularly for Asia?
