Key Themes for the Year to Come: What to Look Out For in 2020
At the beginning of each year the Sign of the Times presents a list of key themes and events for the next 12 months that have the potential to be catalysts or triggers for changes to shape our markets, world and lives. In previous years these have included India’s growth trajectory, the global fight against terrorism, the growing clash of world views, important geopolitical events and key trends in science and technology. For each theme the Sign of the Times tried to paint divergent scenarios as to how these themes might play out; while in some cases events have played out as per our forecasts, in others, while the trend line was often sound, events have played out differently.
This year, as we enter into a new decade, the Sign focuses on what 2020 may bring, on key themes that not only are important for the year ahead but have the potential to shape the world for years to come and potentially a decade more. Normally one would see the presentation of extreme alternatives as a stylistic technique, however, recent years suggest that the extremes are the actual alternatives.Read More Archived copies of Sign of the Times
