Today’s investors are riding the wave of the longest bull market in history. However, with multi-year trends coming to a head, some are starting to voice their concern about the grey rhino on the horizon. The year 2020 is emerging as a popular point in time for predictions on when the next economic downturn may arrive.
In the meantime, 2019 is set to be a year dominated by growing divides in the global economy: fed hikes are set to drive a wedge between emerging and mature markets; income inequality will reserve stock market rewards and the latest technologies for the 1%; and populism will continue to bring disruptive political ideas into the mainstream.
However, far from signaling doomsday scenarios, this divergence is creating opportunities for new technologies, new business models, and new social movements to emerge in response. At “Bridging the Divide”, we gather politics, technology and investor experts to identify where the new opportunities will emerge in 2019 and beyond.
